Rudolph Pattern!!

I made Rudolph soft toys last year, and so had a basic pattern and just needed to smarten it up and write instructions for it.

The pattern is 7 pages long and includes full instructions to make him and computer drafted pattern. I also included information and patterns to make different style scarf’s for him.

The pattern is available to buy on my blog or in my Etsy shop.
Coming next week is Santa and maybe one extra if I have time!

Christmas Challenge – Week Two

ARGH!! My Christmas sewing keeps getting side tracked!! I did at least make a start on gifts.
I made two fabric boxes from camouflage fabric, and filled them with a selection of dutch chocolates and sweets.

Later today I am cutting out and sewing two stockings for my nephews which I will also be filling with dutch candy.
And I am still madly searching for ideas on what to make for the adults and need to find something fast as time is running out!! 2 weeks left till I need to send it all off!!

Cupcake Tote for solids-only tote challenge!

Isn’t it just yummy!!! I made this cute cupcake tote for the solids-only tote challenge hosted by Ricochet and Away! and sew la vie. It was challenging making the cupcake pattern, but love how it turned out, and the little cherry is actually a brooch! And the best bit is I have shared the tutorial to make this cupcake tote on Ricochet and Away! And this tote is also for sale in my etsy shop here.

For the challenge you had to make a tote using only solid colours, and either Applique, Reverse Applique, or Patchwork. The challenge is open until end of November so there is still time for you to enter your own tote, and in December voting will start to pick the best one!

More Christmas Decorations

After my craft fair last weekend I spent some of the week restocking my sold items. One of the things that sold well were my fun Christmas decorations so I have been making more for a wholesale order.

I also took pictures finally of my Christmas stockings to put them on etsy, so tomorrow they should all be online! And I also have a couple more custom orders to get done too. It is nice to be busy 🙂
