    School skort

    Every summer my daughter has to wear shorts to school under her summer dress or skirt if she wants to do any gymnastics on the playing field (it’s a modesty thing I presume).  This year, I forgot to buy any new shorts and she forgot to mention that last years were too small! I decided that there had to be a better solution out there, surely someone would sell a school skort (skirt with shorts built in underneath)?

    Sleepy toddler?  Use this sewing pattern to make them a suitably sleepy friend.

    There’s something rather cute about Sloths and they make a change from teddy bears!  I’ve designed Suzy the Snoozy Sloth to be very soft, floppy and cuddly, the ideal companion for any little one to snuggle up with.  It’s a fairly simple pattern to make, although sewing with plush fabric takes a little bit of getting used to – it’s worth it for the extra cute cuddly softness though!   Enjoy using your free sewing pattern to make your very own cuddly sloth toy!
