Christmas is Coming…

Like I said to the lovelies on Facebook, you can slap me for saying that if you like. It really is a bit too early to mention the C word – unless you are planning on sewing handmade gifts of course!

With this in mind I’ve put our soft toy patterns on special this week. If you get started now you can easily make a whole family of dolls for your cuties for very little cost. You could make a little pillow and mini quilt to match each toy. Feel free to resize the templates from any of my patterns to suit. You could also make a matching tote bag to keep them in.

I’ve also put our Scrap Bin Sheep and Land Down Under quilt patterns on special. Same as always $4 for the PDF’s and $11.50 for the printed patterns.

 

Would you like me to make more easy-to-make soft toy and doll patterns? What about mug rug patterns, are they still a thing? What would you like to see?


I have quite literally spent all of my week chasing copyright infringements. There are a ton of people on Facebook and Instagram claiming my work as their own, as well as a couple of companies making products with my images on them. Some backpacks have shown up with my Wild Things critters on them.wild things cropped

I’ve decided the best way to deal with the Facebook and Instagrammers is to spam their posts with my details – I’ve picked up some new followers (hi!) – and then report them. If you come across them please just direct their followers to my page and then report the page (thank you). The companies I can prosecute!

Enjoy your weekend lovely people. I’m hoping to get some sewing done and to add a few thousand steps to my Fitbit count :o>  toni xxIMG_0559

 

The Red Boots Club

One of the greatest pleasures I have is seeing the quilts and toys you have made using my patterns. I’ve been toying (no pun intended LOL) with the idea of having a ‘Red Boots Club’ for some time, but I haven’t quite worked out how to do it, or whether you would be interested.

Let me know what you think, and any suggestions on how we could run it. xx

A big thank you to Debbie, Sonia, Shelley, Dawna, Sue, Lois, Margaret, Kylie, Anthea, Terri, Kirsten, Janet, Michelle, Kate, Tarnyia, Sio, Elaine, Jo, Wendy, Martha, Fiona, Vicki, and Jenny for sharing their photos with me. I will draw a name from the Red Boots hat and send you a gift in the post.
