To celebrate the launch of my patterns I wanted to create a free pattern so sewists can see how my patterns work and are laid out.
So I've created a simple pattern for an item I use a lot - a Hot Water Bottle Cover. In fact I'm sitting with one on my lap now, as the snow falls outside my window (we are skiing for the school holidays).
You can download the pattern from the left sidebar of my blog.
This is an item I've made a number of times. I feel the cold so I always like to have a hot water bottle handy.
This is a simple item to sew and satisfying when you want to tackle a small project that can be completed quickly. It's something I like to make when I don't have the energy for a whole quilt but want to play with mixing and matching fabrics. It's also a way to put an orphan quilt block to good use.
If you do happen to make a Hot Water Bottle Cover from this pattern, please post a photo in the Flickr Townmouse Patterns Group.
To my blog readers I'd also like to offer you a coupon code.
You can get 15% off any pattern purchases in my Etsy store before Sunday 12th July when you enter the code BLOG15 at checkout.
And stay tuned for a blog tour of my patterns. Remember yesterday I mentioned the group of lovely, supportive fellow bloggers and pattern designers? Well, they are going to share with you their version of a Townmouse garment in the next few weeks.
