For no other reason then I like it.
Having a long unusual first name myself I am drawn to such names that can be shortened into cute nicknames, either with a masculine edge or the other direction so fluffy and girly.
My given name is Michaelene. My immediate family calls me Mike. It wasn’t until Paul entered my life and I began to work in an office setting that the nickname Mickey was born.
So when I think of an odd name I like I think of Winifred. Either Freddie or Winnie for nicknames!
Ok that was a strange reason to name July Winnie I concur but well it’s the truth. LOL.
And isn’t she a dynamo. I love using neutrals in those 50/50 hexies to give an illusion of openness like a snowflake or doily.
As always you can find the free PDF pattern for Winnie on my sidebar.
Now in the next few weeks I will be unveiling a brand new website. We haven’t decided to keep the side bar on the blog which will be embedded into the website or go with a separate page of PDF patterns. So don’t fret if the bar goes away…the patterns never will.
p.s. A big Thank You to Maggie my wonderful stunt sewer for this sample of Winnie!
