Going Batty

This girl.  Love her so much.
We have an extra close granddaughter/grandma bond.
That said, our taste in "stuffies" is night and day.
Her plush animal collection includes dragons, chickens, and viruses.
Yes, viruses!!!
Mine would include bears, puppies, and butterflies.

So when she found a pattern on Etsy and asked me to help her sew it
- of course I said yes -
and of course I wasn't surprised that it was a pattern for a stuffed bat.

Okay, I admit, it's pretty cute.




She picked out the fabrics.

The head is stuffed with polyester stuffing.
The body is stuffed with polyester stuffing and Polypellets.
The eyes are plastic safety eyes.
The bat's name is Nebula.
My granddaughter LOVES her little bat.

Treasure the sewing journey with your little ones, my friends.

Happy Sewing!

Free Pencil Case Pattern



Hello, sewing friends!
I found a free pattern for you.
It is called "A Pencil Case for Lola" and it is a free download on the byAnnie Website.

There are no pockets or any extra addition on this little case.
Just a nice simple open case to store any number of items.
It has an accent strip along one side,
a carry strap,

and it opens up wide with that extra-wide handbag zipper
The inside of the case is finished nicely with little binding strips at each end:
You could use this for so much more than just pencils:



Here's a video so you can get a better look at this easy pattern:



Have a terrific sewing weekend.
