Remember how I planted six patterns in secret locations around the Isle of Wight, in the Pattern Trail? I thought it was time for an update!
A couple of hours after the blog post went live I received an email from a reader with the subject line ‘Found one!’ I could hardly believe it. This had been one of my most hidden patterns – I wasn’t even sure anyone would track it down at the Botanical Gardens.
Cath had. Kudos for determination (and interrupting her holiday). She was now the proud owner of the Ultimate Shift Dress pattern from Sew Over It. Above, you can see her with the pattern and her beautiful children. They’re all wearing hand sewn items!
Since then? Thundering silence. Nada. Zilch. Does this mean that five other sewing patterns have been left to gather dust and damp? Or has someone else found stitching treasure?
Do you know or are you a successful trekker of the Pattern Trail? Let’s spread the word, people! If you’ve randomly discovered a sewing pattern hidden on the Isle of Wight, let me know. You’d make my day!
