Honey, who shrunk the Larry LION toy sewing Pattern?

Posted under A day in my lifeBlogOther crafty stuff I love! on 2014-01-26 23:39:47

I got a lovely message from Michelle, to thank me for making such a cute Lion pattern! :) She has used my Lion Sewing Pattern to make part of her custom jungle animal mobile for a customer.

Lion Sewing pattern used for nursery mobileMichelle said,
“I had to size the pattern down 50% and take it in a little more…
it’s not easy working on such small things on the machine!!
Don’t look too close as I made some mistakes..it was my first attempt at him.
He still turned out cute! “

Mem Fleury shop Etsy

Michelle has an Etsy shop called Meme Fleury where she sells her nursery mobiles. She told me that the other animal patterns are mainstream patterns from USA fabric stores and she gives me credit for my lion pattern in her product description –

THANKS Michelle!

Take a look – I think her other nursery mobiles are JUST as gorgeous!!!! Click on the pics to go to Michelle’s Etsy shop to see them and check out her latest mobiles.

Hey, Michelle, thanks for taking the time to say THANK YOU –

I am a bit biased about Larry Lion! I wonder which is your favourite mobile?

Voodoo Rabbit used me as a guinea pig!

Posted under A day in my lifeBlogOther crafty stuff I love! on 2013-07-18 00:24:32

It’s TRUE! I got to be a guinea pig for the Voodoo Rabbit Circle Skirt Class.

Although I design soft toy sewing patterns I have very little experience sewing my own clothes. I guess it has always just been more fun for me to sew my softies than anything PRACTICAL like clothing, but I have always said ~>

Don’t knock it  – till you’ve tried it!

So when Kylie of Voodoo Rabbit fame asked me to be her guinea pig to test out her Circle Skirt Class I was keen to give it a go.

Finished Circle Skirts

For Kylie, it was a chance to practice her teaching skills and for me it was a chance to be on the receiving end of a new sewing pattern! Oooh, I hope I can follow pattern instructions – haha!!!! : )

Cutting out a circle skirt

Poor Kylie –  she didn’t know that I was ALWAYS the naughty kid in the class
and it seems

NOTHING’s changed!!!!
