Onigiri Toy - Free Sewing Pattern!


I made this cute Onigiri (rice ball) as a gift, he turned out kinda cute so I've written up a tutorial so you can make him yourself!
The pattern is a free pdf which you can find on the Extras page of my website. (or from the link at the bottom of this post)
He's very easy to make so is perfect for beginners or a quick project. You can make him in half an hour using scraps of fabric.
Great as a gift or for yourself, customise him any way you like!
If you make one, send me a picture! ;)

Get the Tutorial here!

Have fun! ;)

This is one of my favorite drawings I've done in my moleskine so far.
It's of my characters Ayr and Glyder.
Ayr is based on Akihito Okano, Glyder was based on a photo of a Tibetan man from a book.
I later turned the Glyder half into a watercolour for part of Project 52.

Bags With Bite!


Messing around wondering what to do to use up all my fabric scraps I decided to make something practical with them... a bag!
But of course it couldn't be just any ole bag, it had to be fun and cute and unique, so I made a bag with bite!

Meet Scraps, the result of my efforts!


I was rather charmed by the little fellow and decided to write up the pattern so others too could have a monster bag!
During the process I created another monster bag named Ginger.
He only eats gingerbread, 3 meals a day, or he gets grumpy. X3


If you fancy having your own Monster Bag, the pattern is avaliable from Etsy, and Ginger is also for sale there.

Project 52 - March

March was a terrible month for my watercolours, I couldn't seem to do a decent one!
They were all over worked or under planned.

Still I had a go, to see the rest of this months awful attempts go to my Flickr.
