I’m excited to announce the release of my first sewing pattern and tutorial! This 2-in-1 pattern for a cuddly dinosaur or dragon lovey blanket has been over two years in the making. I initially released it as an already made item, and it was my best seller during the brief period of time that I made them.
The PDF sewing pattern is a digital file that will be delivered via email immediately after purchase. The skill level for the pattern is intermediate—some experience sewing soft toys is recommended, but the instructions are detailed enough for any sewing enthusiast to have success. The pattern provides easy to follow, step-by-step instructions with photos on how to make a dinosaur and a dragon lovey. In addition to the written instructions and photos, I’ve included links to video tutorials I’ve made for some of the steps requiring skills that may be new for beginners. I’ve even made a guide for how to print and assemble the pattern for those who find the thought of buying a digital pattern daunting.
The PDF includes the pattern both with a 1/4 inch seam allowance and without. The finished dimensions of the lovey blanket are approximately 13in by 13in (33cm by 33cm). I recommend fleece fabric for the pattern. (The loveys shown in my photos are made with organic cotton and hemp fleece, but they look great with polyester fleece as well.)
With the holidays right around the corner, this handmade lovey will make the perfect gift for a baby or toddler! You can find it here in my Etsy shop!
