New for 2013! “Give-it-a-try” pricing on Wee Wonderfuls patterns

You know what I noticed when buying knitting patterns? If a project looked like something I knew I could do I am happy to spend the money on it. But, if I'm not sure, if it looks like it might be tricky or too time consuming, even though I'd love to make it, I pass. I was thinking toy-making is one of those things that most people don't know if they can do or would enjoy. It's sort of an odd amalgam of crafting skills – machine sewing, hand sewing, embroidery with a sort of sculpting element thrown in. That's why I like it so much because it's a little of everything. And I think lots of crafters enjoy it for that same reason but also they might pass it by for that reason too. So from now on, we're pricing all our patterns (cross stitch and embroidery too) at what I hope everyone will consider give-it-a-try prices. It's a new year, try a new craft! It's not too much of an investment if it turns out not to be your thing but I'm guessing most people will be as hooked as I was when I made my first toy 9 years ago… nothing like having a project smile back at you! 

And to make my life happier, we are now an all PDF shop! Except of course for wholesale, which anyone can order (in chunks of 5 or more) at the wholesale shop here.

Give it a try!

    I always read your blog on google reader and I didn’t know how awesome your banner is. It is killing me – I love it so much. I love your new prices as I have never made a doll and have been admiring yours and reading your blog since Oscar was very little. I actually remember the first post of your’s that I read – you had staggered pumpkins outside and I think they spelled something.
    So I finally bought your book a few months ago and really want to try to make a doll this year. Do you have one in your book that you recomend for someone new to dollmaking to try? I do sew clothes and quilts but I am not very confident about trying to do a doll.
    I am horrible at leaving comments so I am leaving a 3 paragraph one to make up for it. Thank you for all the inspiration.

    oh, too bad I already have almost all of these!
    I love your patterns and for anyone that does want to try making a doll, wee wonderful patterns are a great place to start. Every pattern I’ve tried has come together easily and looked amazing.

    This is awesome. I bought Kit, Chloe, Louise a few years ago to make one for my niece, and loved it. It was the most I’d ever spent on a pattern, and it was well worth it, but it would have been a lot easier to pull the trigger at the new price :) I’m glad more people will be tempted to try out your patterns! I will definitely buy another one when I have more time to sew!

    Kit, Chloe, & Louise has been on my wish list for a long while. I’ll definitely be purchasing at this new price! Thank you for your generosity! Love your book by the way, it’s one of my favorites in my small library. Your blog and sewing style is one of the reasons I started to sew myself. I’ve so enjoyed seeing your projects and reading your blog over the years. Thank you for the inspiration!

    Hi Christine,
    Nice to hear from you! I’d totally forgotten about those pumpkins. We did “Halloween” down our apartment stairs and our neighbor did “Happy” to go with it.
    Penny Patchwork in the book is pretty basic. She’s sort of like Olive or Archie but with yarn hair. The braids are pretty easy. You machine sew the hair together and then sew it to the stuffed doll. Goes fast that way!
    If you make anything, let me know how it goes :)
    take care,
    Hillary
