Ooshka Babushka Dolls!

Aren't they just an adorable pair of cuties! These cute ooshka babushka dolls  are made from a pattern designed by Lisa from One Red Thread. They are quick to make and of perfect cuddle size! I did find it best to line them with a thin fusible interfacing though, as one of the fabrics seemed to encourage the bearding of the toy fill through to the outside (grrrrr). We have the patterns available with a choice of four 'faces' with different hair and eye colours. We hope to have the boy faces in soon too. Each pattern comes with one pre- printed face panel. You can purchase separate face panels for $10 each. Although I rather like to appliqued faces myself....
I am off to sew another jewellery roll for April's Gift club project, I will post a pic when it is done!
Happy stitching,
Liisa xoxo

Sit Me up Donut patterns

How gorgeous is this Sit Me up Donut Pattern from Paula Storm designs. Paula kindly made up our sample with my choice of fabrics and we were thrilled with the results.Paula also has a free tutorial on her blog for a small cushion insert for the centre of the donut once your baby no longer needs to 'sit' in it! Paula's Blog 
 Paula also has a couple of other patterns and we have a sample of  Sammy Seahorse pattern too.We used Rosalie Quinlans pretty new range of fabrics for our version of Sammy and we have kits available also.   

A big thank you to Paula for sewing our samples!
Watch out over the next few days as I have lots of new info to tell you about! We have had lots of new stuff arriving and have been sooo busy stitching up new samples and projects that I have not had time to blog but I sure to make amends this week!
Happy Sewing,
Liisa xoxo
