Frequently Asked Questions
How can I contact you?
Hey! If you’re a real person with a real question, feel free to email me at [email protected]
Do you work with sponsors?
I do! When I love a brand and it’s a great fit for my site, I am happy to work with sponsors on sponsored posts or as a brand ambassador. Shoot me an email if you think your brand is a good fit!
I do not sell links, and I am not currently accepting sidebar ads.
Do you accept guest posts?
Generally, no. I do not publish any “guest” posts written by sponsors/companies promoting their own product. I also don’t participate in link exchanges or sell links.
If you are a blogger and would like to guest post on my blog, please email me a finished photo of the item/recipe/etc. that you would feature in your guest post (not an example of a similar post). If I love it, I’ll contact you. I do occasionally pay for high quality guest posts.
Your women’s patterns come in size Large. What does that mean?
My patterns are made to fit me, and I usually wear a large in ready-to-wear clothes, so that’s what I call my patterns. For your reference, my bust measurement is 38 inches, and all my tee patterns have a pretty relaxed fit in the waist/hips.
Do your patterns come in other sizes?
No, sorry! The only multi-size pattern I have on the blog is the Play All Day girls’ dress, which was made to give people options to sew for charity. Other than that, all patterns are created in my own size (or my daughter’s size) only. I’m sorry! I know that can be frustrating, but it allows me to offer all patterns for free.
Is seam allowance included on your patterns?
Yes! Half an inch seam allowance is included on all my patterns.
Can I use your patterns to make items to sell?
It depends on who you are, If you are a home sewist, the answer is: absolutely! If you want to make princess aprons or teddy bear sleeping bags from my patterns and sell them at a local craft fair or to family and friends, then go for it! If you are an Etsy seller, you should be developing your own patterns. If you are a company, you may not use my patterns to produce items to sell.
In any case, you may not re-distribute any of my patterns or printables in any way. If you’d like to share a pattern or printable with a friend, please direct your friend to my site to download it herself. Thanks!
Can I use one of your photos in a round-up?
Sure! You are welcome to use one photo along with a short description if you directly link back to the post the photo came from. You may not use one of my collage images or multiple photos, and you may not copy and paste any portion of my posts.
Can I substitute [xxxx] for [yyyy] in one of your recipes and will it work?
Honestly, I don’t know! I don’t do a lot of substituting in recipes, so I don’t know what will happen if you do. If you try something out, I’d love for you to let me know how it goes in the comments.
What does T and t mean on some of your recipe cards?
Capital T stands for tablespoon and lowercase t stands for teaspoon.
