Well the holidays are done and the kids are back to school for the last 2 months of school. I really enjoyed having them home and to be honest I also enjoy sending them back!
Over the holidays I did a few projects but this one comes with a freebie for you.
A few weeks back my friend Cass at Cass Can Sew put a call out for pattern tester for her new appliqué pattern. As soon as I saw they were Russian Dolls, my hand went up immediately.
I made a very simple envelope pillow then I used Heat & Bond Ultra Hold, this stuff is brilliant, you do not need to sew it. In fact if you can't (or don't like to) sew you could buy a cheap pillow and do the appliqué without so much as touching a needle. It just irons on. I have washed it before and it holds up well but do so at your own risk. That said you could have some fun new pillows in a matter of 15-20 minutes.
The pattern was very easy to work with and Cass has a nested option too. Go and check out all the ideas and download the free pattern here.
For those of you who don't sew, these would make beautiful paper crafts especially cards or wall art and Russian dolls are always a hit at Christmas! Actually I have another idea I hope to finish using the dolls very soon.
Thanks Cass for trusting me to play with your baby,
Thanks for reading,
