Blueprint Toys – Sew Desu Ne

I found this designer on Craftsy, which is now called BluePrint and unfortunately it’s super quite hard to find independent pattern designers like this Sew Desu Nu. So instead I’m recommending you to go straight to her blog – Choly Knight.

Designer – Sew Desu Ne

She has the most gorgeous makes with a huge number of free patterns as well as the affordable patterns in her store. I’ve only made one of her toys but so far I’m really impressed. Her patterns are really well written with step-by-step picture diagrams, which is perfect for any beginner sewer. Plus, they’re absolutely adorable!!

This is an example of her Bat Plush Toy that I attempted and absolutely love!

I’ve never really made toys before so I would consider myself a beginner in this field. The brown bat I accidentally put the ears on the wrong way but gosh, he’s still so cutie patoodie!

If you have kids or friends you can create or give these to, I highly recommend going over to Choly Knight’s blogΒ and checking these out.

Happy Sewing!

Summer Sewing Projects

It’s summer time in Australia, which means it’s time to start stitching up some of my favourite outfits, including dresses, shirts and skirts. I haven’t really made anything for myself for a while, despite sewing most weekends for freelance work.

Here are a few of my top picks to create this summer. Now I just have to make sure I have some nice fabric lined up ready to go!

Dresses

I love making dresses that are trendy for work and that you can also wear on weekends. Here are a few of my latest favourites.
