Long before I knew what a blog was, I constantly visited a craft site called Meggicat. In August of 2006 she suddenly quit writing new entries but I kept her site bookmarked and kept referring back to it now and then. I actually thought it was a regular web site but now I know what a blog is.
I’m happy to say that the Meggicat blog is back in action. Go over there and explore but you cannot get through all her fantastic posts in one day as she’s excellent at sharing links and ideas. Your inspiration mojo will be kicking in big time!
One of her site’s features is that she shares ideas found via expired patents from the U.S. Patent Office. I decided to try this myself. Here are a few things I found by just doing some random searching on Google Patent as Meggicat suggests. Right-click to enlarge and print.
Search term: Doll Pattern
Search term: Embroidery Design
Can't you just imagine the possibilities in this? Jump on over to Meggicat’s blog and play for awhile.
