Cut and Sew Doll Kits Make It Even Easier To Teach Kids How To Sew


I can remember when I was a young girl running to show my mother my latest craft or sewing project. She would tell me it was wonderful or beautiful and I would leave with a big smile on my face. Sometimes she would point out a few things I could improve upon. It was never a criticism just a lesson in improving one's skill. Being the perfectionist that I am I would either take it apart and fix it or replace it with a brand new piece.

In thinking about my custom fabric cut and sew doll ornaments I decided that with time being a commodity these days one way to teach kids how to sew would be to create cut and sew doll kits grouped by theme, season, or holidays. The kits would include the fabric pieces for the group and instructions for finishing the doll via machine stitching or by blanket stitching. By including two different ways to finish the ornaments kids could learn machine stitching and blanket stitch embroidery, too.  And, by grouping the ornaments by theme, season, or holiday you could organize craft activities for groups of kids or for families to do together. So, I decided to put some kits together.


The cut and sew doll ornaments in each group could be machine finished like the groups shown in the picture above. Or, the edges could be blanket stitched like the groups shown in the picture below.


The kits provide an easy and quick way for beginners or beginning sewing groups to learn how to hand sew and machine sew. And, maybe even how to blanket stitch. Plus, the kids end up with an adorable ornament to keep or give as a gift. That will definitely put a smile on their faces.

New Cut and Sew Baby Ornaments Kits For It's Raining Baby Showers


When I was designing my baby shower line of custom fabrics I wanted to create a way to quickly and easily create some adorable baby favors that could be used for decorating and taken home by the guests as a keepsake.  So, I created baby cut and sew dolls to make all the dolls in my baby shower line.

With time being a commodity these days I decided to speed things up even more by creating baby shower cut and sew custom fabric design kits.  The kits would include the fabric pieces for the different baby shower dolls and instructions for finishing the doll via machine stitching or by blanket stitching.


The favors can be machine finished like the ornaments shown in the picture above.  Or, the edges can blanket stitched like the ornaments shown in the picture above.

My cut and sew baby shower cut and sew favors or ornaments are a great way to decorate for a baby shower and make great keepsakes for the mother-to-be and guests.

New Mini Cut and Sew Doll Ornaments Kits


Sometimes I just like LITTLE. Little dolls, little ornaments, little crafts that are fast and easy to do.

Kids like little, too so when I was designing my cut and sew doll doll ornaments I thought little mini doll ornaments would be cute and designed several. They would be fast and easy to sew. And, being so little they wouldn't take a lot of time.

So, of course, my cut and sew kits include some of my little mini cut and sew fabric designs. The kits include 6 fabric pieces for the particular design and instructions for finishing the doll ornament via machine stitching or by blanket stitching.


The mini doll ornaments can be machine finished like the ornaments shown in the picture above or can be blanket stitched around the edges like the ornaments shown in the picture above.

Either way they're adorable and, best of all, they're LITTLE.

The Sneaks Family Custom Pillows Free E-Pattern For Creating 13" By 13" and 14" By 14" Pillows



You never know what is going to happen over at the "Sneaks Family" house.


The boys could be playing baseball or just plain horsing around.  So, it wouldn't be surprising if you saw pillows flying through the air.  When the boys get to rough housing anything is fair game - even the pillows.

The "Sneaks" love their custom fabric pillows and thought you might like to make some of your own. So, they designed a free e-pattern to show you how.

This pattern shows you how to make 4 different pillows: two pillows that are 13” by 13” (C and D) and two pillows that are 14” by 14” (A and B).  All pillows are made basically the same except for the finished embroidery stitches on the 13” by 13” pillows.
