the whole new website! the whole new shop!

MADE Everyday site

I finally have a new website!!
And I need to use a lot of exclamation points about it!…because it’s been a while in the making.  And it feels so good to finally post about it today.   Websites, pattern making, book writing….all good things take longer than you think they’re going to take, to bring to pass.

But we’re finally here!
So let me show you around.

The website is now called MADE Everyday.
And it was designed by the ladies at October Ink, whom I love. They did such a fantastic/cool job.
I’m bringing the danamadeit + MADE Everyday brands together, so there’s no confusion on various platforms.  Of course you can still find me through  But if you type MADEEVERYDAY.COM in your browser once, it’ll just pop up every time you start typing (or every time you simply think about it?  Haah. Maybe we can create mind-reading software)

MADE Everyday with Dana website

There are all sorts of new features on the site.
I love the top sliders, sharing some of my favorite posts.  Just hit the arrows to scroll through, and hover over to read more.

The tutorials page underwent a big makeover (and is still a work in progress).  But I love how clean and organized it is.  Just click on a category for specifics, or just stay on ALL!

MADE Everyday Tutorials page

Check out all the other tabs on the navigation bar at the top.  Sign up for our newsletter in the right-hand column!  Or sign-up for email subscription.

And then click the blue button that takes you to the SHOP (which turns green to take you back to the BLOG).
This is one of my favorite parts of the whole makeover.  I finally have a legitimate shop!….not sure why that took me so long.

MADE Everyday First Day Dress

I haven’t added any new items yet, but I will be in the next month since I’m working on a kids’ sweatshirt pattern right now!  I also plan to have some printable artwork in the coming months as well.

More shop news: You can pay with CREDIT CARDS now…not just Paypal.

MADE Everyday Anywhere Skirt

And, well.
I’ll let you check out the rest.
Come click around and stay for a bit!  I’ve got chocolate marshmallow cake and video projects just waiting for you…..

Thanks for sticking with us all these years!

    Ooooo, am I the first comment??!! Yay! Love the new site, I’ve been following your blog for quite a few years now, in fact it’s your kid pants and (multiple) skirt tutorials that got me in to sewing for my kids…and now I’m about to embark on making it a business (also inspired by you and some other lovely ladies in the blogosphere!). I’m really looking forward to seeing your new pattern ????

    Been a fan of your site for years and years. Love the new design! Never purchased the patterns because I didn’t want to use PayPal. Now I can finally buy the first day dress and shorts patterns I have been salivating over for some time. Yippee!

    Yay! Looks fantastic! Congrats!

  22. 29) Eline @ Emmy + LIEN

    It looks really great! And of course you should use lots of exclamations marks – these things take a huge amount of work!!! Seriously though, I’m pleased for you and it’s great news for sewers too. I’ve tried some of your patterns for my little boy and they’ve always come up trumps, so I look forward to seeing more on this shiny new space.
