Nov 15, 2021 | Blog, NEW Toy Patterns

Yeehar! I’ve finally had the chance to update my Aardvark Sewing Pattern. When I designed Artie, it was before I began doing step-by-step photo tutorials…. soooooooooooo long ago! I have been reworking my older patterns because people have told me that they LOVE how they can “see how my toy patterns come together” with my photo tutorials!


I’m excited to say ~> 
this sweet fellow is ready
to go out into the big wide world AGAIN! 


Meet - Artie Aardvark


What fabrics can you use for a sewing an Aardvark?

Artie can be sewn in most fabrics. The Aardvark pattern will work well in both non-stretch fabrics (like quilting fabrics) as well as stretchy/knit fabrics (like fleece). They will also look good in all sorts of colours and textures…


Just look at
these lovely
feedback photos…
