Hi! Thanks for stopping by the Around the Bobbin retail shop.

Quality designs and instruction

It is really important to me to provide you with a high quality sewing experience so that you can sew these projects yourself with great results and a lot of fun!

When I design a pattern, I personally sew the item myself over and over again until I can practically sew them in my sleep! Why? Because an idea alone doesn’t make a great product. Each time I tweak the initial design, simplifying the steps and refining the shape of the design until I am satisfied with the end product AND the process along the way. 

The patterns are fully tested by others as well so that you can count on tried-and-true patterns. I hope that you will find the instructions easy to follow and the projects a lot of fun to sew!


Around the Bobbin accepts credit and debit cards as well as paypal (sorry, no e-checks) processed through paypal. You do not need a paypal account! Links to download the pattern(s) are provided after checkout.


Due to the nature of the product, I do not offer refunds on patterns.

If you are purchasing a downloadable pdf pattern, your computer must be able to download, open and print PDF files. I recommend downloading Adobe Reader, which is free and works great. If you are unsure about how to do this or need help opening the file, please contact me before purchase and I am happy to help.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about a pattern. I am happy to provide help!

For every pattern sold in this retail shop, 22 cents is donated to Feed My Starving Children, a nonprofit organization committed to feeding hungry children in which children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and FMSC ships the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. Why 22 cents? Each meal costs 22 cents to produce so each pattern sold provides a meal to a hungry child somewhere in the world.
