support imagine gnats (and win!)
Since finding my sewing mojo, I keep thinking about attempting to sew some clothes for myself. Can I do it? I feel like I might just be able to! I've been drawn to some independent designers, and one of the patterns I like is from Rachael of Imagine Gnats. Those are her Bess tops up there. The pattern also can be made as a dress/tunic!
Right now, all of her patterns are in PDF format. And while I do love a PDF for it's instant gratification, there's something nice about paper patterns for their no-assembly ease. Which is why Rachael is currently seeking funding to do a print run. Here's a bit of information from Rachael:
imagine gnats started as a little etsy shop, selling small sewn items to help support my family and also to give me a creative outlet in a corporate world. it's come a long way in just five years... from a hobby to a full-time job. my love of sewing and design has grown as well, and now my own sewing patterns help and inspire others to create.
i am proud to have created patterns for garments that are easy to sew and easy to wear. imagine gnats patterns feature classic silhouettes with a modern twist that incorporate clever details and practical techniques
currently, my patterns are all offered as printable pdfs. the money raised on indiegogo will help cover the costs of an initial run of paper patterns, which means sharing my designs with even more sewists and inspiring more people.
for the cost of one pattern, you can help me reach my goal AND be one of the first to get the printed pattern of your choice. for a little bit more, you can get a full set of imagine gnats printed patterns. plus, early bird specials offer even better deals for the first contributors!
Could you help fund Imagine Gnats patterns? There are some sweet perks to helping, and if you hurry, you can still get a great deal on an early bird pattern pack!
Oh, and guess what! Rachael is giving away a free PDF pattern to a lucky Wild Olive reader! Enter below using Rafflecopter.

Thanks for the giveaway, Rachael, and thanks for making such lovely patterns! I can't wait to make myself something pretty!
