Five Dollar Friday.

Hi y’all, it’s FIVE DOLLAR FRIDAY!

The Frosty’s Christmas, High Noon, Barn Stars, and Mr Fox’s Garden PDF patterns are on special for $5 each (plus applicable local taxes).

The printed patterns are available for $10 each including free shipping worldwide (plus applicable local taxes).

I’ve also put the PDF mug rug patterns on super special this week. They are perfect for quick gifts.

The Santa and Reindeer PDF patterns are $3 each and the Boris and Felix PDF patterns are $1.50 each (plus applicable local taxes).

I’ve bundled the (2) Christmas mug rug patterns and the Boris/Felix mug rug patterns together so I can send them out as printed patterns. You can find them here. Choose either the Christmas or Boris/Felix options.

I’ve got 40 minutes to take up a hem on a velvet evening gown. Help me!!! xx

What do you think…

Hiya lovelies,

As you know I added $10 printed patterns to the Five Dollar Friday promotion this week. I’m glad to say it was a great success.

The exercise made me think that maybe it would be easier to list the Five Dollar Friday PDF patterns the same way – all in one listing with a drop-down menu. What do you think?

Do you prefer them listed separately or would you prefer them listed in one listing so you don’t have to leap from page to page (if you want to buy more than one)?

Let me know.

I’m going to leave the (selected) printed patterns on sale for $10 for the rest of the week.

IMG_1219This week has been another week (so far) of catching up with endless end of year paperwork and appointments. I crossed most things off my to-do list today, all I have to do now is clean my workspace and I’m ready to go with some new projects. Yippee, Ms Janome is feeling pretty neglected!

Have a fantastic week everyone, toni xx

 

Five Dollar Friday!

UPDATE: The kids ordered pizza for dinner so I had time to make an Etsy listing for the printed patterns. TEN DOLLAR FRIDAY for printed patterns is here! FREE postage worldwide. Find them here on Etsy – use the drop down menu under the price to select the patterns.


Hiya lovelies, it’s Friday again and these are our Five Dollar Friday PDF patterns for this week.

Santa’s House 2, Reindeer Games, and Flamingo Dance are all Aud $5 each (plus any local taxes payable) until Monday.

If you prefer printed patterns (posted to your mailing address) please scroll to the bottom of the page for details. The three printed patterns are on special for Aud$10 including free postage!


The last of the Henry pins are on special this week too. You can grab a Henry Jones Jr. enamel moose pin for the amazing price of $7.50 which includes FREE shipping worldwide.


It has been another super busy week and I’ve barely had the time to look at the sewing machine much less get anything done. I’ve spent all week, an amazing amount of time actually, putting together sample pattern packs for retailers, posting prizes, and formatting the new patterns to fit six double sided pages.

Why six? I have to keep paper patterns under 50 grams otherwise the postage price almost triples. A pattern that weighs under 50g costs $2.95 to post o/seas, a pattern that weighs 51g+ costs $8!

Frosty’s Christmas Quilt Pattern

Can you believe Christmas is only six weeks away? Scary stuff isn’t it. I bought a Christmas tree this year. It’s in a box on the lounge room floor. It’s been there for three weeks and the cats think it’s a new piece of furniture LOL. I keep looking at it, willing myself to put it up. Christmas is a time of intense grief and loss for me and I struggle with it. This year I’m determined to turn that around. Little steps…

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to those of you who have ‘bought me a coffee’ using the App in the sidebar. I was made aware of the App by another quilter/artist who encouraged me to put it on the freebie page of the website. I don’t make a great deal of money, certainly not a wage at this point, so I’m immensely grateful for your generosity. Thank you.

Well, it’s back to the grindstone for me. There’s dinner to be thought about, coffee to be drunk, and fabric to be cut up into little pieces and put together again. Quilts to be made!

Have a lovely weekend everyone, toni xx

It’s Five Dollar Friday!

Welcome to Five Dollar Friday! This week’s PDF patterns are Scrap Bin Sheep, Scrappy Alphabet, and Patchwork Elephants. The patterns will be available at this special price until Monday (AEST).


I did a quick stats check this week and our free patterns have been downloaded 26,088 times since January this year. Wow, that’s a lot of patterns and a lot of quilts. We’ll have a new free Christmas project courtesy of Therm-o-Web in a few weeks time, accompanied by another amazing giveaway.


I’m hoping to get to the sewing machine this weekend. This week has been incredibly busy family wise and I’ve not had time. When I did manage to grab a few minutes, I’ve totally botched everything I’ve touched LOL. Not an auspicious start to the Christmas season!


Did you know I’ve set up a Facebook group called “The Red Boot’s Gang” where you can hang out and share piccies and projects and stuff,

Pop on over and sign up, it’s still in it’s infancy but I’m hoping you will enjoy being there. You are welcome to chat about other projects (other than Red Boots) but I ask that you keep politics and religion out of the chat.

There will be giveaways and exclusives (starting in the New Year) so come on over and say Hi.

It’s Five Dollar Friday!

We have three patterns on sale this week! The Kennel Club, Catnip, and Isaac the Robot. All three patterns are $5 each (plus local taxes) in the Etsy store for this weekend only.

My day has been spent helping our No. 1 son make a jellyfish costume for a Halloween party. We put LED lights in the top of the Jellyfish so it glows. He’s six foot one so you can imagine what it looks like when he’s wearing it LOL.

He says that because he is limping – broken toes! – the jellyfish will blob up and down as he moves. I LOVE his sense of humour, especially since he is in a lot of pain. He actually snapped the bones, completely severing them from each other. Eeeek! Too much information? LOLjellyfish costumeIt’s been a long week this week and the weekend is going to be even busier. I don’t think we will get a chance to sit down until Sunday night, after we pick up No. 1 daughter from the airport. Come 9pm Sunday night I will be joining Spud on the couch.

TGIF

Spud’s name came about because he’s a fat little couch potato. However yesterday, while he was downstairs, he decided to go crazy and tear around the house three times at full speed. He runs like a rabbit, back legs moving together, and for a spud, he’s very, very fast. I swear I could run him in the Melbourne Cup and he’d give the horses a run for their money.

He’s back on the couch again, flat on his back, legs in the air. A picture of ginger and white innocence. I think the exercise was too much him! xx
