Project of the Week - Howdy

This week I've been making Stacy Iest Hsu Cowboy Panel - Westly - A great Summer Holiday Project.

- Make yours this Summer -
- This Panel can be bought in store or online -

Stacy is a fabric designer for Moda, her inspiration comes from reading books as a child. Stacy's fabric panels have full instructions printed on the panel & are easy to follow. There are a few additional things required, for example toy filling. They are listed on the panel. You will make the doll, bandana, blanket, pillow & pony on a stick.

- This Retro Howdy Lil Cowboy Collection is also available -

Here's Stacy's Howdy Lil Cowgirl - Madeline Doll Panel

- This is also available for you to make in store & online -
 It also includes full instructions to make the doll, 
bandana, skirt & belt, blanket, pillow & pony on a stick 

- Retro Cowgirl Print available online & in store - 

Now there's a story I'd like to share about Westly. Whilst making this little cowboy I knew it's home would eventually be in Cyprus where my nephew Liam lives. At this time I didn't know the cowboy was named Westly :) My mum was an avid Doris Day fan & one of her favourite films was "Moonlight Bay", it became a family favourite. My brother Mark was always up to mischief as was Wesley, Doris Day's little brother (sounding very similar to Westly). Mark is now Dad to Liam who no doubt will soon be up to mischief with his very own Cowboy Westly:)
