Our First Pattern!

I mentioned a while back that we would have some exciting news to share. And we've been oh-so-busy working on this project :)

It all started when we had a request from a sweet customer (Lori), wondering if we would ever offer a pattern for our oven mitt. Country Mouse and I had talked about several ideas for a pattern but it just simply had not made it to the top of our priority list. That is until we heard from Lori.
We sprung into action putting our instructions and photos together.

We just needed the skills of a graphic designer to help us with the finishing touches. Our dear etsy friend Whitney of Whisker Graphics created a dreamy layout while we struggled with a name. Just when we were about to settle on one, Whitney emailed us with a suggestion from her daughter and it was perfect...drumroll...Please welcome the very first City Chic Country Mouse PDF sewing pattern: Sew Hot Oven Mitt!

Just in time for you to start sewing your holiday gifts (yes, it's that time already!) This is a fun pattern for a beginning-sewer as well as advanced. There are a few options for extra creativity (like adding an applique or yo-yo). 6 color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and color photos to guide you through making your oven mitt.

It will be emailed to you within 24 hours and you can start sewing immediately! No waiting for the mail. And the other thing we really like about this pattern is that it takes a small amount of fabric - just two fat quarters! If you are like us, you probably have tons of fat quarters lying around just waiting to be made into something beautiful.

You can find the Sew Hot Oven Mitt pattern for sale in our shop now. Happy Sewing!

    Whitney :)
