You see, a couple months ago we sent out some emails to talented and amazing sewing bloggers and asked them if they would be on board with sewing up some “ugly” patterns with us. Then, we went through our pattern stashes, pulled out some really ugly patterns and sent them off to those adventurous sew-ers that wanted to join in on our crazy idea of a series.
Now every day for the next two weeks you will get to see the masterful magic that these ladies pulled out with some “bad cover shot” patterns. It’s going to be so much fun!!!!
We seriously can’t wait.
We need you all too. We want to see your “ugly duckling” patterns. We even have some prizes for the ugliest pattern. (Who would have ever thought that we would be giving away prizes for that?)
See….we told you it was going to be fun! Who celebrates ugly? Um….we do, because we know that there are swans in there!!!
So, start digging through your vintage pattern stashes, your mother’s stashes, or even grandma’s attic to find some “ugly ducklings” and link them up below.
We will be featuring some of them throughout the series and then crowing a winner of the “Simple Simon’s First-Ever-Ugly-Pattern-Contest.”
Please limit it to vintage ugly patterns (the 90′s are a great start). We are certainly not here to offend someone’s recent work ;)
After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder…..
(Oh—and just to clarify: You only need to link up a photo of the pattern cover, you DON’T need to sew up the pattern! Can’t wait to see what you all have lurking in your stashes!)
