Patchwork Cushion

Patchwork Cushion

My first try at making a patchwork cushion with my sewing machine. There are a fair few mistakes i will admit, but I am a beginner got a lot to learn, it was a lot harder than I thought it would be but I gave it a try.
Practice makes perfect so maybe next time it be better.
But quite proud of it really even if bits do look wonky πŸ™ˆ but it’s not bad for first try could have been worse. As I got quite frustrated at times but I got there eventually lol.

I cut out 18 squares of different patterned materials. And sewed them all together with my sewing machine. Stuffed it then sewed up the bottom which I did find hard to do.

Practice makes perfect.

Loom knitted polar bear

Loom knitted polar bear

Hi everyone,

I have had a few requests on a tutorial on how to make this cute little polar bear.

So I’ve put together a tutorial.

Things you need:

24 peg round loom

12 peg round loom

Scissors

Coloured yarn of your choice

Plastic safety eyes

Stuffing

Step 1

Using the 24 peg round loom for the body and head together I did 30 rows using the drawstring stitch.

Drawstring stitch is the best for knitting teddies as your able to sew the bottom and top up easier.

Step 2

After doing 30 rows I casted off using the same zig zag drawstring stitch. I pulled the yarn close together until it closed off the top, I stitched it to make it more secure.

Step 3

I stuffed it and added some safety eyes for the nose and eyes, then sewed up the bottom. I then tied some yarn around it to make the head shape, to part both both body and head.

Step 4

I did the same sewing technique for the arms and legs, but I used around 12 peg loom. I did 8 rows for the arms, stuffed them and sewed them on to the body. I did 10 rows for the legs and again stuffed them sewed them up and sewed them on to the body.

Step 5

For the hat I used a 24 peg round loom and again using draw string stitch, I did 15 rows. Then casted off and tied and sewed up the top end. I then sewed the hat on to the bears head.

There we have it a polar bear with a hat on. So cute.

Sewing a Pin Cushion

Sewing a Pin Cushion

Hi everyone,

As I’ve shown in previous post some simple sewing projects i have done with my new sewing machine.

I have started a sewing course for beginners and have learnt a lot from it already.

So my first task was to make a pin cushion.

I cut two materials to the same size one each for back and front.

For the front I practiced doing lots of different patterns using the different pattern settings on my sewing machine. I did this all the way across the front.

I then sewed both the back and front materials together, leaving one side open so that I could stuff the cushion then sewed it up.

And there we have it my first pin cushion.

Front

Back

I enjoyed making it.

Knitted Batman πŸ¦‡

Knitted Batman πŸ¦‡

Hi all,

My brother loves collecting batman things. So I decided to knit him a Batman.

I used four different coloured yarns to do this, yellow, black, grey and a peach like colour for the face.

I used a 24 peg round loom, a 12 peg round loom and a 6 peg round loom

Two buttons for the eyes πŸ‘€.

First I knitted the body, whick included the pant area, belt, body, face and mask

Till it looked like this, 8 rows for the pants, 10 rows for the belt, body 15 rows, face 12 rows and mask 10 rows.

I stuffed the batman with stuffing and sewed up both ends.

Next I knitted the legs and arms. For the legs I used a 12 peg round loom and did 15 rows, using black for the shoes which I did 6 rows and 9 rows for the legs. I stuffed them and sewed them to the body. For the arms I did 4 rows for the gloves and 8 rows for the arms, I stuffed them and sewed them on to the body.

I tied some thread around the neck area too seperate the neck and body.

I did 20 rows using 24 peg loom for the cape and sewed it onto the back of Batman.

For Batman’s horns I used 6 peg loom a did 5 rows then sewed them on to the top of the mask one on each side.

I sewed some buttons for the eyes and sewed a mouth and nose too.

I sewed a Batman logo on to the front of batman.

There we have a knitted Batman. My bother really liked it.

Knitted πŸ¦‹ Butterfly

Knitted πŸ¦‹ Butterfly

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to tell you how I made my knitted butterfly.

I love butterflies there just so pretty an beautiful πŸ¦‹ I would have butterflies everywhere if I could.

Well anyway, to make this butterfly you will need:

Different coloured yarn of your choice- I chose blue and turquoise sort of colour my favourite colours. I aso used a small bit of purple yarn.

Colourful buttons

Googly eyes

And a 24 peg round loom

And a 6 peg round loom

For the wings I used a 24 peg round loom , I used drawstring stitch, and o did 30 rows for each wing. Then stuffed them and sewed both ends up.

For the body, again I used the 24 peg round loom, but this time I did 40 rows using drawstring stitch, stuffed it then sewed both ends up. I tied some yarn round it to separate the body and head.

I tied some purple yarn around each wing to make the wing shape to seperate the top and bottom of the wings.

I then sewed the wings onto the body.

I sewed on matching colourful buttons for each wing. And glued on some googly eyes.

For the butterfly antennas I used blue yarn to match the wing colour. I used the 6 peg round loom, I did drawstring stitch and did 6 rows. I put a small bit of stuffing into each one. And tided abit of yarn around the top part of the antennas. I sewed them both on to the butterfly’s head. I sewed a smiley face on it too.

There we have it a loom knitted butterfly πŸ¦‹ I love it so pretty and colouful.

Sewing 🧡 machine craft project

Sewing 🧡 machine craft project

Hi, everyone πŸ™‹

So, for my second sewing machine project I kept to something simple as using a sewing machine is all very new to me.

Hopefully when I start my sewing course in September I’ll learn a lot more skills and get used of making more things in different shapes and sizes.

Well anyway, I have made a little bag, just could maybe do with handle if you were to use as a bag. Or it could be a make up bag or any personal belongings.

I used one long fat quarter material and sewed up 3 of the sides leaving it longer at the top so that it makes a flap. I sewed a button onto it and I cut a hole for the button so that you can close it.

There we have it my second sewing machine project.

Might try making cushion covers. 😊

Knitted🧢 Angel πŸ‘Ό

Knitted🧢 Angel πŸ‘Ό

Morning everyone,

I’ve been Loom knitting little characters again.

This time I’ve knitted an Angel πŸ‘Ό for my mom. She loves angels and I know it will mean a lot to her.

You will need:

12 peg round loom

24 peg round loom

8 peg round loom

Stuffing

Felt material

Pipe cleaners

Fabric glue

Scissors

I used a 12 peg round loom for the body and head joined together I used drawstring stitch again as it is best for doing teddies.

I did 10 rows for face and 20 rows for the body. I sewed both ends and tied some yarn around the neck part to shape the head and I stuffed it before sewing the ends up.

I used a 24 peg round loom using drawstring stitch for the angels dress I did 30 rows. After casting off I sewed the one side to the angels neck to stop it falling off.

I used an 8 peg round loom for the arms and hands joined together and sewed them on to the angel.

I sewed the angels hands together so that it looks like she is praying πŸ™

I used felt material to make the eyes, nose and mouth and glued them on using fabric glue.

And for the halo I used a white pipe cleaner and glued it on to the head using fabric glue.

There we have it a loom knitted angel πŸ‘Ό
