Well, hello there! Aren't you adorable! And you came from a $1 pattern!
And you have a diaper! Have you ever seen a dog in a diaper, lol? There is a little hole in this diaper for the dog's tail. I love it.
I grabbed this pattern (Simplicity 1083) at Joann's over the Black Friday weekend when they were only $1. It comes with a small dog and a whole bunch of accessories. So far I've sewn the dog, the bow, the diaper...
And this cute tote! I still want to make the bone and the baby bottle. Besides getting the pattern for a steal, the faux fur was left over from sewing 5 owls and a llama (all from 1 yard!). Don't you love it when being able to sew works out so well? Patterns from the 'Big 4' companies often go on sale at Joann's and Hobby Lobby, so if you want to sew this little puppy watch for another sale and get yours too!
Most of the pattern pieces are quite small, and all of them have 1/4'' seam allowances. So I would put it at intermediate level. It didn't take very long, though. I used fusible fleece for stabilizer in the tote, fyi.
I am so excited for Christmas and seeing my kids open all the presents I've been sewing!
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
Today’s Friday Spotlight is this custom duffle that is a smaller size bag that works great for kids!
Wow! Can I tell you how amazed (and happy!) I am that so many of you want to sew up this little case for crochet hooks? But really, you can make this fold over case to fit so many different items that I didn't want to limit you.
Introducing the Easy Ruffle Shrug! This pattern belongs to me, I once sold it as a .pdf pattern, but now I'm offering it to my SewCanShe readers as a free download from my Craftsy Shop.
Read on to see my girls' Easter outfits.
You know what that means, there is something new today at This Little Light.
The third Tuesday (like today), is when new journaling pages and other printable are released so members of my sewing support circle can keep on planning, journaling, and more.
I'm so excited to show you the classic quilt blocks that I've been working on for July. As soon as Blend sent me this fabric, I knew that I would make the sailboat quilt block. Isn't it perfect?
In case you are catching this blog series for the first time, we're spending a year making gorgeous quilt blocks using the classic patterns and fresh modern fabrics from Anna Griffin and Blend Fabrics! So far we've made the Dutchman's Puzzle Block, the Churn Dash Block, the Friendship Star, and the Snowball and Nine Patch blocks together!
I have been wanting to sew something like this for so long! I guess I'm just really lucky that you voted for it for our March Un-Tutorials project. I'm not sure where this style of boxy tote came from, but it sure is cute, isn't it?
Finish your Chubby Lunch Tote.
My 7 year old son Connor has been nagging me for ages to sew him something for his bike. His sister's bike came with a little zipper case to carry things in, but alas, his did not. I did not feel particularly inspired by this request for a long time so other things got in the way. Finally I realized that I needed to make his bike bag pretty quick or feelings would be hurt.
It’s always so much fun for me to scroll Instagram and see something you made with one of my patterns.
Today let’s have fun checking out all the Fat Quarter Sized Fold Up Baskets that you have been sewing up!
