It’s only 4 weeks until my Autumn term of classes starts back!
Our classes are ‘open’, which means they are mixed ability and you can work on any Patchwork and Quilting project you like, getting all the help and support you need.
But I also provide an optional class project each term. These might focus on a new technique, one of my new patterns or a new challenge to keep growing those brain cells!
In our new term we will be tackling soft toys!
I know these will be a hit with Grannies, Mummies and big kids alike!
I’ve curated 3 toy patterns from around the creative web to tempt my lovely ladies to try these cute 3d shapes!
Pattern available here (by Angela Lea Designs)
This cute girl was a dream to make, following Angela Lea Designs’ fab pattern.
She finishes at 11.5″ tall and has moveable ‘arms’ and tail.
I went a little less scrappy than the original pattern, but still had fun choosing from my Art Gallery scraps! Yum!
Ric Rac Trunk Show
Pattern available here (by Jodie Carleton)
This little darling stands proud at 10″ and the pattern includes 3 trunk variations.
It also includes an adorable ‘Elmer-esk’ patchwork version!
The Purl Bee Penguin
Free pattern available here (by Purl Soho)
This cute little fella (I’m calling him Percy!) is the smallest of our curated toys, at only 9″ tall.
The free pattern and templates are really clear, and could be easily enlarged if you’re after a bigger penguin.
So there you have it!
3 gorgeous soft toys to make, and 8 weeks in which to make them!
If you would like to enrol for a class, to make these soft toys or to work on your own project, you can get registered here (places are limited).
