It’s Quilt Market prep time around here, hence the radio silence. I was asked to design some stuffed robots based on Ann Kelle’s new Funbots… (click over to see the line, then check out D and my robot: pipe-cleaners for hands means he can hold things! this 6 year old boy is […]
I’m making some robot toys for the Robert Kaufman spring quilt market booth. They’re completely inspired by Ann Kelle’s Funbot fabric. And BOY ARE THEY FUN! This boy gets bonkers everything he gets to help play with them as I make them. They completely bring out his inner silly. (His #amineko, Green, is in for […]
a purple-haired doll for the Bean (Patchwork Penny from Wee Wonderfuls) a Katie Kitty (from the same book) an Amineko for D (from Hello My Name is Amineko), which was even more of a hit once he saw the book. now he’s totally into posing and photographing the cat.

I whipped this sucker out in 2 hours tonight. LOVE IT. I used the pattern from the new issue of STITCH magazine (though I tweaked it a bit)… the turquoise is a rayon/spandex tissue jersey remnant from Joanns, and the eyelet is an AMAZING silk cotton from Mood. (I treated myself to a stop there […]
as I put D to bed last night, he informed me that I needed to “stay up and make me a felt Harper and some mice for my felt kitty”uh… ok.so here are the mice I made, (on a 1″x1″ grid, so you can see how tiny they are)and the puppy I made…and I used […]
Some bunnies and a tote to hold them!
I was clearly overly ambitious. My plans were to knock out 18 of thesetonight… I did 6. Will start earlier tomorrow night… (based on the tutorial found here)
