Sugar Loom #2: Little Red on Green"





Here's the perfect cozy fall activity: snuggle up on the sofa in a soft blanket, turn on a relaxing movie, and stitch by stitch will unfold an enchanting Sugar Loom--handmade by you!--no sewing machine required! We have our "Little Red on Green" hanging in the boudoir/bathroom upstairs. The two-year old loves to stare at it when she's on the potty and make disparaging remarks about that awful wolf. It's a child-mesmerizer, full of all of mom's good sewing karma. Kits will be available for sale within the next two weeks.

Hello you guys. Had to let you know I made the servant frock yesterday. I'm pretty much a beginner, and it took me no time. I even made my own bias tape. And it is so cute. I used an Amy Butler Midwestern Mod print fabric, and it looks sweet and vintagey...(is that a word?) Of course, when I added the ruffle, my inexperience showed by my crooked (really, really crooked) stitching, so I got out a strand of "lace" (flowers in a kind of daisy chain...) and sewed it over the top to hide the mistake. And the end result is pretty cute, and I'd actually let my girl wear it out in public. I like it enough to try to draft a big girl one for myself, so we can wear our frocks together while we mop, or sweep the sidewalk! How fun would that be? Love the looms by the way. My appreciation for things handmade has gone up exponentially since I've followed your blog!

It's very nice ! I like the dress and the basket of your little red riding hood. But poor Wolfie looks sick ! What did he eats ? Mushrooms ?
C'est magnifique Melissa :)

Cute as can be! I love the goofy expression on the wolf's face.

Melissa--Thanks so much for your comment over on my blog! I am always so impressed with y'all's originality and chic design sense, it was a huge compliment and made my day!

Audrey said...

I love it! I think I might improvise and add some little pigs in the place of little red as that is one of my boys favorites!

Kari said...

Melissa, I love this! What a great idea to make kits. Your wolf cracks me up.

trish said...

both of these sugar looms are so beautiful... I'm thinking they'd make excellent holiday gifts for the crafters I know.

Absolutely adorable.

And on an unrelated note...
I finished my two versions of the Village Frock. I LOVE them! Thank you for creating such an adorable pattern and making it available to your readers!
