Pattern Tutorial – Viking Helmet

To celebrate digital month over a SewMamaSew I thought I would share the joy around and provide some host posts as well.  Have you visited over there yet?

My short and sweet posts explain:

How to Buy & Use PDF Patterns (ePatterns, eBooks)

How to Print & Assemble PDF Patterns (ePatterns, eBooks)

There are heaps of posts over the coming month with free tutorials/projects and even advice on how to create your own EPatterns.

Scary Byron the Viking

I’ve provided a little pattern to let  everyone have a go in using EPatterns – only two pages to put together – quite frankly a record for me.

The little helmet came from the Viking PJs set.  It has a tiny resemblance to a viking battle helmet – you remember – a fluffy kind of viking. I resisted all temptation to add little viking ‘hair plaits’ out from the ears – maybe for the next one.

Don't get Byron the Viking angry!

Without the Pom Pom horns (which can be dangerous!) it is a reversible helmet cap.  I made the helmet using funky monkey material I picked up over at Flannel Queen.

All in the name of our holiday next week to New Zealand. I’m also lining his military jacket in addition to making a set of viking pyjamas (also) in funky monkey, I love the faux wool knit flannel – cheeky.

He is a professional viking so he can't show you his face on camera

I love the little ear flaps, if you added a couple of straps to the ears he could even go as Aviator Byron.

Maybe I can settle my current problem and create an easter bonnet byron for his parade?

You can pick up the pattern over at SewMamaSew or download the Ebook with pattern and instructions in my tutorial section.
