At the quilt festival I met Nancy, co-owner of her shop with her daughter Lauren, Kenzie Mac & Co. They have such adorable patterns and kits for kids clothes, totes, aprons and many more! And all of their products are MADE IN AMERICA! Big plus!
“Kenzie Mac & Co. was inspired after the birth of a precious baby girl named Mackenzie. Mackenzie’s mom[Lauren] and grandma[Nancy] began creating clothes for her to wear and accessories for her bedroom. After numerous friends, family and strangers inquired about some of these items Kenzie Mac and Co. was formed. ” [excerpt from About us section at kenziemac.com]
Their philosophy : “We enjoy creating our products by combining both vintage and new materials to create something unique with a timeless appeal. Our customers appreciate that they are receiving a quality item made with love and care.”
As for this pattern, the wee-being ,I decided to make a kitty for Ray! You can get creative and use colorful scraps and trims! Stitch them up in minutes and then fill it with some uncooked rice and VIOLA!
Wee-beings can be little friends for your child, a cute paper weight for your desk, or keep it in the freezer and cool down your child’s booboo with their favorite wee-being.
They are so easy to make! The pattern comes with shapes to cutout for eyes, ears and more. Simply gather scraps of fabric, trims, ribbon, tulle ,a cup of uncooked rice and anything else your child would like to “dress up” the wee-being as.
This is the perfect project to teach your children how to sew , simply sew your eyes and ears with wide eye needle and some 6 strand DMC floss.
Attach the ears and arms (if your children decided they’ll have arms 😛 ) and leave an opening for the rice. Fill up your wee-being with rice, stitch it up and your done!
Even Raymond is impressed at how easy and adorable these wee-beings are!
The possibilities are endless with this pattern! Get creative, pull out your scraps, and let your kids create little wee-beings!
Head to kenziemac.comfor a great pattern on this wee-being, materials for this project and to browse their other patterns! Trust me, you will start loading up your cart with such original, unique and adorable patterns and materials!! 🙂
