On Friday (May 1st, 2015) we'll have a special DOUBLE Freebie Friday offer! It's summertime fun on Pixie Faire! Here are the details,
First, we are thrilled to announce the launch of a new furniture focused brand by Kristin Rutten the designer behind Matilda's Closet. Many of you have admired the doll sized furniture you've seen in stores and online and now you'll be able to make it! Her new furniture focused brand is AptOne8 and she is launching her first pattern as permanently free!
More About Kristin and AptOne8 (In Her Own Words): "Designing and selling patterns and projects for doll enthusiasts combines several of my interests and talents. It also allows me to pursue another mission important to me – empowering young girls, starting with my own two daughters, to pursue their dreams and become strong, self-confident, successful and happy young women. It’s this goal which guides every pattern and project I design, from the true-to-life doll-sized baseball uniform to the PVC project that encourages you and your daughters to venture into a hardware store (maybe even for the first time) and build something special and unique that fuels the imagination. I hope you enjoy this new pattern!"
More About The Basic Beach Chair Pattern: Your doll will be ready to hit the beach with this quick and easy chair made from PVC pipe! Easy enough for beginners, this PDF project download includes step-by-step photo instructions to help you first build the PVC chair frame using readily available tools, and then stitch up a two-piece, reversible chair seat that slides right onto the frame. You'll also be thrilled to know this new pattern will be permanently free - so be sure to tell a friend, blog about it, and spread the word.
