My First Sewing Pattern

My First Sewing Pattern

For the past two years I have had an item on my to-do list that never gets checked off.  That item is: create a PDF sewing pattern. As of today, that item is now checked off!  After months (er…okay…years) of percolating I finally took the plunge and just did it!  It was perhaps just a…

A Trio of Turtles

There is a lot of problem solving in my job.  I love making custom creatures, but I don’t know everything there is to know about making and designing stuffed animals (yet.)  Each one has it’s own unique set of design problems.  It is one of the reasons why I enjoy the work so much.  There…

Cute Snake Stuffie!

When it comes to snakes, I am a bit of a wimp.  Mice, spiders and other creepy crawly things don’t really bother me.  But even itty bitty garter snakes make me freeze up in fear. Until now.

Little Puppy Lovey Dovey

Last week I had one of those days where there was a lull between custom orders, and it was just me and the sewing room and a whole day ahead. And so I did something that I haven’t done in months – I went through my bin of UFOs, and projects “to start” and cleaned…

Another Crochet Project – Mary Jane Slippers

One of the projects I really wanted to crochet was a cute pair of bunny slippers from this book.  I really gave it my best shot (and persevered long after the point I would usually give up – this is what being on vacation allows me to do!)  But in the end, it just wasn’t meant to be. …

In love with Amigurumi

So what does a sewer do when she is on vacation?  Crochet, of course! I am lucky enough to have a mother who is a master crocheter, so when I went to visit my parents over the holidays, I had a few patterns I wanted to try out with her guidance. My planned projects didn’t…

Art Every Day – Day 4: Costume Sewing

Yesterday was a full day of sewing.  Hubby and I were off to a costume party last night and needed some medieval-type garb.  Due to a date mix-up on my part, as of yesterday morning our costumes were just fabric pieces lying on the sewing room floor.  But it’s amazing what one can do with a…
