Four New Toy Patterns to Show You!

I seem to have a little backlog of Simply Sewing patterns that I haven’t shared here! So here they are. There’s a dinosaur, a swan, a lion and the latest, out now, a polar bear! Post your makes on social media if you feel like sharing them! I’d love to see. You should still be able to download the templates that you need to make the toys. Just follow this link:

My Latest Toy Sewing Patterns are here!

I’ve been busy creating more toy sewing patterns for Simply Sewing! For issue 56 I created one of my favourite ever designs, the lovely, pink alpaca below and the team styled it so beautifully! I’ve used Shannon fabrics for this project; a smooth ivory plush and a cuddly, shaggier pile pale pink. You’ll need some different coloured wools and a scrap of a favourite fabric for the coat. Happy sewing! The templates are available to download at www.simplysewingmag.com/downloads

And issue 57 is out now too, featuring Emily the Elephant! Buy your magazine from all good newsagents or, again, you can download the templates from the Simply Sewing website. For this project I’ve used a pretty floral cotton duck fabric, with purple wool felt for the ears. Wool felt is ideal as it is washable, softer and far more durable than craft felt. I hope you enjoy making these latest toys! Remember to please tag me on social media if you’d like to show off your makes!

Meet Emily the Elephant!
I know you!
Hey, that’s me!
