Kids or Pet Animal Pillows

This is a pattern I developed at Echidna Sewing as part of a new 'Home Sewing' inspirational page we are creating. These are easy to make, cute and definitely popular with the pugs!

You can download this free pattern and tutorial. Feel free to give me any feedback as well since I've only just started making patterns.

BurdaStyle Playsuit

I've always loved jumpsuits and playsuits but I find in stores they always have really short shorts! So when I saw the BurdaStyle Playsuit I thought I would give them a go.

I would have to admit the material BurdaStyle used as the main picture for this pattern is a bit horrible but the pattern itself is pretty great.




I would probably add belt loops next time since the belt didn't quite stay in place for the photo above. 

The pattern below shows long sleeves and pants so I just shortened the pants and didn't add the sleeves. See Pattern picture below.

Applique Baby Burp Cloths

I started an applique pinterest board with some really cute designs that are perfect for those baby or kids projects! Not that I have any children but it seems to be that time where friends are having babies again. 

Excitingly I am able to use some of the machines at work including the Brother ScanNCut which is what I used to cut out all of these applique designs below.

If you want to create any of these yourself you can view my project tutorial, where you can download the ScanNCut files and Burp Cloth pattern for free...I hope you enjoy!




Another Macaroon

I made this dress last year and you can probably guess the pattern! Yes, that's correct it's another Colette Macaron Dress. For this dress I did made one change and that was to combine the top together to make it one complete piece. I really liked how it turned out. 




The fabric is a cotton sateen from Bargain Box Fabrics.

See my finished projects page for all my other Macaron Dresses!

Burda Style 6196 Dress

I did a blog post back in October and it included a stripped dress I found off Pinterest (below left). As soon as I found the Burda Style 6916 pattern I wanted to make this dress.



For these three dress versions I made option C. The pattern itself was really easy to make, no issues. It's a nice dress pattern but it's very slim fitting!

Version 1




Version 2



Version 3

This was the tester dress I made with a slightly lower scoop neck.
