Oui! Le Beret est arrivé!

It was a sneaky one, I know. What with all the hoo-har about the new bag, I thought I'd fly this one under the radar a bit. Now it's finished and printed, thanks to some super-duper-troupers who slaved over the weekend to do some short-notice pattern-testing for me.

The beret comes in three sizes (fitting head sizes 54cm - 60cm) and includes instructions to alter the pattern for larger sizes. It has three crown styles for each size - shallow (below), medium (above) and deep (I can't beat Kirsty's photo!!!).


And it's.....

This new "Quick" line of patterns will be quick projects for basic sewing skills. I'll be retro-fitting the symbol to few patterns that fit into the category.
The beret pattern is now available HERE!
...
Edited to add: The new BAG pattern is going to print as we speak. It should be ready tomorrow. If you'd like to order both (new pattern is $21.95), just pop a note to that effect on the bottom of your beret order.

Ooh, you are a clever cookie. Not just because of the fab beret pattern, but because you are marketing in my attention deficient language. QUICK! You said?

If only I'd waited to place my order until this week ....!! This looks lovely but it will have to wait a while until I can justify another order from the other side of the world!!

Oh well!

Now I really could have done with one of them on my 'summer' holiday.

Great stuff - this will be very popular!

Oh yummy! Just wish I had the right shaped head to wear them (berets just look silly on me!). I tend to be a bucket hat person instead.

I forgot to mention on your leather sewing post the other day that if I'm sewing leather and really need to pin it then I use bulldog clips instead. Works a treat!
