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!
