Be an Elf!! Your sewing skills are just what Santa needs! It’s the most wonderful time of the year to stitch handmade toys from our Indygo Junction designs! We've got Monsters that teach, Creatures to cuddle and Gnomes all the way from the North Pole. Choose your favorites, get out the sewing machine and embrace your inner elf this year!
Fanciful Creatures Stuffed with Joy
Our Miniature Menagerie pattern is stuffed full of fabric charmers you can stitch from your stash! Each adorable pet uses a 14” x 14” piece of fabric or less along with poly stuffing, and your bright imagination. At around 5” in size, these little beasts are perfect to top a package or tuck into a stocking once it’s been “hung with care”! Keep in mind you will not want to use buttons on a project for a child. We suggest using felt circle for your eyes as an alternative to buttons.
The possibilities and choices are endless in this lively collection of 6! Coordinate fabrics to create an animal family or design a mobile of colorful solids to hang in a young one’s room. Even the adult "kids" on your list will love these pretty critters!
Our versions are shown with button features and leg attachments for an older child. To make them safe for your wee ones, stitch embroidery floss faces and attach legs with secure stitching instead of buttons.

A Helpful Monster for Under the Tree
A monster that teaches – what could be better than that?! Full of whimsy and fun, our Dress Myself Monster Doll is cuddly, cute, educational and full of surprises.
Your littles can learn to lace, tie, button, zip, snap and buckle as they enjoy hours of monster-size play! Make your Monsters bright and colorful, combine prints, dots or stripes and watch for the smiles at present opening time.
Check your scrap box, you may have just what you need to make your Dress Myself Monster Doll one-of-a-super-cool-kind. You'll need cottons or denim, vinyl for the vest, hook and loop tape for its heart, shoelaces, buttons and a few more bits and pieces.

There's No Sew Like Gnomes
Our little Show Your Spirit Gnome guys and girls are upcycle champions you can stitch in holiday or team colors. They're fun, fanciful and make wonderful gifts!
We’ve used upcycled socks, sweaters, jeans and t-shirts and added bits and pieces from the scrap pile for our Show Your Spirit Gnomes.
Choose one size or make all three! Large (13”) for festive décor, Medium (11”) for a child to snuggle and an ornament size (7”) for the tree or a wreath.
Head to the thrift store and/or your stash, find the colors you need to show your holiday or team spirit in delightful Gnome-ish style!

We've included a Santa version in our Show Your Spirit Gnomes pattern. His fluffy beard is torn strips of white denim jean fabric! Clever, eh?!? Whatever you choose to make, the joy and warmth of handmade will shine through in your gifts this season. And, remember - handmade is always Santa-approved!!
