Learning to Digitize Patterns

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 →

DIY Plaid Crochet Hat

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!

DIY Oversized Hoodie

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 →

DIY Halter Top

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 →

DIY Long Sleeve T-Shirt

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 →

Sew A Knit Beanie

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 →

Puppy Mug Hug

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.

Rug Hooked Cushion

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 →

Crochet Catnip Balls

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 →

Crochet Bowser

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.
