There has been a lot of response to my request for pattern testers: thank you all for your interest!

I had a couple of very good suggestions that I will certainly use and update my pattern with. One of these was to increase the size of the smallest pattern parts, and another good one was to number the pattern pieces.
The pattern (and the kits) will be available soon, either here on my blog or in my DaWanda shop: please check back for updates.

Since I plan to start doing some (smallish) craft shows this winter I decided I had to make a couple more myself, and here they are (so far anyway :). I like how they look with different colours of felt:

Ik heb veel reacties gehad op mijn oproep voor patroontesters: bedankt allemaal!
Er zaten een aantal goede suggesties tussen de reacties die ik zeker ga gebruiken. Het patroon en de pakketjes zullen binnenkort beschikbaar zijn hier op mijn blog en/of in mijn DaWanda winkel dus kijk regelmatig even voor het laatste nieuws.
Zelf heb ik er ook nog maar een paar gemaakt:

I also love seeing how they turn out when made by others :) Here are a few examples I got back from some of my wonderful pattern testers:

Thanks again lovely ladies!

Nogmaals dank lieve dames!

EDIT: my mum made this one! It's a snowy owl made from white-grey 'fairy' felt. And the ribbon was a gift from my sister's trip to Sweden :)

EDIT: deze is door mijn moeder gemaakt! Het is een sneeuwuil van grijswit sprookjesvilt. En het bandje was een kadotje van mijn zus na een vakantie in Zweden :)


  1. They all turned out so very cute! I like the ones you made in different colors, it changes the way he looks, doesn't it? Fall colors are great for this project! I can't wait to visit the other testers, too! Thanks for this wonderful opportunity! It was fun!
