Luna Lapin’s Liberty Cat

Lara’s final super cute make from the Luna Lapin’s friends book by Sarah Peel.  Here’s the cat which Lara has made for herself.  It’s completely gorgeous, as are the fox and rabbit shown in previous blog posts. “I made the cat first.  I chose the lovely felt fabric from a company called Billow Fabrics.  I decided that an old skirt of mine would make a rather lovely pinafore dress.  I lined the dress and ears with Wiltshire C.  I also used the Wiltshire C fabric on her footpads which looks really sweet.  I love the pinafore dress so much that …

Luna Lapin’s Liberty Fox

This is the second of Lara’s gorgeous projects – this is Luna Lapin’s Liberty Fox.  I simply love this adorable teddy.  Lara has taken the best from the pattern but has added her own touches for clothing and face design. I asked her about the project. “I bought the book ‘Luna Lapin’s Friends’ on a shopping trip to Evesham Vale.  There’s a cute little craft shop there that I love.  It caught my eye with its cute forest creatures.  I made this ‘Rafferty Fox’ for a new baby in our family.  I thought Rafferty was a fox like name although …

Cute Animal Bag Pattern – Cat or Mouse

Alice Caroline showcased this Cute Animal Bag Pattern on the Sewing Quarter last weekend.  It was so popular that I thought you may be interested in being able to buy the pattern for it.  Laura from the office has guest designed this gorgeous bag for me.  Everyone in the office and the studio has fallen in love with this bag. It’s a really clever design so that you can either make a cat or a mouse depending on which you, or your loved one, likes the best. I asked Laura a few questions about designing the bag.  She told me …
