My latest project for Love Patchwork and Quilting is this adorable bunny doorstop! He’s made from a light caramel coloured plush fabric and has Liberty fabric appliqued details, as well as a fluffy wool pom pom tail….not seen in the picture here! Inside the bunny’s bottom there are baking beans to add some weight, so he can easily hold open your door. There’s also a Liberty fabric and felt carrot for an emergency snack. Issue 72 has all the step by step instructions you need to make him, plus the templates. So what are you waiting for!? This little rabbit will really make a spring statement in your home!
Simply Sewing Toy Lamb Project
My first project for Simply Sewing magazine appears in issue 53, on sale on the 21st February! This is an easy to sew project, just make sure to take your time sewing, as stretchy lamb fleece plush can be tricky to sew. The lamb also has a sweet little bow tie, which I have sewn using Liberty Betsy tana lawn cotton fabric, in shades of turquoise and green. It’s so pretty! Do tag me on social media if you make your own little lamb for Spring! Happy sewing!
I was so excited the other day to go and seek out and buy issue 64 of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine…which features my project to make your own fuzzy llama! You’ll find a materials guide, photos and step by step instructions to make this super cute soft toy for yourself. I made two versions for this feature; a cuddly, cream woolly version and a pale pink, long haired one. Which is your favourite? If you do make one, and you’re on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, please do post a picture and tag me! Search me out using, ‘The Whistling Cowgirl’ or @whistlincowgirl on Twitter. Meantime, here’s a couple of snaps of the issue….
