    I love your site! I live in Seattle and was wondering if you teach sewing classes. I took some like 15 years ago and I’m a little intimidated.

    I too just found your site; I teach sewing to immigrants and am always looking for long, modest dresses for my ladies. thanks for the
    instructions using multiple patterns; this will come in helpful when trying to alter some ‘modern’ dresses with more traditional necklines and sleeves. look forward to more of your blog.

      Thanks for your question, I made my own and didn’t offer one, Then that way everyone can run with their creative spirit and make their own! Luckily, for those who are not comfortable with that, they can search online the following: “pineapple, black and white clipart, free”. Click on the “image” tab of the Search Results page and you will have more than enough pineapples at your finger tips!
      Hope this is helpful Merilyn!! xoxo

      Velda, thank you so much for your comment! Make sure you are logged into design space on your desktop, custom patterns in Design Space do not seem to work on mobile devices. I hope this is helpful! xo

    The Instagram video for the blanket scarf goes waaay too fast for me to follow even after watching it numerous times and I don’t get audio with it. Is thete a normal speed version available?

      Great question, it’s a very old, filmed at high speed video with no sound and made when I first started blogging. I will need to look into creating a NEW video. Thank you so much for your comment and feedback Diane! xo
