{find a friend friday - link up! week 13}

Hi Everyone! Welcome back to week 13 of Find a Friend Friday. I can't believe it's been 13 weeks already. Alissa and I are so glad you're here visiting.

Today we are so excited to introduce you to our friends from Sew Sweet Patterns

1.Tell us about yourself and your blog.  
We are a mother/daughter team from South Orange County.  We specialize in sewing patterns for girls, boys and dolls.  We love be able to give beginner sewers some tools to help them along in their sewing journey!  Our blog allows us to reach out to our customers with tutorials, giveaways and to get know us a little bit along the way.  We are new to the whole blog world, but we are learning quickly!
2. Tell us a little about your shop.  
We sell handmade patterns for girls, boys and dolls that are geared for the beginner sewer.  Each pattern comes with a step-by-step tutorial with lots of clear photos, a sewing glossary and size chart.  We email patterns in PDF form and are always available to answer questions along the way!
3. How did your shop name come to be?  
Hum, guess it was just a brainstorm of ideas and Sew Sweet Patterns just stuck!  
4. What got you started with your craft,and selling your items?  
My mom had taught me to sew bean bags and things when I was little, but I really had no interest then.  However, when my daughter, Harper arrived I found myself wanting to re-learn.  So I picked up a store-bought pattern and headed home to attempt it.  After many tears and ripped seams, I called my mom and she brought me down some patterns she had been working on just for fun (she was loving having a granddaughter to sew for!).  With her clear instructions and easy steps, I was able to complete the dress!!  After making a few dresses from her patterns, we thought that we could combine her sewing and design skills with my computer knowledge  and  Sew Sweet Patterns began!
5. Favorite part of your day? 
 Oh, that is tough!  Obviously nap time is nice, but I do love our dance party lunches!
6. What food or food group would you refuse to live without?  

7. Where can we find you? 

Sew Sweet Patterns has offered to give all my followers at 10% discount! Yeowzers! You can use the code FRIEND when you check out.

Happy Linking. Party ends on Tuesday!
