Welcome to Tie Dye Diva Patterns! My shop home page showing all my items for sale is here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/tiedyediva

My name is Jen, I am a long-time sewing addict, hand-dyer and collector of crafty hobbies. I opened my etsy shop in 2007 selling my hand-dyed items, hence the now-misleading name. The same year, I began selling my PDF sewing patterns. They all include full color photos, computer-drafted diagrams and high quality, computer-drawn pattern pieces (with the exception of large rectangles such as skirt pieces, which are provided as cutting measurements to save you ink and paper). I spend hours on every pattern, testing, checking sizing against standard industry size charts, and providing quality photos and diagrams. All this in between caring for and cuddling my 3 wonderful kids. I do hope you enjoy my patterns, it makes me so happy to share my passion for sewing with you…
