Announcement   Hi! Thanks for stopping by my PDF sewing pattern shop! I create fun and useful sewing projects for grown ups and kids. Sewing is a great way to create gifts for your friends and family and I am here to help! My patterns are full of bright and clear pictures, easy instructions, and complete, full scale pattern pieces. All patterns are in PDF format and will be available for download as soon as your purchase is complete.

Why ginia18? That is simply the original name I choose for etsy when I first began shopping years ago! An etsy name sticks :). I use Gingercake as my "official" name as I have grown into a full pattern shop.

I have a blog now so stop over and see what I am creating ~ www.gingercake.org/gingercake

I have a section in this shop where you can buy items I have made from my patterns.

About

Sewing handmade is a gift for your loved one AND for you!

Hi! I am Virginia Lindsay, creator of Gingercake Patterns and the blog Gingercake. I started sewing again (like many of you!) when my kids were new and I was spending more time at home while they were napping and playing. I loved all the bright and beautiful fabrics available and I became addicted to searching for new projects all the time!

I eventually found myself with many ideas of my own and I loved the process of taking that idea and turning it into a perfected pattern. I wanted to create items that were useful and thoughtful for our busy lives. Since most of us already have an almost full schedule, a day spent sewing is such a treat and I wanted to create a line of patterns would be special for the sewer and the person she is sewing for.

I sew with a 20 year old machine my mom gave me when I was 15. On a whim, I told my mom that I wanted to sew my own clothes and she and I went to the fabric store and bought this old White. It wasn't top of the line and it wasn't the cheapest either. Although the clothes sewing didn't work out and the machine was left unused for about 15 years, it turns out to be one of the best gifts ever given to me since she had it waiting for me when I was ready to begin again! (Update- I finally upgraded my machine to a Janome DC2013 but I still love my old White!)

My favorite feedback from people who bought a Gingercake pattern is not only "we use this all the time!" but also, "I had so much fun making this!" We all know that we can buy something cute at the big box store, but creating a handmade gift is not only about who is getting the gift but about how much you enjoyed your time spent sewing.

Shop policies

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal.
Shipping
no shipping since you are purchasing a PDF document that will be sent directly to the email you have provided etsy.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please understand that this is a sewing pattern and not an actual made item. It is important to read the item description fully. It is a big hassle to cancel through etsy, refund through paypal and work to get all the fees I am charged in these instructions. I will not be issuing refunds for the mistakes by the buyers who think they are buying an actual sewn item any more. It simply takes too much time that I could be spending sewing and with my family. Sorry for any hard feelings this may cause.
