NEW PATTERN!! Mellebug Reversible and Adjustable Hat

Its only taken me two weeks to blog about the release of my hats but it has finally happened. Truth be told my pc is on its way out and is sooooooo slow to work with that I dread going on it. If I sell enough patterns who knows I may just get that much needed upgrade for my computer.

Okay, Lets get down to details (reading about my computer woes is not that all interesting). Hats!! Yes Hats. If you have been following my little journey through this blog you would have noticed that I make reversible/adjustable hats. I look back and notice that I have been selling them for over 4 years now, quite a feat for me. I would ideally like to continue making them but alas as my babies are growing up I have to return to work. SO! I am handing the reins over to YOU!!. I have loving drafted the patterns of all the sizes I have, photographed the process and written detailed instructions. As with all of my patterns you are more than welcome to sell your creations on a small scale as long as you credit ‘Pattern by Mellebug’ in your listings. This was my third baby and I was very reluctant to sell the pattern I drafted and created many years ago. I dont believe there is any other handmade pattern out there that is similar in design.

The patterns are available in my etsy store (links on side of page). You can purchase the sizes individually at $10 AUD each or you can purchase all four for $35 AUD. The prices of these patterns are due to the nature of this design, its selling capacity and the hard work that went into creating it.

Sizes available are:

small, medium, large and adult.

The instructions come with over 50 photographs to help you along the way and thorough instructions. I believe a person with a little sewing know how can tackle this pattern.

Please head over to my etsy store for more info.

Happy sewing peoples!!

Wristlet Clutch Pattern Release

So there are a few things that I am terrible at, one is not maintaining this blog and the second would have to be ironing. Who else is not an ironer?

Anyhoo! Over the last 5 months I really have been sewing up hats for the summer season, so many I think I lost count. This would be my third season of making hats now and I am really proud of how far I have come. I also added to my list of selling and took the plunge and purchased a stack of these Measuring Tape Bangles which you can purchase at my ebay store

Now we are in 2013 and I am taking a new direction with my Mellebug makings. I have decided to focus on some pattern making whilst I return to the classroom to do some relief work. My little man is entering kindy this year so as Bob Dylan says “times they are a changing”.

So here is my first pattern, newly listed in my etsy store last night.

A cute little accessory that can be made in just a couple of hours. The pattern is easy to follow with pictures to help you along the way. You can make it out of colourful quilting cotton or luxurious silk. The pattern is only $5 AUD and you can purchase it at me etsy store.
