Dear <<First Name>>

We hope you have had a good July, full of crafting, and hope there will be lots to interest you in this month's email...
Offer of the Month
 
You will be sent a free pair of safety eyes and safety joints if you order the Amazing Craft Bear Making for Beginners pattern throughout August.   This new pattern (£6.99) makes a cute, fully jointed teddy bear and the comprehensive instructions guide you through the entire bear making process, even if you have never sewn a bear before. 

It is also a great pattern to preserve a sentimental fabric by making a Memory Bear
(Apologies but the offer applies only to the paper copy of the pattern and not the downloadable version)

Make of the month – July 16
 
It was an incredibly hard decision to choose from the many gorgeous creations this month but we hope Caroline from Swindon's bear 'Flo' will gain your admiration.  Flo is one of 6 bears that Caroline has made from our new Bear Making for Beginners pattern, each made from very different fabrics resulting in very different looking bears.   Well done Caroline!

If you fancy entering Make of the Month, simply post photos of your creations on our Facebook page (or email them to us) and a winner of a £5 web voucher will be chosen each month.

Tip of the month
If your creations are tiny toys or have long, thin pieces, you may find it fiddly holding the timy pieces of fabric in place when sewing them together.  This many help:-

After marking out your pattern, sew the fabric pieces together before cutting them out (by doubling your fabric).  It may use a little more fabric but it makes it a lot less fiddly if you are working with tiny pieces!  (Don’t forget to include your seam allowance when sewing!).

If you have a tip you would like to share with your fellow subscribers, email it to us at info@amazingcraft.co.uk and our favourite tip each month will win a £5 web voucher.

Kind regards
