Vintage pattern destash

As well as having a clear out of my modern patterns, I also thought it was time I sorted through my vintage patterns. As before please let me know in the comments or @makingnmarking on Twitter if you would like any and I will happily post them out. If you felt like you’d like to donate a small amount of money to a charity of your choice in return that would be brilliant.

With the vintage patterns I want to make it clear that I haven’t sewn up any of these patterns and I don’t know whether all of the pattern pieces are included. They have all come from charity shops or been inherited, so please don’t be too disappointed if there is something missing. You’ll see that some of these patterns are very old, and many have been cut and used by previous owners. However, I can’t help but think they would still be of use or interest to some people, and I would really love to see anything that is made using some of these. It always intrigues me who originally bought these, and what their makes might have looked like. 

I’ve photographed the patterns in fours, then turned each one over so you can hopefully see a bit more info or the line drawings.

Pattern destash 

It’s that time of year when I’m having a clear out and making space in my sewing room. Most of these patterns were free with magazines so I’m not asking for payment, although if you’d like to make a small donation to a charity of your choice that would be brilliant. It’ll be first come first served, and I’m afraid I’m limiting this to UK only to keep my postage costs down. If there’s a pattern you would like please leave the name/number of the pattern in the comments & also either your Twitter handle or email address so I can contact you to get postal details. You can also tweet/DM me @makingnmarking Lastly be quick – about 6 of these have already been snapped up!

Post updated 2.9.17 – the patterns on the photo below are the only ones remaining. Some of the others are already winging their way to their new owners. Let me know asap if you’d like any. 

*Giveaway* Pattern de-stash 

As the summer holidays draw to a close I’m trying to tidy the house and prepare for the new school year. Today I’ve been sorting out my sewing space, and finally got around to sorting through my patterns. All of the patterns below are unused. Some were freebies, some came with magazines, and some I purchased. I am happy to mail them out free of charge, so if you see one you would like please DM me via @makingnmarking on Twitter, and as long as it’s still available I will ask for your address. Any problems re accessing Twitter please leave a comment below. I’ll do my best to keep updating this blog post so you can see what’s still available. I’m not looking to make any money from this, and it feels nice to do a little something for some of the lovely sewists out there. However, if you were inclined to make a small donation (50p, £1?) to a charity of your choice that would be brilliant. If you’d rather not please don’t worry, I have come across so much generosity within the sewing community in the past couple of years. I’m thinking initially of keeping it to a maximum of 2 patterns per person, but if you would like several please list them in order of preference and if no one else expresses interest I will happily forward them on to you. I like the thought of helping out as many sewists as possible 😊 Lastly, I’m keeping this giveaway open to UK residents only. Enjoy!

#football #sport #sports #court #outdoors #optoutside #sky #clouds #bluesky #nightfall #twilight #bluehour #violet The landscape is changing and whilst the trees are still vibrant, many of the fields have been harvested and are looking drab. Looking at Wilfie's expression however, the surroundings don't detract from his enjoyment of the 10 mile run he just accompanied me on. He kept up perfectly and is now snoozing beside me. He's a good dog. •
