Bella Sunshine Designs is Turning ONE! - Birthday Blog Tour - Day 1

Birthday Blog Tour 2016-01

Bella Sunshine Designs is Turning 1!

It was a year ago this week that our very first pattern, the Bow Tie Leggings & Shorts was released.  As a pattern designer, I'm a numbers girl. Math is kinda my thing. Let's look at everything that Bella Sunshine Designs has done since then by the numbers:

  • We've released 11 patterns our first year.
  • We've written 44 blog posts.
  • Our Facebook Group has grown to over 2,000 members. Can you help us break that barrier today? Join our group if you aren't already there!
  • Our site sees on average 4,200 site visitors a day (with over 155,000 page views a month).
  • Our average monthly viewers on Pinterest is over 1.5 MILLION.  Yes, that's 1,500,000+. Be sure to follow us to see all our great pins.
In just a short time period, our business has exploded! That is only because we have such wonderful and loyal customers that have supported us along the way. Because of you guys, we want to celebrate!

What's a party without friends? That's why we have 15 bloggers that have all joined together to help us celebrate! We love to show off how versatile our patterns are. It's amazing to see someone to take out blueprints, get creative and make something great. That's why the theme of this blog tour is to hack the pattern. Each blogger took their favorite BSD pattern, and changed it someway to make it awesome.

First up today is Pattern Revolution...


Pattern Revolution has always been a big supporter of BSD.  In fact, our second ever released pattern, the Holiday Cutout Dress & Top was featured on their website as part of the AD Challenge. This time Pattern Revolution took FIVE of our patterns and mashed them. Check out their blog to see how the Adaline Dress, the Holiday Cutout Dress, the Rebel Girl Party Dress, Kelly's Twirly Skirt, and the Bow Tie Leggings all came together to make one great outfit.

And Some Gabriella Hacks


Next we have Magna from House of Estrela. She hacked our Gabriella's Winter Coat for her daughter who happens to be named Gabriela (with one "L" only.) Sounds like that pattern was made for her! Check out her post to see what she did!



Our last stop for the day is Heather from Pleats & Ruffles.  She also made up an awesome version of our Gabriella's Winter Coat.
