One of my favorite sewing “supplies” are my sewing patterns! I have close to 400 of them and they provide so much inspiration. I love looking at the vintage patterns for classic styles and I pull different pieces from this one and that one for the costumes I make. I thought it would be fun to make a tag video all about my patterns and share some of my favorites, most used, oldest, and many more. I’ve been wanting to make this video for several months and finally had a chance to sit down on the floor and drag out the pattern crates on camera.
A couple of years ago I shared a video showing EVERY pattern in my stash. I have purchased new patterns since then (and got rid of some as well), but the video is still a really good glimpse at my overall pattern stash. You can check it out HERE.
I’ve made a few other tag videos in the past. They are a fun way to get to know more about someone. You can find my favorite tag videos HERE.
I hope you enjoyed my pattern tag. I would love for you to do the tag yourself if you also have a sewing pattern stash. If you do make sure to use #ThePatternTag so I can find it. Until next time, Happy Sewing!
