Your eyes do not deceive you my friends, Karen's Pattern Pyramid which launched on Did you make that? back in June 2012 is still going strong...and you stand a chance of winning! How's that for a 'Happy New Year' wish from me to you?!?
I won my loot from the lovely Erin of TwirlDesigns - this wonderful bundle has had quite the journey starting off in London and stopping off in Melbourne, Philadelphia, twice in Seattle, Wellington (NZ), Edinburgh, Montreal, Boston, Berkley (CA) and San Antonio (TX) before reaching me!
After I chose a pattern for myself, it still consisted of a substantial 20 patterns ranging from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and more recent. All are pictured below, apart from a modern bag pattern which I stupidly forgot to photograph I'm afraid!
I then added the below 4 patterns to the mix, meaning there's now a whopping 24 patterns up for grabs! McCall 7583 is from the late 40s / early 50s and McCall's 6328, Vogue 6715 and Pattern Practical 6229 are all from the 1960s.
The rules, as outlined by Karen, are pretty simple:
- Anyone, anywhere can enter this giveaway, BUT you must have an active blog.
- The winner gets to pick one pattern to keep for themselves and must then host their own giveaway.
- Although I don't think Karen directly stipulated this in the first place, it has become customary for winners to add more patterns to the mix...thus prolonging the Pattern Pyramid's lifespan!
- If you want the chance to become a part of this unique giveaway's history, just leave a comment below by midnight GMT Friday 10 January 2014 and I'll announce the lucky winner on Sunday 12 January 2014.
Oh, and in case you're curious as to which pattern I'm keeping for myself, I chose this little beauty! Thank you to the lovely person who contributed Butterick 2304!
