Royal Wedding Party Printables – Purple Pumpkin Blog – These free printables for the Royal Wedding are of course customised to feature the wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle. But I do want them to have some longevity after the big day is over.

Pinteresting Strategies

Pinteresting Strategies - how I went from 0-200k page views with manual pinning

Pinteresting Strategies E-book comes highly recommended

Pinteresting Strategies by Carly Campbell

Carly has written a frank and concise little e-book, documenting how she grew her monthly page views to her blog from 0 to 200k, using manual Pinterest pinning methods.

And there is no Boardbooster or Tailwind in sight. Just manual pinning.

I was a little sceptical at first because everywhere you look in blogland, everyone and their dog is promoting Boardbooster or Tailwind. Buy a scheduler they all shout. It will increase your monthly viewer count and blog page views!

However, Carly explains in her e-book that sometimes using a scheduler can actually hinder your growth instead of increase it.

She knows this because she threw herself into learning everything she could about Pinterest and its algorithm. FYI. Her blog is only a year old and after just 7 months of launching it, she received 200k page views per month from Pinterest alone.

She reluctantly decided to write this e-book because there were already so many other books and courses on Pinterest pinning strategies and she felt that hers would just get lost among the rest.

She didn’t think it would sell. Ever.

But she was so totally wrong. In the first year she sold over 1500 copies!

Pinteresting Strategies - how I went from 0-200k page views using manual techniques

And she does not advertise.

All word of mouth.

She actually prefers NOT to hard-sell her e-book. So if you want it, you can get it here.

She is currently getting 20-30,000 page views PER DAY using her strategies mentioned in her e-book. This book is completely different to any other strategy available for sale elsewhere.

I can vouch for that too. I bought her e-book with the intention of just gaining more insight into the Pinterest back office, without realizing that it could seriously increase my blog traffic to new heights. And, although still slow, my blog is gaining new followers everyday, with an increase of viewers hitting over 10,000 as of a week ago. Although steady, my page views keep increasing. And when I don’t implement the strategy (as you can see before and after the 8th of May) my viewer stats are down! Coincidence? I think not.

Feed Our Life monthly page views directed from Pinterest

Viewer stats as of 08 May 2018 is 10,836

So, as you can see I am proof that her strategies are working in real life!

I am here to promote her book, maybe not by word of mouth, but by blogging it out there because I feel everyone should read it!! Stop wasting your cash on courses that all offer the same info or paying for information that you can find yourself for free.

This. Is. A. Book. Worth. Every. Little. Penny.

From me: “Thank you Carly! I love your e-book and hope to finish implementing, with earnest,  all the tips and tricks you have so painstakingly set out and continue to learn your Basic Pinning Technique (and have a bash at your advanced techniques)“.

If you would like to read buyer reviews of her book then click here.

If you have any Q’s please feel free to contact me. And if you enjoyed this post, then please follow me!

Until next time,

List of Free Embroidery Designs

List of Free Embroidery Designs / huge list of beautiful machine embroidery designs for free

Huge list of beautiful machine embroidery designs for free

List of Free Embroidery Designs – A compilation of 12 Designers with hundreds-of-thousands of FREE embroidery design patterns.

I have way too many machine embroidery designs saved on my laptop! I just love finding freebies, so I tend to sign up to extensive designers and companies offering free embroidery design patterns. Because I love my huge list of free embroidery designs, I thought I would share the same list with you! Enjoy…

Free Embroidery Designs – Sign up for free to gain access to 1000’s of free embroidery designs! They do, however, have a weekly limit to the free downloads. So you can download 3 per week for free with no purchase of anything, or 6/9 per week if you purchase other products. They offer weekly discounts and updates on their newest designs. I have saved literally hundreds of designs from their site over the years!

Embroidery Designs sample photo of designs (2)

Ann the Gran – this site is very similar to Free Embroidery Designs (above) and offers their designs on a pretty identical way too. 3 Free designs per week with no purchase of other designs or goods, then 6/9 per week if you buy goodies. They also offer a digitising service and lots of special offers and deals. They also sell embroidery software for the more adventurous embroiderer too.

Ann the Gran sample design.jpg

Ann the Gran digitsing prices.jpg

4-Hobby.com

Again, this is a site full of embroidery designs, and currently only has one page of freebies. However, what’s lovely about this site is that they offer an Affiliate Program, so any embroidery-mad sewers out there who want to promote their site, can do so and earn some $$$ while doing what they love!

4-Hobby.com sample free design.jpg

Sweet Pea

This is a colourful site with hundreds of stunning designs. There is a design for everyone at affordable prices! At the moment they (sadly) only have 3 freebies! Here is an example:

Sweet Pea sample design dragon 1

Sweet Pea sample designs other products.jpg

Artistic Thread Works

This site has over 30 000 designs and offers a Gold and Diamond Membership for die-hard embroidery fanatics. Sadly I don’t belong to any of their memberships but I do get regular FREE designs sent straight to my inbox on a weekly basis! These usually consist of a whole design set chosen from their archives which they are super cute and usable! These are recent ones sent to my email.

Artistic Threadworks sample freebie.jpg

Appliques with Character

Appliques with Character sample designs

This is one of the cutest sites I’ve found in a long time. It is based mainly on Disney characters and the embroidery designs are simply adorable! There aren’t many freebies, but seriously, the designs are cheap enough! There are designs for boys and girls of all ages! The creator has been sewing for over 10 years and loves embellishing her projects with Disney characters. She also offers a design service, so if you need something created specially, she will be happy to digitise for you. Her shop is worth browsing for sure!

Embroidery Online

Here you will find beautiful designs for FREE, along with designs for quilting, in the hoop, freestanding lace and OESD stabilizers. This site is a must. I have a stunning range of designs that I have collected over the years.  Just look at this simply gorgeous carousel horse design…which is FREE!

Embroiderers.com

Next we have tons of freebies on this site! And they are, again, beautiful. I’m beginning to sound like a ‘stuck record’! This site offers page after page of free designs for domestic use, as well as great prices for new and trending themes. They offer a digitising service as well. This is just one example of the type of free designs available here…

Sew a Family of Slippers

Sew a Family of Slippers!

Sew a Family of Slippers - www.feedourlife.blog.png

Years ago (not saying how many exactly!!) I used to be a contributor for a very well respected sewing magazine here in the UK called Sewing World. I was ever so proud of myself, coming up with these soft and cosy slippers and booties. So, if you want to sew slippers for your entire family…look no further.

DocFile (6).jpg

Take a look at the bottom of the cover, at the “family of slippers” image….that’s my contribution to this month’s publication. I created the entire article and designed the cute and cosy slippers for the whole family!

Sizes included in the pattern are: 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, junior 8-12, adult 5-8.

Make this adorable gingham pair for baby or teddy!

Cosy Toes Tutorial - Little red booties - www.feedourlife.blog

If you have a spare hour and want something cute to create with your scraps, make a pair or two of these adorable booties! For the rest of the family, we will call them ‘slippers’! Everyone will love them…from babies, to tots, to mums and dads, even grans and granddads too! I know it’s still early in the year, but it’s never too late to start thinking about handmade Christmas gifts. Or make them for your craft stall! The pattern is super easy and the tutorial is in step-by-step format and easy to follow.

Make a cute bunny pair!

Cosy Toes Tutorial - Bunny slippers - www.feedourlife.blog (2)

Because I own the copyright over the pattern for these booties, you can buy the pattern & tutorial, as it appeared in the magazine, direct from me here.

When printing off your pdf all-in-one tutorial & pattern, you will see that the pattern needs to be enlarged by 166% on a photocopier. You can do this by using a printer that allows you to make photocopies. Most printers allow you to make copies these days! You should be able to change the copy size before you copy them. Please check your individual printer settings before purchasing. 

Make an entire collection for the family!
