DESCRIPTION:

This PDF tutorial contains templates and instructions to create stitched bib style necklaces using small pieces of fabric. Inspired by the styles featured in 1940s make-do-and-mend leaflets produced during the wartime, the tutorial also includes instructions for rickrack flowers and tips for various stringing options. It derives its name from autumn windfall because it can be made from material scraps that might otherwise be destined for the bin. I have used autumnal fabrics for a sophisticated “country chic” look. The necklaces offer a way to pep up an outfit with a small piece of precious vintage or tweedy fabric and to buy into this season’s retro country look in a subtle but creative way.

There are endless options with this basic bib necklace template, which can also be made up in patchwork, quilting or summer weight fabrics for a completely different look. Try making them as inexpensive but unique gifts.

The Autumn Windfall Bib Necklace tutorial has 10 pages – 9 pages including lots of photographs, detailed step-by-step instructions, plus 1 page of full sized pattern templates which you must print on letter (A4) paper and cut out. All templates are actual size.

Important Copyright Information:

Although all of my patterns and books are covered by the copyright and patents act, I realise that several of my customers would like to be able to make a few items from my patterns to sell, so I have decided to allow it again, as long as they stick to the following rules:

* Make no more than 10 bags in a year to sell from any one Charlie’s Aunt pattern, and up to a MAXIMUM of 40 bags in total from a combination of any of my patterns in a year. Please don’t make any more than this – I have more than 20 different sewing patterns and it simply wouldn't be fair to buy 15 and make 10 of each, because you would be adopting my entire concept that way. If you intend to make any more than 40 in a year, this would be deemed a big business and would be totally against the rules. Please respect this!

* Write on each swing ticket and in all Etsy/online descriptions the following words: “This bag was made using a Charlie’s Aunt sewing pattern designed by Emma Brennan”. A link to my Etsy shop would also be greatly appreciated. Please don’t put your own designer labels in my designs – that isn’t fair!

* Please have the courtesy to drop me a line to ask if you can make the bags to sell. This way I can keep track of who’s doing what and I can hopefully persuade you to share photos of the bags you make on the Charlie’s Aunt Facebook site.

* All items for sale must be handmade by you. Contracting with others to mass produce Charlie’s Aunt designs is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

* Distribution of the pattern pieces and corresponding instructions is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Please do not copy my patterns in any way. The words, diagrams and pictures are covered by copyright and I will pursue anyone who infringes this.

* Finally, please be respectful my designs and policies. Being allowed to make a limited number of bags from my patterns to sell is a privilege and not a right.

PDF PATTERNS:

The PDF patterns contain instructions, illustrations, photographs and pattern templates for one style of bag, purse or fashion accessory. The templates are full size and can be printed on A4 paper, but some templates need to be joined together with tape because they are too big to fit on one page. All patterns contain detailed instructions on how to cut and join pattern templates.
