A new beginning…

pp circleIS NOW   white and black

Pattern Patti started out as an Etsy retailer and has evolved into a pattern designing company that sells out there in the world as well as Etsy. For some time, I have felt that the name Pattern Patti didn’t really represent what I want my pattern company to be. I want to encourage new sewers and teach some basic skills with sewing patterns for cool stuff.  The new name captures that vibe much better.

So, I’m pleased to introduce you to Schoolhouse Patterns. Sewing is Always in Session.


There is a new Facebook page, a new Twitter account, the new website  is in the works and the Etsy shop has had a makeover. Please check them out and like and follow to your heart’s content.

There is also a new mailing list for Schoolhouse Pattern News. You can sign up here. Please sign up so I can keep you in the know.

My guest post on Fat Quarterly

Hello all. Just wanted to be sure to send you all over to Fat Quarterly’s blog today. I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in the 12 Days of Ruby Star, show casing Melody Miller’s fantastic fabric lines, Ruby Star Rising and Ruby Star Shining. Each day, since the 12th of December and running until the 24th of December, Fat Quarterly has arranged designers to bring free patterns and tutorials to you, all using Ruby Star. Today, my All-Star Stocking sewing pattern in posted. The stocking is a tube sock inspired stocking in two sizes.

The smaller stocking is the perfect size for an iPod, gift card or candy. The candy in the picture was for my nephew who affectionately calls them ‘yim-a-yims’. Love it! The larger stocking will hold a paperback or other lovely stuffers.

The pattern sheet and instructions are over at Fat Quarterly for you! I love Melody’s fabrics and had a blast working with them.

Have fun!
