Winter Peach

Vintage Flair Baby Loafers Pattern size newborn-2T
I love patterns.  Especially patterns made by real people.  (And definitely patterns that don't come in a folded mess of tissue paper that I will never be able to put back in that dumb little pouch.  Ugh.)  And, you know, it always helps if the patterns have cute cover pictures.  

Vintage Flair Flats Pattern women's size 5-11  | Psst!  All Winter Peach shoe patterns are FULLY LINED!  All seams enclosed!  Hooray!
But perhaps one of the most important aspects of a loveable pattern is clarity of instructions.  Having grown up sewing, taken multiple sewing classes in college, and working on projects almost daily, I can't tell you how many times I still get lost following the instructions on a manufactured pattern.  Seriously?  I usually abandon ship half way through and make up the rest... which isn't always a great idea.  So I love when I come across great patterns on Etsy.

Mary Jane Flats Pattern child size 8-12
Because knowing that the pattern was made by a real human being is a major plus for me.  Not to mention free shipping and instant gratification since it just comes e-mailed straight to you in a PDF, right?  So, so awesome.

It's a teddy bear, it's a backpack--it's the Buddy Pack!
