Beginner Heirloom Pattern

PFronizer400 | Posted in Patterns on

Hello, I am a new sewer looking for easy, beginner heirloom sewing projects ie,

pillows, pillowcases, placemats etc. I don’t think I am ready for the more complicated

projects. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks and Peace !

    Hi...I got my baptismal gown pattern at http://www.handmades.com

    They have a contact email address where you can ask about easy heirloom patterns. I was happy with the quick service and the care that they took when they packaged my purchase.

        I was just browsing through old messages and came across your request for heirloom pattern sources.  How did you do with that?  I know lindamaries recommended a company and I wondered if you've tried any of them and if you liked them.      rjf

          Hi - Thanks for your note. I have been out of town and have not had a chance to get to do much with this site as I am finishing up an heirloom apron that I found in a pattern book that I searched on line. It's called Heirloom Sewing for Today by Sandy Hunter. I got it thru the half.com ( it's a reduced price store thru e-bay). I learned a lot from the book and am just finishing up the apron and it turned out real nice, if I must say so myself --- pleats and all ! I did go to the Handmades website and I will get back to it for sure as it looks real nice. I want to read the message boards as I learn a lot about fabrics etc. from the boards. Shirley

          PS Even though I got the book at a reduced price, it looks brand new --
