Parsley and Beet (and Avocado too)

This is Avocado,


she is an all - cotton version of the Parsley and Beet pattern and she is looking very pleased with herself as she is the (back) cover girl for the Parsley and Beet pattern.


It dawned on me last week, that I had so many questions about Doctor's flannel when I made the Kinder girls and Boys pattern, that finding or dyeing some wool for your own Parsley and Beets might be a bit of a headache.

So I set about another whole batch of pattern testing to make sure that you could make a 100% cotton version of Parsley and Beet if you want to.

Not only that, I have dyed some flannel and put it in the shop as well.

Now that the photos are took, the patterns are printed, the fabric is dyed, the destructions make sense, the testers have tested, the patterns are folded, and the postage is checked, I might just get back to a bit of sewing........I have a market sneaking up very quickly !

If you are pleased that this pattern has finally seen the light of day, you need to thank Maree. Without her nagging, you might still be waiting.

I promise the Disco Bots will be a bit faster!

  1. What will you come up with next, Jodie?? Parsley and Beet are gorgeous, but I think Avocado is gorgeouser - better not tell any of them though; would hate to upset them. Good luck with the market; hope to catch the last hour after I finish work. Hope all's well in your world.

  4. Congrtulations on another great pattern Jodie. The Doctors Flannel is gorgeous but knowing the patterns work with cotton is great.

    PS. Why does "cover girl" sound so sordid??!!

  11. Aww Avocado is just gorgeous!

    Thought you'd like to know, the Kinder girl I made for Minx recently was made with some soft cream-coloured brushed cotton - possibly Tilda fabric - and it sewed up a dream.

    I'll see if I can find any on the internets and send you a link.

  19. Hi Jodie! I’m your new fan! Gosh I love your craft projects and your sense of humor.
    And while browsing back to your old entries I found out we both hate buying underwears or is it just brassiere for you, anyways I love you and I’ll be following you from now on, (that sounds wrong) though I may not be able to comment a lot but lest you should know I’ll be on the look out for your amazing works! Thanks for being such an inspiration!

    Cheers :)

  23. She's adorable! And didn't the original Parsley and Beet have little rain boots? Or am I imagining things? Where would one find those?

    Bring on the Bots!!! Should we start our nagging for those???

  24. Do you work better under pressure? We could all start nagging if it helps ;)

    I think Parsley and Beet just made it onto my Christmas wish list!
