Welcome to my pattern shop! FooFoo Threads specializes in adorable little girl's PDF sewing patterns and ebooks. I love to see little girls dressed as what they are...little girls!

All of my designs were created with my own little girl in mind. She loves all things pretty, pink, ruffled and girly! I am trying to embrace these feminine design features while I still can. I also find inspiration for my designs all around me...the playground, storybooks, Disney movies, vintage clothing (especially dresses from the 40's and 50's) and old postcards, to name a few.

You are welcome to sell the finished garment that you create with my patterns, as long as you sew it yourself and out of your home. In other words, no mass production please!

PDF patterns are a bit different than most store bought patterns. In general PDF patterns often use "cutting charts" as opposed to actual pattern pieces for rectangular components. The reason for this is to save buyers the time and expense involved with printing, assembling, taping together and cutting out any more pages than are necessary to make the garment. For example, skirts, ruffles, and straps are usually cut from a cutting chart, with dimensions listed, as opposed to an actual pattern piece. Curved components are generally supplied as an actual printed pattern piece.
It is not necessary to own a rotary cutter and mat to cut the components, but many buyers find them quite convenient. I personally do NOT use a rotary cutter and mat, although I do own them.
The instructions that are included with most PDF patterns are often a lot more detailed than they are for store bought pattern....many beginners have learned to sew from PDF patterns!
Requirements to use PDF patterns: you will need a computer with Adobe Reader (available for free) in order to open and/or print the tutorial and any included pattern pieces. You will need a printer (preferably color but can be printed in gray scale if necessary) so you can print out any pattern pieces that are included. Pattern pieces are usually assembled by taping together the pages, then cutting them out as instructed by the tutorial. Some buyers print out the tutorial as well, but a lot more PDF pattern users these days are simply reading them directly off their laptop, tablet or even cell phones.
Please let me know if you have any questions!

Instant Download Patterns:
Most of my patterns are available by instant download. You will receive a link to download the pattern directly after your purchase. You can also download via your Etsy receipt or your purchases page. To go to your purchases page, click on "your account" at the upper right hand of the screen (the second icon from the right, directly to the left of the shopping cart) ...a drop down menu should appear. Just scroll down and click on "purchases and reviews." From there, scroll down your list of purchases to find the pattern you purchased, then click the download button for each file.

Free Patterns:
Please note that any free patterns associated with your purchase must be of equal or lesser value to the lowest priced pattern in your order. Any free patterns that may be applicable will be sent separately by way of a download link(s) sent to your email address within 48 hours (don't forget to check spam/junk mail). If you have not received your free pattern(s) within 48 hours, please let me know! Please note that the free patterns are NOT available as instant download.

Coupon Codes:
Every once in awhile Foofoo Threads has a sale and offers a special coupon code. Please note that in general coupons CANNOT be combined with pattern packs or any of the free pattern deals. Please see the sale details at the beginning of the shop announcement at the time of the sale for more details.

There are two ways you can save when you buy multiple patterns.
This is an easy way to purchase multiple patterns at one flat rate! Please note that when you buy a pattern pack, your patterns will NOT be instant download. Rather, the links to download will be sent within 24-48 hours to the email address you have on file with Etsy. Do not forget to check your spam/junk mail if they cannot be found in your inbox!! I usually send my orders out for the day after 10pm Pacific time, but sometimes, depending on my schedule for that day, this time can vary. If after 48 hours you still have not received your patterns, please let me know through the ETSY message system.
Also be aware that the pattern packs are to be used for single pattern listings and cannot be combined with any other special deals or promotions. For example, occasionally I might have a bundle deal in which two or more specific patterns are combined for one special price.....these bundle deals cannot be used as one of your choices for the pattern packs.
Here are the pattern pack prices:
3 pattern pack: $16
5 pattern pack:$24
7 pattern pack: $32
10 pattern pack: $40

If you want to purchase multiple patterns individually, you can still save about as much as you would with purchasing a pattern pack! Just add the specified number of patterns shown in parenthesis below to your cart, and specify the appropriate number of free ones (also shown below) in the "notes to seller" at check out. The purchased patterns are instant download while the links to download the free ones are sent separately within 24-48 hours to your email.
Buy 2 get 1 free (add 2 patterns to cart)
Buy 3 get 2 free (add 3 patterns to cart)
Buy 4 get 3 free (add 4 patterns to cart)
Buy 5 get 5 free (add 5 patterns to cart)

Free patterns and pattern packs are distributed to buyers by a Dropbox link. Once you have received your download link, just click on it and it should take you right to the Dropbox folder where you can then download your files. To download, click on each file individually, then click the download button at the upper right of the screen on the next page. Make sure to download both the tutorial and pattern pieces (if applicable). You do NOT need to join Dropbox to download your files. Make sure to save this link in case you need to download again. If your computer ever crashes and you lose your files, you can still access your pattern from the link (unfortunately, this does happen!)
If you would prefer to receive your pattern(s) as an email attachment, I would be happy to send it that way, just ask.
If you are having issues downloading your pattern through Dropbox or the Etsy instant download system, please let me know.
Please note that you will need Adobe Reader on your computer to open the PDF files.
I am always available for questions, should you get stuck at any point in one of the tutorials.
Thanks for stopping by!
