New Handcrafted Timber Sewing Accessories

My darling Dad has been busy again creating these amazing handcrafted timber sewing accessories for you. Most pieces are one off items. As you can see they are amazing. Each time I receive a collection from him I have to resist the temptation to keep them all myself...very selfish of me I know. But I just love everything that he makes.

It was my sweet daughter of 14 who reminded me that I needed to share her grandfather's talents with others are well, and she was right!

So with no more to be said, click here now to see what he has made for you. You won't be disappointed.

Button Dolly

Many years ago I stumbled across a button dolly and was immediately taken in. Perhaps it was the excitement of having a worthy project for some of the many buttons in my button collection, or perhaps it was the simplicity of the doll that appealed to me. Whatever the reason, I decided to have a go at making my very own version for you to enjoy.

Since colonial days women have been making dolls from leftover buttons for their children to play with. These delightful button dolls are still popular today, although are used as decorative items rather than toys.

The biggest decision was sorting through some of my button draws trying to decide which buttons to use.

The process of making the dolly is quite simple once you get going.

And I couldn't resist in making her a primitive style dress and garden hat.

The good news is that I have just uploaded my button dolly pattern onto the Stitching Cow website. So click here now and download a copy of the Button Dollly pattern.

You could be making your very own button dolly today! 

Have fun!

Handcrafted Timber Sewing Items from Stitching Cow

Just wanted to let you know that I have uploaded lots of new handcrafted timber sewing items onto the Stitching Cow website.

Each of these items is unique because they have been skilfully created by my Dad who loves nothing more that spending time in his workshop. All the timbers used are quality Australian timbers that have been selected because of their grain and durability. Lots of time and care has gone into making these items and they are exclusive to my website, most are one off pieces.

So do yourself a favour and check them out by clicking the link here.

Hope you find something special for your sewing room or as a gift for a friend or loved one.
