Win a Sewing Pattern…It’s Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to Kristen, Sarah, and Mindy!

It’s time for Sew Mama Sew giveaway day! It feels like a party this week…all my patterns are on sale and I’m giving away a free copy of On the Go Bags too! (It’s in a different post, just to clear up any confusion!) It’s so much fun to give gifts to people that will love them. Thanks for stopping by!

If this is the first time you’ve visited, let me tell you a few things about myself and my patterns! I’m a homeschooling mother of 6. I love to sew, but I’m constantly trying new creative projects.

Since the last giveaway I have released a pattern for the Highland Avenue House.

Highland Avenue House Pillow Pattern | Radiant Home Studio

My two most popular patterns, the Retro Rucksack and the Water Bottle Tote have been completely updated and reformatted. I’ve added more technical illustrations, updated zipper installation for a more professional finish, and updated the pattern tiling so that it is more user-friendly. The Retro Rucksack also has new tips on how to created a roll-top bag in addition to the original recessed zipper option.

If you have never visited before, take a look at my tutorials and things I’ve made pages to see what I like to sew. This year, I’ve written a series of posts called “Tote Bag Upgrade” with monthly tutorials for turning plain canvas bags into modern accessories. I’m part of the Betz White Sewing Collective as a regular contributor. And this week, one of my patterns was released in a new book called On the Go Bags!

Radiant Home Studio | Projects from Fall 2015

I write a monthly newsletter to share more personal updates and sneak peeks of upcoming projects and patterns with my subscriber friends. I also include a recap of my posts for the month and a list of the my favorite sewing, craft, and mothering articles I have collected to share with you! It’s the kind of letter that makes you want to curl up on the couch with a cup of tea while you browse through the inspiring projects and encouraging articles. New subscribers will receive a FREE Mini Highland House pattern. I’d love it if you would sign up!

    Your houses are so cute! I have your Retro Rucksack pattern on my sewing list, I purchased it as part of the Perfect Pattern Parcel. Is there a way to receive the pattern updates?

  2. Cindy says:

    I do buy patterns for home décor and gift items. I love sewing things that don’t require fitting. It’s a good break from clothing. One thing I’d love to sew more of is basket/storage types of containers.

  3. Rose says:

    I totally love the house pattern and the bags too many nice ones to choose from.

    I love the little house pillow. So cute! I do buy patterns for my home decor, mostly pillow patterns. I would love to learn to sew some curtains. Buying them is just so expensive. I also crochet my own throws, which saves some money. 🙂 Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  73. I LOVE your work! I’m a homeschooling mom, too… of 10! (Well, 3 have graduated so far, but anyway….) I typically don’t buy home decor patterns; just clothing patterns, and once in a while, I’ll buy purse patterns. I’m an experienced, self-taught sewist, and usually draft my own patterns. Except for clothing… those completely confuse my brain. 😉
