Here’s a little round up of some great patterns I’ve made for my pal Betz White. She began offering her Make New or Make Do Patterns last year and I’ve gladly done a few pattern tests for her. These first couple were done last fall.
For the Isabella tote I decided to Make New and Make Do by using a recycled pillow case for one side and a new textured coordinating fabric for the other.
Now for this past weeks projects. Here is a detail of some embroidery I did to accent a fabric I used on this bag. I love taking bold patterns and embellishing them!
I made this little bunny puppet for a baby shower gift based upon this pattern by Elizabeth Abernathy. It’s made from recycled and felted sweaters. I’m thinking of making some mittens based upon this idea for this upcoming winter.
And finally I made this little bee hat (also for a shower gift) based upon a really simple pattern in the book Stitch ‘N Bitch.
What have you been making this spring?
