I so loved working with the tweed and wool scraps before Christmas, that I wanted to have another wee 'play'!
The Scottie dog is based on this pattern, which I've made before here. But this time I used 3" squares (in the gusset too) because tweed and wool has a tendency to fray (understatement of the year!).
As I decorated him and saw his character come to life, I thought to myself how rustic he looked, and so the name Rusty came about.
And never content to just stick with the pattern, I decided to make a few variations, or 'friends' for Rusty!
Using 1.5" cut squares of linen (I don't make things easy for myself!!) I came up with this wee guy!
Let's call him Toto!
And using 2.5" cut squares, Petal was born, made using Amy Butler Soul Blossom jelly roll ends!
The family is complete!
These will all be class samples (even though Rusty looks right at home in my lounge!). The trickiest part of making them is putting in the gusset. But I'm hatching a plan for folks who might want an easier option.
And I spent the day today with several more 2 legged friends!
My PJs workshop was a lot of fun today! And see that cute model on the left? Anna is only 12, and she made her own PJs today! What a star!
Well done ladies! I hope you all sleep snuggly tonight in your beautiful new pjs!
