New Pattern Giveaway!


winners announced. giveaway finished
congratulations to dawn, terry, garanina,linda and helene.


I have been meaning to blog for a couple of weeks and have had some computer problems or should I say speeding problems. My downloading was going so slow and I had no idea why, I could go and cook a 3 course meal and still not have even Google loaded up....Lol, I thought it was the amount I was allowed on my plan to download but apparently not, but all is fixed now.
I had made a few of these over the years and was asked to write the pattern out for a friend. I had never seen one like this before so I decided to write the pattern to sell on Etsy. ( Available soon)
Well here is the full reveal of my first pattern.....
Now your iron will no longer look untidy in the laundry or kitchen like mine or when you are traveling to quilt class it won't be just chucked in your bag it has it's own carry bag. The peg bag can hang on the line or the wall of your laundry.
It is going to be available as a PDF pattern and normal pattern through Etsy in the next couple of weeks.
Here is a different colorway made by my dear friend Judy


It looks so good in another color 'Well done Judy'.
Judy did the pattern as a trial for me and it coincided with a peg bag swap she was in with Tozz.
So the set was done in the color's Tozz had chosen and I presume to go with her Laundry.

Have a wonderful week!
Hugs Dawn x

Hi Dawn....I do have a cover for my iron which is similar to yours. I actually brought it from the Avon Representative.....it was years ago...haven't seen one since. It is great to take in my caravan. Thanks for the opportunity to be in the draw.
Kind Regards

Ruth B said...

Oh so cute...love the fabrics you chose!

Jeannette said...

I hope I win if thats not to greedy. Wouldn't be nice to have a tidy coloured coordinate laundry. I wonder if the win comes with a good fairy to do my ironing. I will easily iron new material but have to bribe myself to do the real ironing.

Woops for got to say I will bolg about it.

Quetion, does the iron caddy have a zipper under the ruffle? Just wondering how it stays closed with the weight of the iron... 8-)

You are right, I never saw ones like these before. Good to try to sell your idea too. I really like the iron caddy. I could use the peg bag too since hanging laundry is my favorite chore.
