hand stitched mushrooms : sewing pattern

Everything you need to know to make fabric mushrooms is in this sewing pattern.  Two sizes are included plus it scales easily up and down – so you can make a variety of fungi.  Beyond making fabulous toadstools I hope you take away some new ideas about shape building in textiles.

    How exciting! I was *just* wondering what hand work to pack on our lake side camping trip this weekend!

  3. Just purchased the pattern from your shop..ohhhh it is absolutely stunning! so many little details and all the photo;s!!!! perfect!!!…I am making the large ship from your ship pattern as we speak…I love love love the process…the pattern is so beautiful and easy to follow with the photos!…thank you soooooo much for sharing all your wonderful art with us!! and thank you also for the additional book titles you added!!!happy weekend Ann!

  4. I love everything on this blog! There is so much to inhale, to digest.

    The mushrooms, like all else here…are perfect. Usually crafted mushrooms are a bit stiff, fake- toylike. Yours are alive with personality, as real mushrooms are.

    I will be back to gawk, drool and be inspired.

  5. Hi! I just purchased your pattern and have started cutting out the pieces. Just wondering if I can substitute the stems for something other than the paper covered wire. I don’t have this but have a wire that I can wrap in batting. Would this work? Thank you so much!

    • Hi Arlyna – sure! Wire wrapped in batting is perfect. Good luck with your mushroom!
