Sewn | Felt Monsters
I found these adorable monsters on It’s Always Autumn and fell in love. They are super easy and kids will love them. You can make it a project to do together also!
One of my oldest friends recently gave birth to an adorable baby boy. I wanted to make her a fun baby announcement that had all of his stats, etc.
Check it out:
Find some ridiculous adorably fabric for your pups.
Make yourself a pattern based on your dog’s size.
Cut out the fabric according to your pattern and pin it with RIGHT sides facing. Stitch the sides together. You can leave the top of the triangle open. For the collar part, stitch three sides leaving one long side open.
Flip right side out and iron flat. For the collar portion, iron the rough sides under.
Insert the top of the triangle into the bottom of the collar portion. Stitch along the collar portion, sewing the triangle into the collar.
Sew on velcro on the opposing collar sides.
Let your dog’s inner diva shine with their shiny new bandana!
I used Simplicity Pattern 2824 to create two versions of these aprons for my nieces for Christmas.
Pre-wash all of the fabric.
Lay out the fabric, wrong sides together. Cut the fabric you wish not to be the edge down all the way around.
Make a fold along one side and make an edge. Pin the edge down along the side.
Once you get to the corner, Fold it down into a triangle and pin down.
Fold and pin the other three sides
Use a straight stitch and sew around the edges of the fabric. I sewed up the corners to make sure they stayed in place.
On September 30, I led a workshop at Georgetown University’s School for Continuing Studies about photography. This month’s theme was architecture. Here are a few photos that I took during the course of the evening.
We went to Weber’s Cider Mill Farm out in Baldwin, Md. to pick apples.
Here are some gorgeous Jonagold apples.
23 pounds later, it’s apple butter time.
Recipe adapted from Food52.
Cut out pattern and pin on fabric.
Cut out fabric from pattern, keep pinned.
Take ribbon and pin so that the ends are coming out. This way when you reverse the dinosaur, the ribbons will stick out like a mane or tail.
Sew along the lines, with a 3/8 inch inset. Leave an opening for stuffing.
Turn the dinosaur inside out and stuff. Once done, hand sew your opening.
What an adorable, and easy toy! Enjoy!
