One Day In May ~ Pattern Catalogue

Needlework is one of those things that takes hold of your heart. Designing is like that too. I love to create and play with fabric and thread, and particularly enjoy discovering new ways to use commonly found products.
My aim is to produce a unique range of patterns that combine simple methods to give projects texture and dimension. One Day In May patterns feature full sized pattern sheets with detailed photographic and illustrated instruction.

Thank you for taking the time to browse through my projects.
All One Day In May patterns are available to order through your favourite local or online patchwork store. Please also refer to the stockist list on the left side of this blog (Available stock within specific stores can vary over time.)
If you are a store and would like to stock One Day In May patterns, please contact my distributor and printer, Pattern Press Australia.
