idea-list #5

How lovely is this Loch Ness Monster softy? It is made large enough that a small child can sit and play on it, and though I don't have a child I could give this too I love large softies and this would be a lovely thing to sit in the corner of my living room (when I have one) and just look awesome - here's hoping B agrees! (Good news - I asked and he said I could make it!)
This pin also introduced me to the lovely gorgeous blog that is We Lived Happily Ever After -  I can't wait to read through more of the tutorials and posts on there!

These Scrabble tile pillows are a great gift idea, particularly now as we crafters are starting to think about our Christmas makes! You can buy them from Etsy, but I think I could make these myself quite straightforwardly and even play with some floral fabrics/bright colours rather than just traditional Scrabble colours!

This doughnut cushion is just too yummy not to have a go at making one day! It is made from felt which is one of my favourite materials to sew with (so easy and soft and such a bright clear finish) and the tutorial itself is clear cut and intelligent :) Again another beautiful blog well worth a visit - A Beautiful Mess.

Yay more felt! These are some of the cutest felt creatures I have seen for a while - they have these splendid little embroidered flower details on them as well that really add a lovely finish, and look very easy to translate free hand from the picture! Plus woodland creatures are adorable - again great present ideas!


I've finally sorted myself out and added a Sewing board to my Pinterest page - why not follow me on there if you enjoy my little weekly lists of ideas. I have so many projects I want to try already I am set for a fair few years!

  1. I really love this series. Nessie is ace - pattern looks like it might be adaptable for a narwharl or possibly a dinosaur too! Excellent find :)
