Sewing Tuesday: Inquisitive Bird.

This week, I'll show you how to make this inquisitive bird.

He asks a lot of questions. He doesn't always expect an answer though, so don't worry. He just likes to ask and wonder. He also understands that some things are just the way they are for no particular reason.

Sewing Tuesday: Bengali the Tiger.

This week's project is an easy one, good for adapting to your own design!
I have made a tiger keyring with a simple teddy bear shape. You could make any animal this way, a panda, a monkey, a polar bear, just choose different colours of felt and decorate them with different features. You could sketch a few simple teddy shapes and draw different animals on to them, this will help you decide what to make.

I found a frog in our fuchsia plant! It was a real frog, but he must have hopped away as he wasn't there any more this morning. So, I decided to make my own frog, here's how to make a felt frog of your very own.

Sewing Tuesday: The lizard named Lionel.

A friend mentioned to me that she couldn't find any fun sewing projects that boys might like.
So, here's Lionel, he's a lizard. I'm going to show you how I made him today, so that you can make a brother or sister for him. Lizards are not just for boys, but I know more than a few boys who like lizards.
