Got a Whipup link about my Fabric Basket!

Click the graphic to go to Whipup for the best craft links!

I'm so excited. I submitted a link for the free fabric basket I designed to Whipup and got accepted!

Mine is the first link in the list! I've had a link to their site here at my blog since I first found it. They list so many great free projects and contests. I also keep their link on 'my yahoo' homepage so I know what's new there.

They're on Facebook now, too. I admit I very seldom go to facebook but I will add them to my likes.

Thanks so much Kathreen!

Artfire Store will be closing

Just a quick post to let you know that my Artfire store will be closing August 16, 2011. The owners have decided to charge a monthly fee of $9.95. I just don't sell enough there to pay that. It's not that well known of a site to charge that high of a fee. I would have been willing to pay what I do at etsy. That would make much more sense for a newer site without many customers.

I'm still at Etsy, Patternmart, Patternspot, Doll Maker's Journey, Cloth Doll Patterns, and soon I'll be listing Halloween dolls at ebay.

Web site update and a friend is having a free give away!

In case you missed my last post I designed these fabric baskets as a free PDF file! You can get the pattern by going to my previous post or going to either of my sites. My previous post will take you to to get the file but I uploaded the file to both of my web sites so you may prefer to go there. Go to my previous post to see the outside of the baskets. This pic shows how I filled them with shuttles and thread. Love these baskets! Right now I have one filled with crochet cotton I'm using to make a tote I came across at a site called craftsy. I saw a pic and knew I could duplicate it easily.

A blog I follow is having a give away. If you LOVE Halloween you have to go to her blog. Don't forget to check out the sites where she sells her creations, too!

Free PDF Pattern for Tatting Basket!

Here's a link to get my newest free pattern:

The link will take you to a folder I set up for free patterns. Right now this one is the only one there. Click on the pattern picture and it will take you to a page where you can download just that pattern.

Make a cloth basket to hold your tatting supplies. The large size is great if you use large shuttles like the ones by Tatsy while the smaller one is perfect for smaller shuttles. The pattern is full of color photos to make it easy to follow the directions.

Right now this is the only place you can get this pattern. I'll be listing it on my web sites later this week.
