Elegance & Elephants Bubble Shorts .PDF Giveaway!

posted in: Pattern Reviews, Sewing | 39

DIDN’T WIN?  That’s okay!  Elegance & Elephants aka E & E Patterns is also offering an exclusive 10% coupon code to EYMM followers.  Use code MAMAMADE until 6/5 to get 10% off your order in the E & E Pattern Shop.

I seriously never win anything so when a friend tagged me on Facebook because I won a free pattern from Elegance & Elephants I was over the moon.  Heidi is newer to the .pdf pattern designing market but she is starting out great, these bubble pocket shorts are super cute.  I LOVE the classic version made up in knit, they are the perfect play shorts and way better quality then the play shorts you find in stores.  Sailor shorts are all the rage right now & her sailor version is the perfect version for little girls & you could easily make them without the bubble pockets as well!

While I haven’t finished mine yet because I am backed up with other projects, I found the pattern to be well written & the quality of details in the work to be awesome.  When I told her I thought my readers would love them she offered to giveaway a .pdf copy of the pattern AND offer up a 10% code to her shop for any of my readers who didn’t win and wanted to purchase it.  If you check google images you can find pictures of lots of different ideas from others who have made them including this adorable outfit from Project Run & Play made using both her patterns!
