Do check out this how-to tutorial, its a simple step by step project that makes this really lovely Carrycot that will be treasured by any little one.

SAXON the Polar-Fleece Bear


This little dressed bear is my latest pattern, sweet and cuddly in his little cuffed Overalls.
I have so loved making him, choosing all the fabrics so that each one is sweeter than the next.

I love to mix cotton patterned fabric with fleece, so that he looks all dressed up.

I have named this Bear 'SAXON' after my only Grandson who is six and still loves a cuddle.


The cutting process, choosing fabric, what goes with what, I love this stage.


The little overalls all ready for the buttons and domes.

The faces all embroidered, each one slightly different which is the wonder of hand crafted.

All lined up like little solders waiting for their arms.

See how using fabric creates built in clothes.

All the overalls pressed and they are dressed, ready for a good home.

They really are cute don't you think?

Fashion for Girls 'Sweet Pinafore and Blouse'


Fashion for little ones  'Girls and their dresses'

You know how I love detail well this little outfit has it all, piping( I love), top stitching, frills, spotted buttons, floral's, stripes, soft cotton and of course its blue.


You would think with all this going on it would be overdone, it isn't because not one detail is more dominant than the others.  You can see I have also used three different fabrics in the pinafore but they are soft and once again of equal depth of colour.


The little white blouse does its job of keeping it ( quiet ), its a word I often use to describe a feeling.


  I have piped the blouse with the blue and white stripe, very fine as is also the cotton fabric I have used to make the blouse.

A little label
 on the back adds the detail that is my style.

Its a bit big for Kerah but maybe this summer.
Happy sewing
