Sewing Machine Pin Cushion
A batch of the paper patterns are missing a page. You can print it here. Please contact me with your address if you would like me to mail the page to you instead.
The first edition of this pattern is missing the H and X Ray applique, here is a printable version.
Step 2. I use a basic up and down straight stitch for sewing the mouth. Stitches are approximately 1/8" in length. I stitch down his muzzle for about an inch and then start to curve to one side to make a "U" shape.
Otis and Rhubarb
Page 13 was left out of the pattern, just the numbering is off you're not missing any instructions.
Ear pattern piece should say place on fold along straight side. I have corrected all of the recent patterns sent out.
Stitching Otis and Rhubarbs mouth, further tutorial.
1. Using six strand black embroidery floss and a needle, bring the knotted thread in under the wool ball. Bring the needle up just under the nose.
Step 3. Once on side is finished, send the needle through to the center stitching line again. Make a second "U" shape on the remaining side of the muzzle. After the last stitch send the needle back up under the wool ball ties a knot and trim excess floss.
Lottie Dot Bag
The ultra firm interfacing is for the handles and the mid weight is for the body of the bag.
Okey Dokey Owl
Refer to actual pattern piece page for cutting top and bottom pieces. The 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 inch piece is the bottom of Okey Dokey and the 10 1/2 by 2 1/2 inch strip is the top of Okey Dokey's head.
Okey Dokey's tail is stuffed lightly, if it is too firm he will not stand correctly.
