Sew Grateful Pattern Winners

 Here are the winners of the patterns. Since I couldn't find the slingshot (I hate it when we clean up) I had to use a different method to determine a winner when there was more than one person requested a pattern. If only one person asked, they got it; when there were multiple entries (Butterick 4018 and McCalls 9361) I wrote the entrants names on a piece of paper and did Itsy, Bitsy Spider to decide.


 McCall's 8770 goes to Phillipa . She has the most beautiful pair of knit gloves in her lastest post. And it hadn't occurred to me to have someone else knit my stuff, since I am so dreadfully slow. Well, it had, but I wasn't sure who I could get to do it. I will have to look into it. Thank you for the tip.

To Meriwether goes the McCall's trousers. Unfortunately, Meriwether didn't leave any contact details. If anyone knows her, could you ask her to drop me a line with her mailing address?

McCall's 9361 was, by far, the most popular item. I hadn't looked that closely at it until Jackie mentioned the princess seams. And sonofagun, it does have princess seams. I wonder if I have time to trace, I doubt wrap dresses do well on bicycles. Maryall, this is going to be heading to you. Maryall has a number of links to free patterns on her blog, and she looks so very elegant when she models her versions.

And Butterick 4018 goes to Rachel. Rachel knits, and spins, and sews. Am I the only one who didn't know Christchurch had an earthquake three years ago?  Rachel and an number of people she knows are still rebuilding.

Thank you all for entering. I have enjoyed finding new blogs to read and, as always, finding out about other little corners of the world.

Ladies, please check your my email so I can get your mailing address.

Take care!


  1. I am so happy to have this pattern! I think I will make both pieces so it's extra nice...and actually, I think I do know who Meriwether is! I've emailed her to let her know she's won a pattern and assuming it is the same person she should be in touch soon! Thank you once again!

  2. Thank YOU for taking the time to visit our blogs and to write these nice compliments! It really makes a difference!
