Felt Garden Banner

easy sewing projects, felt pattern

        We’ve just posted our first FREE sewing pattern! And we anticipate this will be the first of many free sewing patterns we will offer. And if any of you think you recognize this felt banner, it would be because it was originally over on our old craft website, Holiday Crafts and Creations. But we are slowly moving all of our projects from there over to this website. So keep checking back for more!

Valentine’s Day Dog Pattern: Hugs

new sewing patterns

Hugs the Valentine Dog

        Well, we FINALLY did it!! We finally finished the entire Holiday Cat & Dog Collection! It has taken us about a year, which seems like much longer than it should, but I suppose that’s what happens when daily life gets in the way. We are just so thankful for all the kind comments and messages we have received along the way. That has been what’s really kept us going! Well without further ado, meet Hugs, the Valentine Dog and the last pattern in our Holiday Dog set!

        So now that our Holiday Dog collection is complete, the entire dog set is also now availabe. As with the Holiday Cat pattern collection, the Dog collection can be purchased all at once at a discounted price, rather than buying each pattern individually. We also offer a “Pick any 4” option, that is also slightly discounted like we did with the cat set. All of these new listings can be found here in our Etsy shop.

        Well now that the entire series is completed, we almost won’t know what to do with ourselves!! Actually that isn’t true, we seem to have a humongous To-Do list, and many many pattern ideas in the works. I will probably be getting back to the backyard bird series, while mom is going to be starting some dolls! But first we will probably take some time to do a little “house cleaning” and get some loose ends wrapped up.

A big “Thank You” to everyone who waited so patiently for this collection to be done, and for all the support you gave us along the way! Our customers are the best!! :)

Happy sewing everyone!


Valentine’s Day Cat Pattern: Lacey

Lacey the Valentine Cat

        After what has felt like forever, we finally finished the seventh, and final cat in our Holiday Cat Pattern series! Meet Lacey the Valentine Cat!! We had a few challenges with figuring out the design and colors, but she’s finally finished, and I think we are pretty pleased with how she turned out. And we hope you are too!

        This of course means that the entire Holiday Cat collection is now available! This is something we’ve been waiting to have for a long time. The Holiday Cat pattern collection can be purchased all at once at a discounted price, rather than buying each pattern individually. We also offer a “Pick any 4” option, that is also slightly discounted. Lacey, and all her friends will be available in our shop here on our website soon, but in the meantime, you can find them for sale over at our Etsy shop.

Thanks for reading!

Our First Blog Post! Introducing Our “Backyard Birds” Ornaments

new sewing patterns

Harold the Hummingbird

        This is our first blog post on our new website, and we are excited to announce Harold the Hummingbird! He is the first in what we plan on being a 12 pattern series! Our Backyard Birds collection will be a set of 12 ornament sized plushies, that will be just perfect for hanging in a window, on the wall, or on the Christmas Tree.

        Just outside of our work area, we have two bird feeders and some potted flowers, and we often get all types of birds visiting us there! Even now, in the dead of winter, we’ve seen a few hummingbirds quickly come and go. So we were inspired to create a backyard bird series, perhaps partially in anticipation for spring when we see even more bird activity!

        The next pattern in this series that we hope to complete will be a nuthatch, one of my personal favorites! Not all of the birds in our series will be ones what we see in our own yard though. There are many, like the cardinal for example, that we don’t see here, but certainly can’t leave out! We’d love to get your input on what you’d like to see in this collection, but so far here is what we are thinking: Hummingbird (of course), nuthatch, chickadee, goldfinch, robin, blue jay, cardinal, western tanager, oriole, waxwing, woodpecker, and blue bird. But this is not set in stone, and we’d love your input if you have any other ideas.

But for now, the next project is to get the Valentine’s Cat and Dog wrapped up, so that’s what you’ll be seeing next!

Until then, happy sewing!
