I recently - as in, over the last two years - have started designing my own clothing patterns. Now, I want to post them here so other people can download them. Yesterday and today I have been researching like crazy. I found so many tutorials for Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. However, these are programs that... Continue Reading →
I've been wanting to make jeans for a while now, but it has taken me a while to get started on them. First, I wanted to draft a pattern but it looked very complicated, so I decided to buy a pattern from Jalie, the same people I bought my running tights pattern from. That was... Continue Reading →
I made this hat earlier this winter. I love it so much, I wear it all the time and always get compliments. The free pattern is linked to under the picture. Try it out!
Last week I've been super busy making hoodies. I made three, one for myself and two to sell at craft fairs. The only problem is I've made the pattern myself and I have no idea how to upload it. When I figure it out I'll post it for free. I looked everywhere for a free... Continue Reading →
This shirt is called the Twist Front Top. You can find the free pattern and instructions at So Sew Easy. I made mine in a size small but I used a serger so there wan't really any seam allowance. It was a little too big for me so I took it in where I had... Continue Reading →
Today I made this long sleeve shirt. It is size small but I made it from a super stretchy knit fabric so it can fit medium or probably even large. I found the free pattern at Nap Time Creations. I think I'm going to make a bunch of these. I printed the pattern, taped the... Continue Reading →
Last night I made a beanie for a work friend. I had already made a few back in the fall for people I work with, but I had to make one more. I used this free pattern but changed up the sizes a little. Also, I added a band of fleece around the bottom so... Continue Reading →
I made this Puppy Mug Hug a few years ago. It's so cute, I thought I'd make a post about it. The instructions are at Red Heart. The only thing I would differently now, is add a single crochet border around the top and bottom because I do not like how uneven it is.
I made this cushion a few years ago. It came in a rug hooking kit. My Nan had started it, the first few rows anyway, and I finished it. Once I finished the hooking part I sewed a square of fleece to the back by hand. First I only sewed three sides so I could... Continue Reading →
Yesterday I made an infinity scarf with a hidden pocket in it. It's a great place to keep your phone or wallet or whatever. Now I need to think of a place to hide things in the summer. You will need: Fabric for scarf 65" x 30", or however big you want your scarf to... Continue Reading →
This my most popular creation yet. Well, in a cat's opinion. I can't even finish these toys before my cat is trying to play with it. I have to hide the balls that I make to sell because my cat would try to play with all of them. Every cat I give them to goes... Continue Reading →
Back in May and June of 2013, I made an amigurumi Bowser for my dad for father's day. The free pattern can be found at https://shedko247.wordpress.com/2011/10/04/bowser/. There are so many pieces to make, so it's a bit time consuming, but so worth it. Below are progress pictures of the Bowser I made.
