I have been bursting at the seams (pun intended) to share my newest pattern, the mini pocket critters! My pocket kitty has been so popular with readers, my kids, and Pinterest and the idea was sparked to shrink it down as an Easter egg filler. I had so much fun sewing the mini kitty, I designed a whole crew of animal friends. My kids love playing with these little animals, and they use up the tiniest of felt scraps.
Have you been looking for a tiny little felt bunny pattern to sew? Today is your day! My kids love everything small and I wanted to think of something to sew that would fit in an Easter egg. They use up the tiniest of felt scraps and are so fun to make. I could see them strung on to necklaces, tucked into tiny little beds, or hanging out in an overall pocket. The little felt rabbits in our house have been driving in toy fire trucks, hiding in Lego castles, and snuggling at bedtime!
My mom made this beautiful Jaybird Quilts Park Bench BOM quilt from a Missouri Star Quilt Company kit and I wanted to share it since she isn’t online! After spending several weeks staying in her log cabin snuggled under her quilts I took some photos of my favorites; this one and then this masterpiece of an EPP hexie quilt. It’s funny, they are complete opposites in terms of process; that quilt was completely improvised, mainly sewn by hand, and all scraps whereas this one was a complete kit, with everything included and spelled out.
Looking for a creative outlet to channel your feminist pride? Feminist cross stitch patterns and feminist embroidery patterns have been popular in the past few years and I rounded up some of my favorites. Traditionally a demure and “lady-like” craft, needlework has become more popular with modern stitchers looking to express different values. The patterns I picked range from inspiring people to warning them; it is hard to choose a favorite!
