Free cat bag pattern offered by blackdogworld on Craftsy..

Calling all cat lovers!

I just found an adorable free cat bag pattern on Craftsy designed by blackdogworld. Also included is a eyeglass case and coin purse.

If you have always admired the penny rugs made from wool felt, this would be a great opportunity to try your hand at the blanket stitch which is used to make penny rugs such as my "Harvest Blessings" candle mat.

To get a copy of blackdogworld's free pattern, please click here!

By the way, my "Harvest Blessings" candle mat pattern can be purchased on Etsy as either an Instant Download or by snail mail using all the major credit cards or PayPal.

Below is a picture of my pattern.

Free class offered at Craftsy...

To many dollmakers, drawing facial features is one of the most daunting part of dollmaking. In my spare time, I like to scour the web looking for hints to improve my drawing skills.

Recently I came across a free PDF instructional booklet on Craftsy..Drawing the Human Face: A Primer which is a PDF eGuide by Paul Heaston & Sandrine Pelissier. I haven't thoroughly read it yet, but it does look interesting, so I decided to share with all my dollmaking friends.

Leave me a comment and let me know if you find it helpful.
