Time Flies!

Yes, time flies when you are having fun!

I am very busy teaching, writing new patterns, drafting – and even occasionally sewing.

And I’ve started my new year by planning a very exciting 2014 – and getting new logo, new pattern layout and professional photos done. In other words – I’m getting ready to rock!:-)

My new logo. Get ready to see it everywhere!

My new logo. Get ready to see it everywhere!

My plan is, that 2014 will be the year that I can make a living working for my self full time – i.e. no fabric store, no teaching IT and English. Just patterns, workshops and other things to do with sewing that I can’t speak of yet…

So. Since I always seem to be too busy to sit down and write a proper blog post (and take pictures etc)  – I made a video for you. Here’s what I look like and how my English sounds. Don’t judge me too hard:-)

The video was recorded a while ago – but that’s just my life at the moment for you:-)

What do you think of this format? Do you enjoy watching videos? Should I make more? I was thinking of recording something where I show you different techniques as well as just blabbering……

P.S. I’ve started implementing the new logo and pattern layout into the older patterns, but it’s going to take me a while. However – I did already finish the update of the Birgitte Basic Tee – and also updated the pattern itself (it has a much better side seam line now) and graded it up to 4XL!
If you already own it, you can redownload it (go to your account and find it under ‘digital products’. If not – you can buy it – I highly recommend it 🙂

    Hi Maria!

    What a coincidence, I was just about to start sewing the Birgitte tee, it’s great that is has been updated… I am logging into my Craftsy account, and downloading the pattern again, but I still have the old version, the sizes are different, and the lines to match the pages are the grid lines, I believe they are the old format? How can I get the new version of this pattern?

    Thanks a lot for your help,

      Hi Tatiana

      Hmm, I don’t know why the pattern hadn’t been updated on Craftsy – I clealy remember uploading it… But anyway. It is working now. I just checked, so go try again:-)

    Hi Maria, I love Olivia and am excited to see your other new pattern! I enjoyed the vlog and think you should do more if it is easier than blogging. Your English is great and I love your accent. Off to download new Brigitte

    I love love the Kimono and Day to Night Tees. I’ve made them several times for my daughter and she receives many compliments when she wears them. I do have a question. I thought I read somewhere that the sleeves on the Birgitte Tee will work with the Day to Night Tee. Is that true?
