Christmas is Coming…

Like I said to the lovelies on Facebook, you can slap me for saying that if you like. It really is a bit too early to mention the C word – unless you are planning on sewing handmade gifts of course!

With this in mind I’ve put our soft toy patterns on special this week. If you get started now you can easily make a whole family of dolls for your cuties for very little cost. You could make a little pillow and mini quilt to match each toy. Feel free to resize the templates from any of my patterns to suit. You could also make a matching tote bag to keep them in.

I’ve also put our Scrap Bin Sheep and Land Down Under quilt patterns on special. Same as always $4 for the PDF’s and $11.50 for the printed patterns.

 

Would you like me to make more easy-to-make soft toy and doll patterns? What about mug rug patterns, are they still a thing? What would you like to see?


I have quite literally spent all of my week chasing copyright infringements. There are a ton of people on Facebook and Instagram claiming my work as their own, as well as a couple of companies making products with my images on them. Some backpacks have shown up with my Wild Things critters on them.wild things cropped

I’ve decided the best way to deal with the Facebook and Instagrammers is to spam their posts with my details – I’ve picked up some new followers (hi!) – and then report them. If you come across them please just direct their followers to my page and then report the page (thank you). The companies I can prosecute!

Enjoy your weekend lovely people. I’m hoping to get some sewing done and to add a few thousand steps to my Fitbit count :o>  toni xxIMG_0559

 

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.
