Hey, all! It’s been over a month since I published my puppy dog pattern, but I’m trying to put a post together after each new pattern, listing the exact materials I used. That way, if you want to use what I used, you’ll know where to find it!
First off, you can find Chet’s pattern HERE. I’ve loved seeing the adorable versions that others have come up with using this pattern and I can’t wait to see yours too!
Below are listed the materials I used to make Chet and links to purchase them! Continue reading Materials I Used – Chinese New Year Dog Pattern
Hey, all! Oliver the Bluebird’s pattern is now available for purchase! It got finished a little early, which is always exciting! You can purchase his pattern HERE.
I get asked a lot what the exact yarn and materials are that I use for my patterns, so I’ve gone ahead and listed the exact materials I used for Oliver and links to purchase them!
Yarn – For the blue, I used Red Heart Super Saver in the color “Turqua”. (I know, you would have never guessed). You can purchase it HERE.
For the yellow, I also used Red Heart Super Saver in the color, “Lemon”. (That’s easier to guess.) You can purchase it HERE.
Safety eyes – I used 15mm eyes for Oliver and I purchased them HERE. These are the best value I’ve found! If you’re interested in other safety eyes I use, take a look at my blog post HERE. Continue reading Materials I Used – Cuddle-Sized Bluebird Pattern
Hey, ya’ll! After my giveaway with Stacey from Fresh Stitches, I noticed a lot of people commenting and saying how hard it was to find safety eyes and how scarce and rare certain sizes were to find. So I thought it would be nice if I compiled a list of shops where you can buy safety eyes at and cut out some of the searching for you! I know that a lot of people aren’t able to find safety eyes locally, myself included. In fact, the only place I’ve ever been able to find them locally is at Hobby Lobby. And their selection is quite limited. Thus, most of the time I buy all my safety eyes online. Continue reading Where to Find Safety Eyes
