Free Pattern Friday! Winged Hair Clips

prj089

Lately I’ve gotten a lot of requests both for projects for complete sewing beginners and also for projects that use tiny little scraps of fabric 😀 So today I’ve got a little of both! It’s a super simple and sweet pattern for small plush wings you can use as hair clips. Included are both angel wings and bat wings. They look adorable in dark and pastel colors alike.

I imagine you could also attach a ribbon to them and make them into keychains as well. Needless to say, these are perfect for selling at craft shows and conventions since you can make them with little fabric leftovers. They sew up fast – even by hand – so you can even make them while you’re hanging out at the booth!
Even better, this might even help you put the finishing touches on a Halloween costume you’re working on! Either way, I hope you all enjoy it and it gives some more options to you newbies out there!

Free Pattern Friday! Bat Plush

Prj087

Since it’s still September it’s not quite Halloween season, but I couldn’t help myself! I felt the urge to make a little bat plush and wanted to share the pattern with you 😀
It’s a pretty basic shape with a big head, tiny body, and oversized wings and ears. It’s wonderfully floppy and expressive and very fun to hug. It features several face applique options including lashed eyes, heart shaped nose, fangs, and blush marks. You can mix and match to make your favorite. The wings also have extra top-stitching for some special detail.

It only has four pattern pieces, but placing everything just right is crucial. Not only to be sure the wings and ears are symmetrical, but to be certain the neck is sewn straight as well. If you have no problem taking it carefully during those parts you should be good! I gave it a 3/10 stars in difficulty with all that in mind. I hope you’ll try making one in time for Halloween!

Bat Hat Giveaway!

Thanks to all of you I now have over 1,000 followers on my website here! In honor of this, I’m holding another giveaway!

BatHat

BatHat2The prize for this giveaway is one of my original hat creations, this adorable and fluffy little bat x3 It features cute little ears, a professional satin stitched face, and two long wings that come down the sides. It’s made from polar fleece which is perfectly machine washable, but also air dries quickly if you want to avoid machine drying it and keep it looking new as long as possible. It’s pretty much a one-size-fits-all for adults, as it fits heads between 22”-25” in circumference because it stretches so nicely.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
For this giveaway, I thought I’d try something new. While the randomly chosen winner will get the bat hat, everyone else will also get a prize! I’ve been working hard all month making some more hats and hoodies (like the bat hat here) from the last of my fleece yardage and they’ll be done just in time for the holiday season (stay tuned for an update about that in about a week) 😀 Once the winner of the giveaway reaches me, everyone will be mailed a coupon code to my Etsy store so you’re free to buy a hat at a discount if you didn’t win! ^-^

Freebie Friday! The Battie Treat Bag

Prj047
Another Halloween treat for you all! This time it’s directed mostly at the kiddies ^-^ I had some scraps of black twill that I thought would work perfectly for a little treat bag. Lots of different animal options came to mind, but a cute little bat enamored me the most. Now your favorite vampire or witch will be completely set for Halloween!
The bag is just a simple bucket bag style, but the added wings, ears, and appliqué make it perfect for any little vampires or witches out there. Or you could leave off the handle and use it for handing out candy this year 😀
