Sew things that put a smile on your face. Grab an old pair of jeans or some fabric scraps. Start your sustainable sewing project for cool gifts. At jotdot, you'll find patterns for useful everyday items for all ages. The focus is on ease of use, child safe sewing and sustainability. I am often inspired by characters from the animal world. In doing so, the used denim look gives the sewn piece a very special vibrancy. The pockets, the finished seams, the waistband, simply all parts of the jeans find their way into my patterns. Baby toys should not be sewn from old jeans. Therefore the 2nd focus child safe sewn toys for toddlers comes completely without jeans. My more than 15 years of experience as a fashion designer in the field of product design for babies flow into these patterns. You will learn all the necessary tips and tricks. Have fun sewing.
