Fat Quarter Purse Frenzy!

I'm so excited that my little tutorial was linked on:

whip up
one pretty thing
craft gossip

Eek! How cool!

Unfortunately, my pdf host only allows about 400 downloads of the file per day -my bandwidth and inbox just can't take it anymore. The tutorial is now available for a small fee through my etsy shop. Good luck!

Update - Some tips on printing the pattern:

You have a few options. You could print it out on multiple sheets of paper, then trim off the margins and tape it all back together (Thanks to Candice, who told me if you print it through paint, you'll need to scale it down 65% before printing). Or you could scale it down to fit on one page and then take it to some place with a copy machine and enlarge it to it's original size (10.5 x 18"). OR you could do it the old school way by scaling it down to one page and printing that out, then using graph paper enlarging it by hand.

Thanks for all your compliments and interest - it's been a wild few days!

p.s. I'd love to see pictures of bags you make from the tutorial, so send me pics or links.

Would you have time to e-mail this to your poor sister? Hmm... maybe you forgot about me since I never blog anymore. Maybe you can tell me why you wanted a copy of my story e-mail to you. I keep thinking about it and yet I haven't called you to ask.

Love your purse and your fabric! It looks so professional. :-)

I had heard of 'Spoonflower' but didn't know what it was. I checked it out, WOW, that's so cool that we can design our own fabric. I called mum and told her about it, she's doodling and dreaming up ideas.

Thank you so much for generously sharing your pattern, if you have a moment, please email me:

Thanks a bunch,
Julie Andrea

I was able to print the PDF, but the actual patten was not there.

Laura said...

Muzzymom - the pattern is the jpeg included in the original blog post. Click and save the image (or drag to your desktop).

I am not able to email the pattern out anymore. Download it while you can, or purchase it at wilsons.etsy.com

Thank you so much for sharing. I did know how to do that with the jpeg, I guess I was having a brain blip. Thank you.
