Not long ago, I was able to test a different kind of pattern. It wasn't something for the kids wardrobe, but it was still, something for the kids: a bowling game! And oh boy, did I enjoy making something different?! I definately did. This was a rather a quick and easy sew project, to which I was able to use scraps from my stash. To start there are only two pages to print and no need to piece anything together - which is something really cool, when you're used to print just too many to test anything like kids clothes. Instructions are clear and detailed. with step by step pictures all through the process. And, you get some very usuful tips through the tutorial. I swear there was nearly nothing to note while testing. This came out really easy. The pin ball measures 24 cm (9.5") tall and the ball is 29cm (11.5") round. This pattern, also includes 2 extra pages with reversed numbers on them. You can do some appliqué numbers to your pins if you wish to.
Because the test happened to be so close to my friends little boy's birthday, this, of course, made the perfect gift for him - or so I thought. However, it took me a while to meet them, and since my friend reads this blog, I didn't want to ruin the surprise and have been postponing this over and over. If you're looking for a cool gift to sew for a little one in your life (or an adult, who knows?!), you can get your pattern over Nittens & Patches Shop.
