Yes, It’s also Me-Made-May month, and I’ll come back to that later in the week, but for now, I just want to share this. Also look for coupon code (20% off) further down in this post!


Some months back, Mari from Seamster Patterns got the idea for a month of collaboration between indie designers, such as myself. We will post tutorials, interview each other and get to know our com-leagues (see what I tried to do there? Make a new word from competition and colleague. Works a LOT better in Danish, I’ll tell ya… Have a better suggestion? Please tell me!) and learn from each others experiences.

It’s such a great idea – and on top of the getting-to-know-each-other thing, Mari also organized the blog tour and some really great Sewalongs – which have fabulous prizes from all the designers as well as from Magazines etc. You should totally participate!

If you’d like to use one of my patterns for the sewalongs – here is a 20 % off coupon code to use for MariaDenmark patterns, if you shop for a minimum of 15 € before May 15: SEWINDIE 
Just enter the code at check out and your discount will be calculated in your total.

You don’t have to use any of my patterns – in fact, you might want to try one or more of the other great designers:

There are 4 sewalongs, each with a different theme, and you can participate in one or more of them as you please. You can even participate with different garments in each sewalong as well.
