Scotty garland

I feel my blog has been getting a little yarn heavy recently and my sewing machine has been feeling slightly neglected.

So this weekend I ran up this.

I had meant to make this during December but I don’t think it looks too Christmassy.

I think it dresses up the old welsh dresser now the Christmas stockings have been packed away.

I’ll leave it up until Easter, when I have a spring garland planned.

I’ve enjoyed getting back on my machine.
My sewing brain is whirring again.

Please click below for a pdf of the scottie template. Print out on A4. Use the outer edge of the thick black marker pen as the actual size of the finished dog.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  3. Spooky! I did exactly the same today and got back on that horse (aka sewing machine) and made a little baby frock.
    Love those Scotties to bits – not too Christmassy at all.

    • I did so much on the machine before Christmas it was good to have a break.
      The great thing I love about using my machine is the speed. I can run up a little something in no time at all!

  4. This is a brilliant design, I wonder if a cat version would look as good (probably not) . Thanks for sharing. Jean

  6. They are really cute! I have been neglecting my sewing too in favour of yarn activities! – the post Christmas fair frenzy effect I think!

  7. Lovely! Although I’m in awe at how well you’ve sewn such a tricky shape on your machine – I make mistakes sewing straight lines!

  17. Lovely garland, you’re obviously very good with your sewing machine to do all those fiddly corners, and it looks fabulous on your dresser.
