Pattern Pyramid (Plus Sized)

It was conceived in the mind of Karen from "Did You Make That"......


It traveled the world and grew bigger and bigger......

It has visited the homes of many a sewist.......


It has then been passed on to yet more sewists......

It has evolved..


It is now so big that is can not be contained

It's next incarnation is here...



Some of the patterns on offer - still have to dig out the rest


THE RULES (As copied - and slightly amended - from Did You Make That)
  • Anyone, anywhere can enter the giveaway by posting a comment below by midnight Sydney Australia Time Friday 18th January BUT you must have an active blog. (Reasons to become obvious.)
  • I will randomly select 3 winners.
  • I will post a selection of approximately 5 - 6 patterns to each winner.Each winner will pick one pattern to keep for themselves, then host their own giveaway. They will randomly select a winner, post the remaining patterns to that Person C. Person C will pick a pattern for themselves, host their own giveaway and post the remaining patterns to the winner, Person D. Person D will…
  • All patterns are in the plus size category - ie - if the pattern comes in 2 sizing groups, then it will be the larger category. Patterns to go up to at least go up to a size 20 (most go higher). Patterns listed as "all sizes" will include plus sizes.
  • If you wish to take more than one pattern you can replenish the stock with a pattern you no longer want - but please make sure it is in plus size range
You get the idea!


THE SMALL PRINT
  • We are taking it on trust that all pattern pieces are there
  • Your selection of patterns will be picked at random - please don’t contact me asking for specific patterns.
  • If you’re a winner, I would love it if you could make a small contribution to The Brooke. This is a charity close to the heart of Catherine, who so generously provided the original patterns. These plus sized patterns have been contributed by me in the spirit of the generosity of the sewing community
  • Please engage in a timely fashion, launching your own giveaways soon after receiving a parcel
  • You must be be happy to post patterns worldwide.
Spread the word - let it be known to all.

Let the fun begin


P.S. - To the winners from my blog anniversary give away - your prizes have now been posted and are winging their way to you.

  1. Oooh please count me in for the pattern pyramid! I really liked the idea of the original pattern pyramid but couldn't fit into any of the patterns on offer so this is a great idea!

  4. Hey count me in!

    Even if they aren't in my size (and go larger) my mom is fluffy and one of us can use them, and probably toss a few into the mix as well to add more to the pyramid.

  7. I would have loved to have taken part but sadly I only have a handful of patterns, some I haven't tried out yet. But what a brilliant idea for recycling the ones that didn't quite work out.

    1. Louise - the idea is you take one and pass the rest on. Only if you take more than one - or want to - do you need to replenish the stock.

  10. Great idea, I would love to participate. A lot of the pattern pyramids I didn't bother entering to win because none of the patterns would fit me.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh I love this idea! And would love to play. Even though I won in the original - nothing fit me and the pattern I kept had major pieces missing - so I added to the lot and sent it forward. How nice! g

    1. Sorry Quickie - I promise you it is not discrimination against the blogless - you need a blog to be able to host the giveaway if you win.

  20. Great idea. LOVE the pattern pyramid idea, but like a previous poster, wouldn't have been able to use any of the patterns. Now THIS is exactly what I need. thank you for starting this idea off.

    Also, thanks for the mention of my Creative Cate top. I saw your question on my blog but wasn't able to reply. I've been away on holidays with no Internet access! (the horror!) Your top looks gorgeous. I can't wait to get back to the sewing machine.
