Maker Takeover New Pattern Releases

maker-pattern-takeover

We’ve got almost THIRTY patterns collected here for you this week! Most of them are BRAND NEW, with a few updated favorites included.

A couple of months ago, several of the Mad Mad Makers decided it would be awesomely fun to all release new patterns on the same day and then see how many spots on the Craftsy Leader board we could take over. We had a blast! Craftsy recently changed the look of their leader board, and you can’t see at a glance who the designer is now, so it might not be as much fun this time around, but we’re going to do it again anyway! AND we are including any platform on which Makers publish their patterns to be sure we get everyone included!

Here’s how YOU can get involved:

  • Follow the links to the patterns listed here,
  • give them a FB like, a comment,
  • Pin the ones you especially like,
  • copy the links to your favorites and post them on your own page
  • or create a little summary post to share with your friends and fans.
  • And be sure to save your favorites to your wish list!

We’ve got quite the collection of wonderful patterns here for you, I do believe there is something for everyone here. Enjoy!

So….Where to begin.  lol I have been quite busy the past few days and have been meaning to post things on here.  So what I am going to do is tell you about my busyness and then show you all kinds of new things!

Started out as a good week was getting things accomplished around the house laundry was going, dishes were being washed.  I then received a phone call from the school nurse informing me that I needed to come and get my son.  He had an accident and needed to go and get possibly a few stitches.  If you know my oldest, you know that this is totally out of the norm.  He has always been the one who doesn’t like to get dirty.  He is definitely not the risk taker.  He is afraid of heights and doesn’t like to rough house.  Took the babies next door to be watched so I could go and get #1 and take him to the doctor.  When I walked into the nurse’s office he was sitting there on the table and you could tell that he had been crying hard.  Thank goodness that the cut was not any worse than what it was.  It was really deep but very small.  Long story short.  We met the hubby at the urgent care close to where we live.  I tried not to tell #1 that he would have to have stitches because he hates being in pain.  He may be the oldest but he is the biggest baby out of all 3 of them. I wish that I would have video taped the procedure.  I could have submitted it to America’s Funniest Videos and possibly won!

Now onto some crafty stuff!  I recently posted on my Facebook page a question of what would everyone like to see next in the shop for crochet hooks.  I got many responses.  I chose one so far.  I plan on making more of the requests though in due time.  So here is what I have been working on lately.  Enjoy the show!

I loved this bag […]
