Here in BC we are enjoying some beautiful Summer weather. It feels as if Summer has been extra long between the teacher’s strike which got the kids out of school two weeks early and the weather which has been consistently good.
So, do you try and fit in a little extra crafting during your vacation time? It’s nice to be outside in the Summer so how about some super quick projects that fulfill your need to craft but leave you plenty of time for hitting the beach or pool?
I have been scouring Etsy to find fun printed panels to sew. There is such a great variety of styles and most can be made very quickly and may even be a suitable project for a child.
First up are these adorable flapper dolls by Flapperdoodle. They come in two sizes, eight or thirteen inches tall.
For the dinosaur lovers check out this temnodontosaurus platyodon by Paleoplushies. The kit includes almost everyting you need including stuffing and pins. It doesn’t say how big the finished plush is but the real thing grew up to twelve meters!
And lastly I love this zombie apocolypse doll kit designed by Emily Taylor and printed by Riley Blake. I am buying this one for sure if I can find one with reasonable shipping to Canada. The kit doll is the smaller one in the photo.
Easy, cut, sew, stuff!
