14 of 52 - All the days merge into one

It's official, I've been out of work so long that I don't know what day of the week it is. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not.

Anyway, that doesn't mean I haven't been busy but I haven't been getting as much done as I would like. So I took myself out yesterday for some fresh air and had a wander in town. I had to get some presents as apparently everyone I know has a birthday this weekend so after I did that I sat and had a cuppa and a bit of a brain storm. 2 pages of scribbles later and I came to conclusion that it's about time I made a pattern for a toy. A proper pattern that people can follow and make their own version of a new bear design.

This particular pattern will be a 4 in 1 so you'll be able to make variations on this item depending on your fabrics. It will also be more than one animal, but i'm not going to spoil the surprise yet.

So, if you would like to be a pattern tester please let me know. I'll be putting out a further call for testers closer to when it's finished but anyone who's interested, please let me know!

And for those of you who like a picture, here's a recent addition to my shop:


  1. Great idea clare! if only i could sew..

  2. Last few days when I've sat down at the wheel I've felt like I've not been achieving enough but sometimes you just have to take it easy on yourself. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. What cute bears. I'd be interested in seeing the pattern when it is finished. x

  4. I'd love to be a tester for you. Just let me know when it's good to go x

  5. I'd also love to be a pattern tester for you. Great work!!!

  6. I'll be a tester, Clare! I love sewing and that'd give me a great excuse to do some more :)
