I'm a Farbenmix Fanatic

You know this though, don't you?

This unassuming accordion file holds my collection


So what's in there?
El Porto
SommerLiebe (ebook)
Tamara Totebag (ebook)

I don't have everything because I won't buy a pattern unless I think I will make it (ETA I have not made every single one, but have every intention of getting around to it!).  Some I've made lots like Olivia, Antonia, Redondo, Quiara, Imke, Jule.  And there are some that I've only made once or twice, but will definitely make again.   Looking through this list, I'm seeing patterns and fabric ideas are popping into my head.

So I want to share the Farbenmix love.  I'm giving away one Farbenmix (including Studio Tantrum) pattern of your choice from Crafty Mamas.  I think Lisa has one of the best selections of Farbenmix outside of Germany, so I'm sure you can find something that you'd like.   I'm happy to shout postage to anywhere in the world.

Giveaway closes midnight Saturday, August 28.   Just leave a comment for a chance to win.  I'll post the winner on Sunday the 29th if I am not awake late on Saturday evening.  I'm usually awake that late unless I've had a few glasses of wine with dinner!

Are you sure you don't have all the Farbenmix patterns?? That is quite a list - I am impressed!

cherie said...

Wow! Your list kept going and going..... I'm new to sewing and farbenmix so thanks for sharing the names of the patterns you make the most. I love your rainbow dyed fabric - it's amazing!

Anita said...

I have wanted to try out a Farbenmix pattern. Their design is so unique. They must be pretty good based on your impressive list.

Vic said...

A Farbenmix FIEND more like! Where would you be without your "little" stash I wonder? Breaking into cars that look like they might be harbouring a travelling sewing stash perhaps....??

zofia said...

ok Sara, that is an IMPRESSIVE list. Bet you've made them all too!
Thanks for the generous giveaway :D

Wow Sara - that's a pretty impressive collection! And you've used all of them? I have a tendency to buy a pattern and often "sit" on it for a while.
Your sewing and dyeing is a great Farbenmix advertisement - I know you've inspired me to buy many patterns already :)

nerines said...

Way impressive collection!! Yes please count me in:)

Jen said...

Wow - that's quite the collection! I'm so totally envious. Every time I see pictures of your Farbenmix creations I say to myself "I want to do something like that!". These are great patterns but you do an amazing job bringing them to life.

Helen said...

Farbenmix should be paying YOU to promote their patterns ;)
that's a great collection!

Peta said...

If I didn't know what great patterns they are I'd be thinking you need an intervention! Very impressive.

Carolyn said...

WOW that is one long list. Do you have shares in the company?
I do agree though, Farbenmix patterns are worth buying!

pinkchook said...

Holy cow that is some list, obviously you belong to the if you find a good thing stick to it"" club.

Tonya said...

I think you're actually addicted to the patterns. I haven't actually made any of their patterns before. I know they have lots of great choices that my daughter would love.

Karen said...

Hi I'm Karen and I'm an addict!

Although Sara, you make me look like a novice addict....that is seriously the most impressive collection of Farb ever ever!!

Thanks for the chance :)


Claire said...

Liz said...

Wowsers! Amazing list Sara :) I need more hours of sewing time, so I can get more Farbs sewn up.

Penny said...

I'm not sure how I got to your blog tonight, it's my first time visiting and until this point I had never ever heard of Fabenmix (in fact I still feel a little dazed with it all) but I feel like my eyes have been opened up to a whole new world (or should that be a whole new addiction).

Cass said...

That's an impressive list of patterns! :)
I've blogged about your giveaway, just to share the love.

Tracy said...

I just found your blog as I was searching for the Amelie pattern! I have been iso of that pattern forever and I think crafty mamas is the only place that carries it outside of farbenmix! What a great list of patterns!

Kathryn said...

Sheesh! I thought I had a few! (I've been side-tracked by MAMU and Abracadabra recently...) Elodie is on my list of Must-Gets so that would be my choice if my number came up.

Clodagh a.k.a. Isra said...

Wow that is one impressive folder!

Lola Nova said...

Ooh, am I in time? I have pattern stash envy, yes I do. Having a hard time finding Elodie in the states.
I am impressed with your folder there! Very Organized.

Handmade homegrown said...

Impressive list Sara!!!
A farbenmix pattern for all occasions...
Thanks for the giveaway.
x Lis

naslin said...

Impressive yes, but you actually use them. Great giveaway Sara.

Lesley said...

Wow Sara, though I think I can give you a run for your money in another brand of pattern lol!! I would love a Feliz I think, I've been eyeing it off for ages, never enough hours in the day!

toadstooldots said...

Wow, seems you're a junkie ;-), but I would love to have all these patterns, okay at least a part of it and I buy for the same reasons as you.

Thanks for this generous giveaway so the winner can share your love and build their collection.

berniebabe said...

Lisa said...

Wow! That is one impressive list...and I thought I had a lot, lol.
