When I’m asked what advice I would give beginning crafters, my response is … HAVE A GO!!! You’ll never know if you can do something unless you try! I believe that everyone has the potential to be creative & I love to do whatever I can to help people find that outlet. One of the main reasons I began designing patterns was to encourage people to ‘play’ & ‘have a go’.

Most of the patterns in the Tag Along Teddies range are designed to be beginner-friendly & I try to write my instructions to be easily understood by crafters with little experience … but they are also great for experienced stitchers who are looking for fun projects to relax with or use as the starting point for their own embellishments & creativity. Remember … your project will not look EXACTLY like the photo on the pattern … handmade items turn out slightly differently each time, depending on how it’s sewn, fabric used, applique placement etc. That’s part of the beauty of handmade crafts … no two are exactly the same! 😊
