Vintage and new sewing patterns from Canada!

BonnielovesBitsy is taking a short break.

I am relocating to the UK on 11th October and my shop will be closed till I am settled. I hope to re-open in early December (or before).

BonnielovesBitsy's Shop Announcement

I add modern and vintage patterns everyday. Please keep checking back! If you are looking for something in particular and don't see it here, why not drop me a line? I have more than 100 patterns not listed yet.

I collect vintage and modern sewing patterns but am selling the ones which don't (and probably won't ever!) fit me. I ship from Beautiful BC, Canada, to all over the world!

All my reversible tote bags are handmade with love from me to you. I mostly choose bold, funky, colourful, whimsical, retro, humorous fabric prints, and oh yeah, you will always find a few cat-themed prints in my growing fabric stash! Read my About page to find out why...

I do all my sewing at home with my trusty Janome sewing machine (update xmas 2014: Santa brought me a Singer serger, wow!). Having fallen in love with sewing early in 2014 after taking a cushion-cover class one afternoon (at the fantastic The Makehouse in Victoria, BC, check them out), I have been teaching myself ever since. Just recently in October 2014, I returned to The Makehouse (because they are wonderful and lovely and have free tea) to take a dressmaking course and have started blogging about the things I sew here: All feedback appreciated!

My goal is to keep learning dressmaking and be able to do that for a living someday...perhaps making bespoke costumes for Beatle tribute bands...which brings me to my other passion in life, the music of The Beatles! I even have an Etsy store dedicated to handmade goods inspired by them and other 60s/70s groups, check out for my uniquely designed screenprinted t-shirts and canvas totes which you won't find anywhere else.
