New photo tutorial for my Ozzie Octopus Sewing Pattern

Posted underA day in my lifeBlogToy-making TIPS & TUTORIALS on2017-02-23 23:31:37

I fell in LOVE with this Octopus Garden fabric when I saw the Hello Love fabric range by Heather Bailey at Quilt Market. I bought all 3 colourways of the fabric from Voodoo Rabbit Fabric.

I KNOW you don’t have to make a soft toy octopus in octopus fabric, BUT how cool does Ozzie Octopus look in Heather’s Octopus Garden fabric?




I have also just finished a new photo tutorial showing you step-by-step photos how to sew my octopus pattern.


I am gradually catching up on the photo tutorials for my older patterns. I started designing before I even had a digital camera and a camera on my phone so it’s a BIG job…

BUT somebody’s got to do it – LOL!  🙂

  2. Hi Janet, The photo tutorial is not available to the general public so you need to type that link into your internet browser (in the address bar). If you do not get to the page, it means you have made a mistake typing the link in. Please try again (copying and pasting the link is best!) and you will get to the page – I never take them down!!! 🙂
