If you’re looking for a new crafty project, here’s a few that have caught my eye recently. Most are free too!
Momiji posted up these free sewing patterns to make three cute sleep masks that match their dolls. They’re fairly easy and so cute, plus you could customise them for other animals too.
Do you believe in narwhals? They do actually exist in real life and this cute embroidery pattern by Wild Olive would make a lovely decoration for any narwhal fan.
Maqaroon just won’t stop with the adorable tutorial videos and this sock panda is one of my favourites. You just need some socks, stuffing, felt and glue, plus some hand-sewing skills.
We featured a cat cactus (cat-cus?) earlier this week and now you can stitch some too, with these embroidery patterns from The Pink Samurai. If you want to try before you buy, there’s a free pattern on her blog too.
And if those all sound too complicated, go download the free Totoro origami paper from PaperKawaii and get folding your own family of Totoros. There’s even a video if you get stuck.
