A Very Go To Christmas, Gifts & a Giveaway!

I’m so excited to be a part of A Very Go To Christmas!

The fabulous Andrea of Go To Patterns and Train to Crazy  has put together a fabulous holiday tour for all of us to enjoy! I love seeing other bloggers give their honest feedback on patterns (you just might find some of mine in the tour too!) and get fabulous ideas for my own sewing!



I got to try out two patterns from DIY Fluffies and I can’t wait to give them to my kids for Christmas!

The dragon is for Will. I know he is going to love chomping on that tail :)
And the “snort” is for Anne. She insists that’s what rhinos are called :) I let her pick out the fabric and she was very excited about the blue stars so I know she’ll love her new fluffie!
These patterns are for intermediate and advanced sewers and I have to admit I did get caught up a few times. The biggest thing for me is that these are European patterns so you have to add your own seam allowance. Definitely not a deal breaker but something to get used too :) 
I did make a couple changes and sewed on the dragon’s wing and arms by machine before assembling the body and I think that was a great choice. Assembly wasn’t too much harder and now they can’t be pulled off and swallowed. One other thing to note is that this rhino is a big boy! The dimensions are listed on the pattern but I didn’t pay much attention and was surprised at how big he came out. Not a problem but plan on using a whole bag of fluff to fill him up :)

    I like seeing a pattern made and reading what that person thinks and has done extra or has learned. This helps me pick out pattern. These two guys are just adorable.

    I LOVE both fluffies you made!! I wanted to make some for my kids for christmas, but gave up on the idea when I couldn’t find anything that really moved me. These look SO cute though!! I know my boys would LOVE to have them!! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    They’re so precious! I absolutely adore the dragon, but you did an amazing job on both of them. I’d love to make the dragon or the penguins in the picture.
