Sewing with Patterns

Since I’ve mentioned my irrational fear of my new sewing machine here, I thought that I would share my first little project. Baby steps, baby steps. But let me tell you, auto needle threading has already changed my life!

I made this little wool felt doggie using Vogue Pattern 7760.

If you are having trouble getting started with sewing, we highly recommend using a pattern. A pattern will include detailed instructions, which will usually challenge you to try new techniques that you might not have even know about otherwise. You learn alot! This one is especially fun because you don’t have to worry about the item fitting when you are done, as Jaime said, “Guaranteed results!”

With his little heart patches, this little guy would make a cute Valentine’s day gift!




argh! i don't like patterns because mainly, i don't understand them. so today i went to the fabric store, and started browsing through the pattern books. i HAVE to learn to use them. i ran across some really cute plushie patterns. they seemed easy. i went off to find the patterns in the drawers, and alas, there were none left. ๐Ÿ™

i'm jealous. that doggie turned out so cute. i WILL learn to use patterns. ๐Ÿ™‚

good job.

Wow, that turned out great! How cute!

I've purchased a few pattern off Etsy from some really fabulous shops — the PLUS of this is the detailed instructions! ๐Ÿ™‚ Soon I'm hoping to add some little creations of mine to my own shop ^_^ Fun, fun.


He turned out so sweet. I started sewing about a year in half ago and still fear the sewing machine a little bit, but I love what comes off of it more.
