My latest design, by request, a tree squirrel, for that squirrelly little one in your life. With the neutral gray you can have a lot of fun with the background making it for a boy or girl. Or, change the color of the squirrel.

3 sizes: The main instruction is for a crib size 36"x42". The instructions also include a smaller 24"x28" and larger 48"x56". This is the same image it has just been scaled up or down. You can or course add borders as well to change the dimensions. There are so many cute forest animal fabrics out there. If you border the large size you can even make it for a twin bed.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
The pattern lists fabric yardage, then uses a table to show the number of strips to cut, and then a set of tables with the number of pieces to cross cut from those strips. The entire top is then sewn row by row using straight 1/4" seams following a full page color "map" or image of the picture with pieces alphabetically labeled.
The shaping is done with quick corner, half square triangles. These are squares with a sew line drawn corner to corner and then placed on a larger piece or piece the same size. Once sewn you will trim the excess fabric.

Selecting Fabrics: Due to the fact that the pattern pieces may be sewn both horizontally and vertically to make the picture we recommend using non-directional fabric.

 

Product: When you purchase the pattern you have 2 choices, email or mailed.
