Susan’s So Thankful Giveaway #5: Patterns


Today’s give-away is a bunch of great patterns by different designers. First up is a groovy garment pattern, the BoHo Frock by Cheryl Kuczek of Paradiso Designs. Cheryl has some very arty designs for bags, skirts, jackets, dresses and vests on her website, so make sure to check them out. 

I have three patterns by Aunties Two, who offer lots of creative bag designs, plus baskets, bowls, boxes, and rugs. Here is their Saturday Shopper pattern, which features four pockets inside, and outside easy-access slash pockets on the outside, plus two side pockets that work well for water bottles. The handles are very sturdy, so you can pack a bunch of stuff inside.

Their Dufflette pattern is great for organizing and storing small items, such as toiletries, or stuff for sports, school or quilting. And they are so darn cute!

These sweet little Finger Pouches can be carried either on a finger (there's a loop on the back), or hung around your wrist: 

If you are a penguin lover, this one is for you! Castilleja Cotton has a bunch of different penguin designs, including this one called Catching Hearts for a small wallhanging:

Indygo Junction’s Koozie Kouture pattern by Amy Barickman has multiple designs that would make fast, fun gifts. Use up some of your special fabric scraps making designs for all types of drinks you need to keep hot or cold – soda or beer cans, coffee cups, water bottles or wine glasses.

Okay, here’s the deal: Leave a comment after this post and tell me which pattern you’d most like to win, and why. I’ll pull six names at random at 9 p.m. on Sunday Nov. 27, and try to match you up with the pattern you want. WINNERS: Jan in AZ wins the Koozie pattern; Louise wins Catching Hearts; Doreen K wins Finger Pouches; Linda Dalton wins Dufflettes; Julia in NZ wins Saturday Shopper; and EverythingQuilts wins BoHo Frock!
