Back in January I finished two cute little projects to be included in a collaborative book titled 50 Fat Quarter Toys*. It was such a thrill when editor Ame Verso asked me to be involved.
In the book’s pages you’ll find “a celebration of handmade toys, featuring fabulous stuffed animals, handmade baby gifts, Christmas makes and more – all made using fat quarter cuts of fabric – the most popular way that sewers buy fabric.”

50 Fat Quarter Toys contains ingenious games, toys for baby and sweet dolls too. I’m really excited to introduce you to the bunny that I created for the book. Meet Rosie Rabbit! I love her heart nose.
She’s made with simple construction methods and minimal materials. But she still looks extra cute! Using a print fabric for her body means she’s already half dressed. All I had to add was a very simple, elastic waisted skirt. The bow at her neck is the finishing touch!
The second project I designed is the Dolly Dreams Sleeping Bag. Isn’t it pretty? This is another simple sew. The front of the pocket is patchworked strips of fabric with some simple rows of hand quilting.
Sometimes I think the simplest designs and projects can be made special just by selecting the right fabrics and notions! I love how this little set turned out and I’m really proud that it is in a collaborative book with a whole host of very talented designers. It’s definitely a ‘pinch me’ moment.
You can pick up a copy of the book HERE or order it from your favourite book retailer. If you grab a copy, please let me know what you think!
