Cocoon Top & More

I am very belated in showing off my latest projects for the current issue of Sew News (which is still available on newsstands):


First up, Mermaid Tail Blankets! I’ve talked about this previously as this pattern along with a boy’s Shark Blanket and Mermaid Swim Tail are available as digital downloads in the Sew It All shop.

All of the patterns are easy to create and sew up in a flash so they make great last minute gifts. These are sized for kids, but add a bit of length to the body of the blanket and it’s perfect for adults too.

Also in the current issue are the instructions to make a Cocoon Knit top from a purchased pattern. It’s fun and cozy and is perfect to wear as a sporty workout top or dress it up and wear it out.

This look is also easy to adapt as well and I think comes out with impressive results. Do expect to use more material than what the pattern recommends since there is a lot of crossover in the tunic and sleeves. Otherwise, you can easily whip this up in about a day.

I can’t wait to see everyone’s versions of these patterns!
