Another toy from Hillary’s book, Evie Inchworm! It’s supposed to be called Eveline, but I thought Evie is more suitable. Although Miss A only calls it ‘ulat’ (Indonesian for caterpillar). I showed her the book and the only toy she want is this one. I was expecting it would be some of the pretty dolls. Well… it only took me half a day to hand sew this cutie. And she also refuses the sunglasses and kerchief!
Next, she wants me to make the blue bear (Marvin) for her baby brother.
A new doll and quilt! She’s actually made last year, when I were testing a pattern for Hillary‘s new book. Well, the book is out so I can finally show you Patchwork Penny! Isn’t she adorable?
She came with her own quilt that matches the strip on her dress. Now that I have the book, I know that her boots are the same fabric as the dinosaur there, I forgot his name. So she’s going to have another matchy matchy companion, a dinosaur!
And every toy in the book is just great, I can’t wait to try out some (or all) of them!
Hi panda! * wave*
Wool felt and little bit of Flea Market Fancy from Maritza Soto’s pattern. I love using my precious fabrics for toys because they will last forever (I hope).
The panda is jointed so you could move his arms up and down, pose him sitting down or standing up, and lots more of fun things, maybe holding a knitting needle?
I’m thinking he needs a skirt. Hm… what? Then he will not be a he anymore! Hm… let’s think some more then.
I will be dropping him off at the shoppe tomorrow. They’re having a shoppe birthday party and I want everyone to see panda!
And I just listed some scrap bags on etsy.
A bunny! I made her from Fiona‘s pattern. An easy pattern really, but I made it hard for myself by using wool instead of the suggested flannel. It’s a pain trying to turn the limbs inside out with such thick fabric. The wool does give her a lovely fuzzy texture that’s nice to cuddle with. Abby used her as a nap buddy right away after I finished her this morning.
Here’s another shot without the skirt. I used a Heather Ross print for her skirt. I’m almost tempted to sew it without changing thread, but decided not to and rethread my machine. I’m glad I did! Can you spot another Heather print there?
Well, technically only a pillow cover since it’s to be sent away for a swap. It would be more expensive to ship a big pillow, right? This for the Pillow Talk Swap over on Flickr, made from Denyse Schmidt’s Single Girl pattern. I used Kona Cotton and a bunch of my scraps. The backing is a 30s reproduction print that I recently got at a new quilt shop close to my home. It’s like 5 minutes drive! It’s a good thing they don’t sell too much designers’ fabric so my wallet is safe.
And the mouse is for a contest over at my local fabric shop, made from Sewing Stars’ pattern. Cute, no? Any ideas for it’s name?
M is for madeleines, especially those embroidered on linen.
And M is also for monkey, made from cuddly fleece. He’s not completely symmetrical but I’m fine with it, because he’s got a cute expression. Abby loved him (or possesive, I’m not sure), she got mad when I took him away to take some pictures.
My Olive is here! She’s gotten a complete makeover, new face, new bow, and new jumper! I had just enough trim for her jumper, like it’s just meant to be.
