I’m back participating in another blog tour hosted by Sewing by Ti, the Red, White and Pink Tour.
Originally I was planning to make a top or dress for my older daughter as it was her birthday earlier this month. Unfortunately the plans didn’t work out partly because I wound up catching the flu and it knocked me out completely for a few days and now more than a week later I’m still not 100%. I’ve also been volunteering at my daughter’s school running a lunchtime craft for a group of 21 kids in Kindergarten to Grade 2. It’s taking up almost all my free time, when I’m not hacking up a lung, to plan for.
So I thought I would share with you a project I made a couple months ago that I never got around sharing on my blog. (I did however share it on Instagram a few weeks ago so this may not be a new project for some of you). I’ve been meaning to share it here so it was good timing.
Late November I made this super sassy and cute softie using the Hazel deer pattern from Dolly Henry.
I completely forgot to share this Hazel Deer I made in November. The pattern is by @dollyhenryau All the clothing is removable (the capelet is so cute!) and was made using scrap fabric.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #dollmaking #stashsewing #sewingforkids #luluandceleste #madeincanada #faitauquebec #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #handmade #lovetosew #sewingblogger #creativemamas #sewing #sew #isew #indiesewing #memade #fabric #fabricaddict #craftastherapy #thatsdarling #sewing #stitching #sewingpattern #sewist #sewcialists #craftblogger⠀ #creativeeveryday
I used some scrap fabric left over from a couple outfits I had sewn Silly Bean last summer, and used a linen blend for the body I had scored nearly a full meter of in the bolt end bin at my local fabric store. I love that bin, you can usually get 3 pieces for $5 and sometimes the pieces are just shy of a full meter.
It’s a super cute pattern and went together pretty well. The facial features are hand-stitched but the rest is machine sewn. The cape is so adorable, all the clothing is removable (except the bonnet obviously).
I really don’t have much more to say about the pattern, ha. It’s just super adorable and I plan to make more, as soon as I can find the time!
Let’s get inspired!
