Guess what? I’m a guest curator!

I’m so excited to announce that I have been asked to be a guest curator for Crafty Wool Felt on Etsy. Claudia has put together a lovely selection of felt sheets to match my PDF patterns for the combined Seed Annuals. She has a wonderful selection of 100% wool felt in GORGEOUS colors. You will want at least one of every color! 

Thank you, Claudia, for asking me to collaborate with you!

Welcome to Happytown!

I am so excited to show you what I’ve been working on for the past couple of months….Happytown Play Sets!

Happytown is a place where there are always lots of delightful things going on, and your child’s imagination (or yours!) is the only limit to how much fun everyone can have.

Patterns for all of the Happytown Play Sets can be found in my Etsy shop.

When my daughter was younger, she had a set of small, soft dolls. They were really simple, but she loved to play with them. They were great for car rides, appointments, “nap” time (when there wasn’t much napping going on, lol) or just any time she wanted to make up a story about what these small people were doing and where they were going. My wish is that these play sets spark that creativity for your kids or grandkids in the same way.

Their adorable faces, sweet clothes and funny pets don’t negate the fact that they are really, really easy to make, and quick, too! They don’t require a huge investment in materials, and they would be so fun to mix and match multiple sets.

I have so many more ideas for sets to come in the (hopefully near) future, but for now, meet these sweet and happy inhabitants of Happytown…

With cold weather approaching, it’s only right to first introduce Arthur, Alex and Zoe as they have fun in the snow and build a snowman!

Gracie loves to spend time at her Nana’s house. They laugh, share funny stories and bake yummy cookies. Mittens the cat is always nearby to give her opinion, of course.

Matilda and Poppy – PDF Rag Doll Patterns now available

It’s always such a wonderful feeling when inspiration strikes, and this time it was a desire to do something fun with lots of patterned fabrics in wonderful colors. Thus, Matilda and Poppy were born! I also had the itch to draw or paint some colorful faces, and that, along with some rag doll inspiration, led to these two fun dolls. They are not difficult to make, and there are lots of possibilities for variations depending on the colors and fabrics you choose. The PDF patterns are available in my Etsy shop – clicking on the window to the right will take you there. I will also have some kits made with all of the fabrics gathered for you, which makes it easy to get started making your own right away!

Matilda is ready for chilly weather with her lovely dress and handmade pom poms to warm her ears:
