Grand opening

Things have been a little slow over here on the blog recently, mainly because I’ve been busy getting a full-fledged website together, which is now up at I’ll still be posting here on the blog (and I’ll probably still be tinkering with the website for a while), but the website will keep you updated on my Feed Dog Designs patterns, both those in magazines and those available in the new web shop!

felt sweets: mini jam roll + swiss cake roll

Anglo-American Snack Pack No. 1 Quite some time ago, I promised felt sweets patterns “soon.” Well, later rather than sooner, I’ve finally got a few together. To celebrate the launch of my website, you can get my first Anglo-American Snack Pack pattern free [PDF]! What’s so Anglo-American about it? Because the pattern includes both a British version—a mini jam roll—and an American version, a Swiss cake roll. They use the same pattern pieces but slightly different techniques. Go check ’em out!


Anglo-American Snack Pack No. 2 If you like the felt rolls, Anglo-American Snack Pack No. 2, with patterns for a Bakewell tart and a snack-cake-style chocolate cupcake, is also available now in my online shop for $3.50.

I’ve done my best to make accurate, complete patterns as well as a straightforward purchase process (using PayPal) on the website, but if anything goes wrong or you have any questions, do let me know at shop [at] feeddog [dot] net. And if you make anything with the patterns, please upload a photo to the Feed Dog Designs pool on Flickr! I’ve got more patterns in the works too, especially quilt patterns, so keep an eye out.

In Between Stitches, Livermore, CA

In other news, if you happen to live nearby, my Bird Crossing quilt is hanging up at In Between Stitches in Livermore, California—one of my favorite local quilt shops. Earlier this year they moved into a new space that’s big, bright, and beautiful. Go check them out!
