Cotton Life no.4


Cotton Life no.4 includes two of my patterns: Winter Wonderland Candlemat and 'Tis the Season wall-hanging! There are photos for each step of every project so it very easy to follow even if you do not read Chinese. All measurements are in centimetres and includes full-size templates. Each issue includes 28-32 projects including accessories, clothing, housewares, bags, quilts and much more!



I was really happy with how both of these projects turned out :o) Here is a closer look at 'Tis the Season wall-hanging...





And a closer look at Winter Wonderland candlemat...





Cotton Life no.4 is now in my SHOP! Get yourself a copy and have fun sewing these and many more wonderful projects for next Christmas!

Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)

I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE these two projects and want the patterns! Unfortunately I'm just not willing to pay the $18 for shipping to the U.S. :(

I'm hoping someday maybe you'll offer them as pdf's? PLEASE???

It's just awesome. What I like in all your projects - the details. Everything is on its place, Tiny things that make a complete breathtaking ensemble. It's just impossible to leave your blog without any comment.

Hello Laurraine! It's been some time since the last news! I assume you've been crazy with work, and you know I'm crazy with work and baby as well...Hope everything else is great, you know I feel proud when I see my friends' work properly recognized!!
Love,
Pat.

Wies said...

Hi I really love the magazine and would like to buy it, but...the magazine costs 11 Euro, sending it to me 29 Euro, so I pay over 40 Euro for one magazine....Incredible, and such a pity as I like the two things you showed me so much

It seems very nice and very different color you used here. This blue color is such a fantastic.

Sewandthecity said...

I have been visiting your blog for a while and I think you make amazing things! I have already made my own labels using your tutorial and also have just made a soft ball similar to the one you made for Sew Mama Sew. I have posted a link to this tutorial on my blow. Thanks for the great tip to cut on the bias; it really makes a big difference.

Lisa said...

I am wanting to purchase Cotton LIfe No 4 and 5 are these available. I have tried to leave a message on your Cartel shop but it will not allow me to. I entered the SPAM letters in numerous times... I look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards

Lisa
