Free pattern give away!

I have been very humbled and honored by the generosity of the sewing community since I began to truly get into sewing some 2 years ago.  Many people have shared with me when I had almost nothing, just a cheap machine, a handful of 99c patterns, and some thrift shop fabric to sew with.

Now I've amassed enough that I'd like to give back, or more like, pay it forward.  I have quite a large pattern collection, as I seem to be more addicted to buying patterns than fabric, possibly due to all those 99c sales. :D

I have 17 patterns to give away, all of them are uncut, and most are in or near mint condition, not even unfolded. Oh, I have one vintage to give away that is cut, but the rest are basically like new!

There are only a few rules for giving these away:
I can only ship these inside the lower 48 states in the US, I'm sorry to those in other countries...and Alaska and Hawaii. :/  The shipping cost, I hope you understand.
First to request a pattern will be the one to receive it.
Any one person can ask for up to 10 patterns!

I would like to note that you do not have to be a current follower of my blog to ask for and of these patterns.  If you stumble across this and would like some of these patterns, please don't be shy!

Or if you don't want to post you email in public, then email me at arouramc at gmail dot com for information sharing, but please also post here the items you would like.  Thanks so much!
I will contact people via email asap, and things off in the real snail mail!

Also, I have a box of more than a dozen women's Medieval and Ren style costume patterns that have been used .  All pieces are still there, but most have been cut to either a size 10 or 12.  If you are interested in these costumes patterns, please let me know, and I'll send you more information.

Happy sewing ladies (and gents), and thanks for your support in reading my blog, it has really kept me motivated. :)


  1. Well, I'm an Aussie so that rules me out of your giveaway, but I would like to say just how generous you are to be thinking of others like this. Love your reviews and the variety of garments that you sew....

  2. Ooh, this is so thoughtful and generous! I would LOVE to have the Simplicity 6121 and Butterick 5495 patterns. daniKateDesigns at gmail dot com

  3. Angie, it has been a while since I've heard from you! I hope you and your family are doing well. I just sewed up the last piece of fabric you gave me, it turned out beautifully. :)

    Ok, so I set aside b5495 and S6121 for you. I plan on getting them in the mail early next week, and I'll email you this evening (as I've lost your address). I really think you'll like the vintage top,I sewed it up once, and it is very cute, it'll be adorable on your little ones!

    Doobee, I'm sorry I cannot send them overseas, the shipping cost would be prohibitive for me. :(

  4. If you still have the following patterns I would love to have them.
