Item details

This is a sewing pattern (downloadable PDF) for a majestic root vegetable – the rutabaga (or turnip).

The pdf file consists of 16 pages (including cover and pattern sheets) and is about 3.9 MB in size. You will need Adobe Reader (free) to view this pattern. The pattern includes instructions and templates for a large and small rutabaga and instructions for balancing, finishing and creating texture.

The large template makes a rutabaga approximately 8 inches long and the smaller is about 6 inches. The pattern scales up and down easily and could be used to make lots of other vegetables (a radish would be sweet).

Skill level is advanced beginners and above – requiring basic sewing skills – and the pattern is a great introduction to 3 dimensional sewing. The rutabagas can be sewn entirely by hand or parts can be machine sewn. The instructions are very detailed.

Hope my work will look as perfect as Ann's works of art... The thing is... I don't have her skills and talent!
