Sew’s Top 5 Downloads

With the arrival of May, it’s hard to believe that we’re already a quarter of the way through 2017 already! We’ve also been blown away with the creativity and hard work of our readers – you’ve certainly been busy over the past four months and we love seeing what you create on our social media. It’s also been interesting to note which of our online projects you’ve been downloading recently – here are the top five that have been the most popular.

5 Art Gallery Fabrics unicorn toy

Sew’s Top 5 Downloads

This fantastic beast has had many readers out to find him, and who can blame them? Sewn from simple shapes, he is easy to make, yet the end results look stunning, with his flowing mane, felt and ric rac hooves, plus his all-important horn. Find the pattern to create your own magical friend here.

4 Cat lover set

Sew’s Top 5 Downloads

Although it was originally created as a Mother's Day project, this pretty appliqué cushion would make a lovely gift for a feline fan at any time of the year! Quick to make, with pretty button detail, you can make this in any fabric and colour scheme you like, plus there's instructions to make a matching framed picture – all of which can be downloaded here.

3 Bowler bag

Sew’s Top 5 Downloads

The bold pattern and unique shape of this stylish holdall has already been a hit with many stitchers – not only does it look great, it also has plenty of room for all your necessities. Fully lined with two pockets, you can sew this in a variety of colours and prints to suit your personal wardrobe and really make it your own. If you haven't hadn't the chance to make this yet, check out the instructions and pattern here.

2 Dave dachshund

Sew’s Top 5 Downloads

He's been a firm favourite among Sew's readers for some time – after all, who can resist a cute sausage dog? What's more, he only requires a fat quarter of print fabric to make, with a small amount of a plain version for his inner ears and is really easy to whip up. This makes him the perfect project for beginners or more experienced stitchers wanting something to make quickly – find out how to sew him here.

1 Flossie flamingo

Sew’s Top 5 Downloads

Flamboyant and colourful, this lovely lady is the star of Sew's website projects, stitched from a variety of vibrant pink prints. She also has movable limbs and her graceful shape appeals to flamingo fans of all ages! If you'd like to create a Flossie of your very own, you can find the templates to make her here.
