New Babushka Doll Pattern

Introducing my latest pattern: Medium Babuska Doll

This little cutie is now available for download from my Esty store.

She is so much fun to make! you can use whatever patch working fabrics you like and she's perfect for using up quilting scraps or sampling those fat 1/8s you just had to buy last week ! :)

As with all my patterns, I'm always here to help so message me if you have any questions.

My Crafternoon Creation

Now that birthday season is almost over for the year, I'm finally gaining a little crafternoon time for myself on a Sunday afternoon. The product of my afternoon craft therapy is the wonderful Willie Crow, complete with Beret and Woolen Scarf! (It's winter here in Australia now so I though nice warm accessories were in order ). He is such a happy little fellow and for that reason he has pride-of-place on my shelf so he can greet guests when they come to visit. I'm busting to make some feathery friends for him soon.

Potato Sack Panda

Here it is! My first ePattern! As a qualified pattern maker and graphic artist I have finally had time to create and finish my first Panda PDF pattern in between client work and Teaching.

I've designed this pattern so that it is easy enough for beginners and inspirational enough for those of you who know how to sew but want to try different materials and adding your own flare!

The pattern has been design for all; I have included all metric and empirical measurements and I have also created A4 and Letter sized PDFs to best suit your printer.

So often you buy a pattern and the copyright info states that you can only use it for personal use. With my patterns however, I want you to be able to make toys from my pattern and sell put the hard work into sewing it in the first place! The only catch is that if you are selling toys from my pattern, please include my blog, ESTY or email on your tag.

I also have a special offer for any teachers wishing to teach sewing classes to their students using this pattern so please email me if you're interested or know someone who would be.

I would just LOVE to see any photos of toys made from this pattern!

Now, that's enough talking. I've been away from the sewing machine far too long!

Until next time, HAPPY SEWING!
