This week I finished those Mucha patterns!! Belle, Meridia, and Rapunzel are ready to go and I'm just putting on the finishing touches to their "packages" (pattern, color symbols, special instructions, etc). A massive amount of thank yous to Hannah-Alexander
for letting me use her artwork and Mattsma
, and GraniteFire
for doing color checks and quality control for me.
From the beginning Hannah and I decided they would be limited edition (at her request) so that her artwork doesn't become mass produced. Unless Hannah replies to my note, there are 50 patterns available for each princess.
That means there's 50 Belle, 50 Meridia, and 50 Rapunzel. They are $20 each or $55 if you buy all three.
Hannah replied! Yay! I have been authorized to sell 50 as sets (for a total of 100 of each princess). However, this does mean, for example, that if all the individual Belle patterns sell that she will only be available through the set.(I accept PayPal only, but you don't need a PayPal account to pay with a credit card. Please see this link for instructions: www.etsy.com/help/article/361 All sales should be through my Etsy store www.etsy.com/shop/pinkythepink… but if you really really really for some reason hate Etsy we can do a private transaction through PayPal.)
Since most of you indicated on my poll that you prefer being able to preorder things this is your chance to do so! If you are for sure totally going to buy a pattern just comment here or drop me a note and I'll make sure your pattern is reserved special for you when they are ready to be put up for sale on Etsy, which will likely be within the next two weeks
Patterns will be numbered in true limited edition fashion and be delivered to you digitally. As they are .png images any computer should be able to open them and use them without needing any special software (such as pdf files). They will include (but not limited to) the pattern itself, the color codes, special stitching instructions, placement suggestion for all three together, and a preview image.
As there's no physical way I could stitch up all three of them as samples and make you all wait a year or two while they're finished you'll have to live with the digital preview that I can provide. Some day, most certainly, I will do all three and have them up, but I'm hoping that you guys will be able to finish them long before then!THESE ARE NOT BEGINNER PROJECTS BY ANY SENSE OF THE WORD.
Please, please, please... these are complicated pieces with blended colors, hundreds of beads, buttons, half/quarter/partial stitches everywhere, and literally over thirty feet of backstitching throughout. It's a labor of love that I hope you will share with me when you're finished.
Thank you for all your love and support during this project, I do hope you all enjoy stitching them as much as I have enjoyed making them! Hopefully these will be a great success and Hannah will allow me to do more princesses from the series. From my dedicated watchers who added me in 2010, thank you!
