Stuffed Fabric Turtles (with pattern pieces

Stuffed Fabric Turtles (with pattern pieces
We were shopping around, down in Florida, after we went to the zoo several weeks ago (yes, in Jacksonville…..some of you asked)……..and we stopped by a Pottery Barn Kids store. I’m a window shopper. Well, and an inspiration-seeker shopper. I love walking around and daring myself to find something I want to make. Ha. Want to go shopping with me? I might drive you crazy. Then you and my husband will have something in common. While we were there…..we saw some cute little stuffed turtles. So I snapped a picture with my phone, and I decided to try and figure it out at home. So, here’s my version…..a bit different, but just as sweet. They are soft and plump and are perfect for little hands. …..and the tail may be my favorite part. After making one, you better let your turtle explore outside. Would you like to make your own? Turtle pattern pieces found here. Cut out all of your turtle pieces, in whatever fabric and color choices you want. Then sew each piece closed, about a 1/4 inch from the end. Enjoy.

Teddy Taggie Blanket Alice is almost 5 months old. Just the age when they start stuffing everything into their mouths. So I made her a taggie blanket with a soft minky backing and a crinkle layer in the middle, and attached some plastic rings for her to munch on. She is slightly obsessed with it! For the blanket: - The pattern (download it as a PDF and print to A4) - Fabric for the front, 10"x12" - Minky for the back, 10"x12" - An oven roasting bag (if you want a layer in the middle to make that cool crinkly sound that babies go nuts for), cut a 10"x12" piece.

DIY Typographic String Art Man Made DIY, is one of my favourite craft/DIY blog and they posted this tutorial. Which I am in love with! Its a very modern twist on the popular 7os trend of string art. It’s very simple to make, and looks amazing! 5147 Color dress Difficulty: * You will need: silk or viscose; lining; 1 invisible zipper (about 60 cm (24")). Attention!

When sewing the garment, pay attention to notches- they must coincide.

Matryoshka Doll Tutorial After all the fun I had making my matryoshka style dolls a couple of weeks ago I thought it would be mean not to spread the fun a little. So I am going to do my first ever tutorial and try to share with you how to make one! I have tried to be nice and clear, use lots of pictures and not to over-explain things (as I have a tendency to do) but do let me know if anything can be improved. When I was first starting out with mosaics and sewing and crochet I was desperate for free simple tutorials that made sense so constructive criticism will be most welcome and I promise not to sulk ;) Right, lets get started…

felt monsters My four-year-old and I spent a few happy hours last week designing, cutting out, and sewing up a monster for him.
