The Apollo Sweater

shining1web

Pretty much since I found out I was pregnant & having a boy, I have been obsessed with having this Apollo sweater from the movie “the Shining” for him. Leave it to the ever so talented other Pipers Girl (Jeanette) to make an even better version. Isn’t it perfect!? Its pretty spooky around this time of year because of its Horror film connection. Wear it all year round and its an absolutely adorable sweater for a little one! Our knitting pattern comes in a PDF for instant download and is sized for a child 2-6. We also offer yarn kits, which are a great deal because they comes with all of the beautiful yarns we used with just the right amount & the pattern(high quality wool blends that are washable).

It’s that spooky time of year again! This year I have a 4 year old who is crazy for Halloween and cannot seem to get enough of decorating. So we are going a little overboard with the decor this year. And since we are fabric enthusiasts, we wanted to make a little something with some of our favorite prints. We ended up with was this adorable Trick or Treat Banner. We love it, and thought you might too, so we decided to give you the pattern in an easy to make tutorial. This can be made “no sew” if you would prefer or you can stitch a little if that’s what you enjoy. We are also selling kits with all of our same fabrics & felts, to make it easy for you. Our kit gives you lots of variety, with out having to purchase large quantities, plus you know it will be as cute as ours! There is a link below to download the Free Pattern in a PDF as well as a link to purchase kits. Enjoy!

I hope your little one likes it as much as mine!

Quiltmania Special Children 2015

qmaniaI am always excited to see the new Quiltmania Special Children Magazine when it comes out each year! We especially love all things for kids and so its always a fave. This year is the 2nd year in a row that we have had one of our original designs featured in it, so its a little extra special! It has just started showing up in the U.S. stores, so look out for one, they always sell out quickly. Our quilt Sleepytime is included alongside 19 other adorable projects. I like them all, but there is a quilt called “I Spy” by Trish Harper that is my very favorite, its pictured below.

qmania3Isn’t it sweet? And below is our Sleepytime Quilt, my other favorite!

It is pretty simple to make and will have everyone asking where it came from & than begging you to knit one for their little one. The pattern comes in a PDF and will fit most 2-5 year old children perfectly. My son just turned 4 and he wore this one all of last year too. Also, we have a limited number of kits available with oh so soft Debbie Bliss Luxury yarns, all that you need to make the scarf, plus the pattern, shipped to you. Now I want one for myself!

Busy Birds

This is one of our latest designs inspired by our Row Quilt. Its called Busy Birds, we are really loving it, but were curious to see what you all think? The birds are paper pieced, and the simple to make pinwheels are 3 dimensional. The finished size is 51″ X 51″. The PDF pattern and kits are available now through the links below. I especially love the striped binding, and we found the most perfect fabric from the Bloom & Bliss collection to use as the backing.
