Affiliate Disclosure

This site sometimes uses affiliate links.

Affiliate links are a type of link that specifies that I sent you to that website (it'll have some extra letters/numbers/punctuation marks that a regular link doesn't have). If you use my link to get to the site and then you make a purchase I'll get a little something back (sometimes cash, sometimes credit to spend on my own purchases on that site) at no additional cost to you.

I use affiliate links to link to my own products (for example, my patterns on, supplies I have purchased and used to make projects you see in blog posts, or easily available alternatives to things I've purchased in brick & mortar stores. I only link to products and sites that I would purchase from myself. Nothing sketchy.
