What’s Happening This Week at YCMT

Monday, September 27th, 2010

I wanted to create a VERY “quick-and-easy-to-make-even-if-you’re-a-beginner” kind of Halloween pattern, so here is “Just a Little Something for a Happy Halloween!”  You can receive it for free with any $15 purchase at  Offer expires 9/30/10.

There is no need to “add to cart”.  The pattern will automatically be added when your order is $15 or more.  Also, if you’re looking to make a “Fall” theme with this pattern, simply leave off the spiders and create in a brown/blue/orange combo. It will be beautiful!
