Grab a pattern or two

I love following someone's career. Especially when they pave their own way, uncertain where their venture may take them. It's even more exciting when your career is your passion. I'm very excited for Michelle of Michelle Patterns reaching her 6 year anniversary of making her little biz a full time career. She has written so many patterns, most of which I, hmm, own ;-) and each and everyone one always has a function or purpose, love that.

In honour of her 6th anniversary Michelle is having a $5 sale.

Most of her current patterns are only $5, yay.

Here are a few items I've made from her patterns, you've seen them all before but here is a very small round up.

Items I've made using Michelle Patterns

Michelle's patterns a very easy to follow and most can be finished in an afternoon. Very handy when you need a gift quickly, like this owl purse, too cute.

I've had my eye on her new pot holder pattern, I think I might be snapping that up, my kitchen needs a bit of sprucing up.

So if you are in need of a few extra patterns in your stash, and who isn't ;-) then pop over before April 8 for a bargain and help Michelle celebrate. If you do, let me know what you've made.

Super Space Alien

I know it's been a while, and it's not that I haven't been making, there has been heaps of that going on.

Like this Super Alien I made for Little O for his 3rd birthday.

Here he is in the making. I enlarged the pattern, i think by 150%. He looked like he was going to be too small to cuddle.

And here he is finished. Very easy to sew. I splurged and got real wool felt for the cape. I'm sick of the cheap stuff pilling.

He's a bit shy. I have to be honest. I didn't get the reaction from Little O that I expected. I think I should have made another robot or under the sea creature, he's not shy telling me what he thinks!!

Maybe I should just keep him for myself ;-)
