I made this sweet little elephant two years ago with the intention of writing up the pattern straight away but this crafty project has been sitting on the back burner ever since.
I love dachshunds, they’re so cute so had to make a pillow or two!
I have designed one before using only a silhouette …
… but this time I decided to add a cute little coat and features. I’m quite happy with the result. See more details HERE.
I also decided to offer this design as a PDF sewing pattern so that you too can make your own cute dachshund pillow. It is so much fun and easy to sew.
You can find the pattern in my Etsy shop HERE.

I made these cute little felt gift bags a while ago and they are so quick and easy to create using only one piece of felt and a little handsewing.
They look gorgeous decorated with buttons, sequins or beads with a pretty ribbon tied around the top.

Hello there! It’s been a while but I’m excited to be back and raring to go. I’ve been so busy with other things that Sew June Jones has taken a back seat lately.
This week I’ve picked up my needle and thread again and allowed myself to get lost under a mountain of felt!
I love to see Robins at this time of year with their orangey-red breasts and cute little faces. For me it’s a sign that Christmastime is here and I start to feel all festive.
