Kwik Sew patterns

When I saw that Kwik Sew has released some new patterns, I got excited to see what they had.  Well, upon glancing at their website, I was disappointed that there weren't any items I longed to sew.  You know what I mean?  That's how I usually decide on which patterns to buy--if there is a longing deep inside of me to make that particular item.

Now, sometimes, if I think a pattern is just ok, I will try it out when it goes on sale for 99 cents or 1.99.  But who am I kidding?  I buy all my patterns on sale!

Here are some patterns that I found were cute:


This is Kwik Sew 3833.  I love the cap and tie for a little boy, and the headband and purse with the fabric flower for a little girl.  Adorable!

If I were to make a winter coat, I would make Kwik Sew 3828, View B, shown in the lime green.  I love the asymmetric collar, and the oversized pocket!

Does anyone know if Kwik Sew patterns ever go on sale at Hancock Fabrics?  

BTW, I am still working on my fat quarter project (see here).  Thank you for your wonderful guesses!  I have been sewing every night since that post, and thought I would finish last night, but I couldn't find one of the pattern pieces!  I plan on sewing when the kids take a nap today, so I hope to post the mystery project by tomorrow.  

Stay sew-filled!

Hey Vanessa! I've heard that it is very rare for Kwik Sew patterns to go on sale. That coat pattern is pretty neat, though & Kwik Sew is known for it's easy to follow instructions. It may be worth paying full price for (I always buy my patterns on sale, too, but I did splurge for a Kwik Sew once)

As for the Kwik Sew 3833--there are too many tutorials online to make those items. I probably wouldn't buy that one. :)

Thanks for your comment Jenna!

It's too bad Kwik Sew doesn't ever go on sale...!

Maybe on the website?

I got this pattern at a local Ben Franklin store when they had moved it into a clearance bin. I think I only paid half the retail price. Am using it to make item for my grandtoddlers.

I just cut out the little purse tonight.

I agree that KS patterns are pricey and I will only buy them if I know I am likely to use them multiple times. I do like the quality of them.
