I’ve been watching a lot of TV lately. I don’t know what it is- the heat, the reduced work load, something repressed from my childhood- but I can sit for hours and watch reruns. Total time suck!
Today, I bring you my girly version of the Little Lamb Pillow. This was seriously one of the fastest and most immediately pleasing projects of the summer. I think I had the whole thing cut, sewn and filled within an hour. And it turned out adorable!! I love it!!
And now for the details:
Who: Well if the pictures below are any indication, this one may go to the dog.
Brief Tangent- have you checked out Purl Soho’s website (The Purl Bee) before? It’s one of my absolute favorite spots to go for crafting inspiration. They have a wonderful collection of sewing, crocheting, knitting (and more) projects for all skill levels. As a newbie knitter, I’ve had success with their knitting projects. Also as a long-time crocheter, I’ve found their patterns super easy to follow. And, of course, their sewing projects are also really unique and inspired. Really, I can’t say enough good things about this site.
Cost: Nothing. I had the pink felt from the winter and the white felt was leftover from my tree skirt. I even had just enough stuffing sitting around to finish this off. I love when a project works out like this.
I love the idea of giving books to children. When the Elephant Walks is creative and funny. I love the illustrations. It’ll be the perfect book to go along with this elephant plushie. Together, these are headed off for a special little guy’s birthday.
Who: For a dear friend’s daughter.
What: I used the patterns and tutorials from The Blueberry Moon’s Nakey Baby series to make these.
I searched high and low to find free patterns for Bitty Baby doll clothes to make. Blueberry Moon’s tutorial seemed easy to follow and looked super cute. In the end, I used a copy machine to blow the pattern up slightly. The blanket used up scraps from making the doll clothes.
