I so enjoyed opening this parcel. The pattern is beautifully packaged, printed and the instructions easy to understand - I especially liked the cotton sample enclosed.

Great pattern, surprisingly comfy considering they're not made from stretch fabrics!

Welcome to The Makers' Journal!

I design original clothing and accessory patterns for both women and girls. I like to design things which express a sense of joy and freedom; they are both youthful and confident.

My PAPER PATTERNS are printed onto a beautiful 100% recycled paper and include step by step instructions, diagrams and a swatch of fabric to use as a guide when selecting your fabric.

The quality of my finished patterns is very important to me and as such i do not use a photocopier. To minimize the impact of my business on our precious world all of my patterns are printed to order and each is an original, I do not carry any stock. Once printed I then fold and pack the pattern into a plastic envelope which is heat sealed to ensure it arrives safely. This envelope is tough enough to last for the life of your pattern.

All orders are sent via Australia Post using a heavy weight recyclable bag.
