TTMT #355 – Birthdays & Surprises (and a free pattern)

Today, I share some gifts made for the hubster as well as hinting at some secrets in progress and talking about an upcoming DIY project.

Cross My Hearts

In honor of the memory of my mother-in-law, Carol, who we lost one year ago today, I please enjoy my pattern, Cross My Hearts (previously $2.95) for free. ♥

This block is 6″ paper pieced (6 1/2″ unfinished).

Want a different size? I have a tutorial for that. :)

Happy Holidays, My Friends!

2015 card for sewhooked

Hello, my friends!

As you may have guessed, I have decided to forgo Talk To Me Tuesday today.

Even so, I wanted to stop by and wish you all a very happy holiday season!

Whatever holiday you and your family are celebrating during this lovely time of year, I hope it is full of family, friends, fun and laughter.

Still hot butter toffee covered in chocolate.

In case you missed it, I shared my family’s favorite Chocolate Covered Butter Toffee recipe last week. It’s one of the easiest and yummiest candies to make!

I Want To Believe: An X-Files Quilt & Stitch Along coming 2016 on fandominstitches.com

Two New Freebies!

The very lovely and talented Jennifer Rowles put together the amazing Smartphone Quilt Along, now in it’s entirety over on Fandom in Stitches.

As with many of our events on Fandom in Stitches, we ended this one by throwing out an invite to our community to share supplemental designs for the project.

I thought it would be fun to design two of my favorite crafty apps to share with our community.

Both of these patterns are free and can also be found on Fandom in Stitches today as part of the #SMQAL Design Invitational!

Robert Kaufman Quilt Calculator is my go-to app for calculating binding. It has oodles of other features, but that is definitely my favorite!

This free pattern is 10″ Paper Pieced.

Robert Kaufman App pattern tested by Vanda

Tested version by Vanda Chittenden. Thanks, Vanda!

The Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Store App has been a lifesaver! I used to always forget my coupons, but now they are always available at the touch of a finger. Woo, technology!

This free pattern is also 10″ Paper Pieced.

31 Days of Halloween – Vampires & Werewolves

31 Days of Halloween on sewhooked.com

It’s Monday, October 5, and that means another fun post for the 31 Days of Halloween right here on Sewhooked!

Today, I thought I’d share two free paper pieced patterns that I designed for fandominstitches.com, but that work beautifully well for Halloween, too!

Vampire Fangs Paper Pieced pattern by Jennifer Ofenstein, sewhooked.com

The first up is my Vampire Fangs pattern, designed with my vampire-loving friends in mind. I still love those chompers!

Vampire Fangs is 5 1/2″ (5″ finished) paper pieced and absolutely free!

Get the pattern here.

Prefer Craftsy? You can download it there, too! Team Jacob howling wolf pillow made for archerprenNext, how about a spooky Howling Wolf? While I imagine him as a werewolf, use your own imagination as to where he might fit in your Halloween plans. He’s shown here as part of a cushion I made for a friend ages quite some time ago. I still love that circle fabric in the border!

2004 - Frodo and Werewolf

Here is my own Howling Wolf, along with her little brother, Frodo, from way back in 2004!

The Howling Wolf pattern is 5 1/2″ (5″ finished) and absolutely free.

Get the pattern here.

If you prefer, download the pattern from Craftsy!

She makes up at 10″ (10 1/2″ unfinished), but you can have her in any size you like by using my handy dandy Enlarging and Reducing Tutorial (get it on Craftsy!)

How much do I love Sunbonnet Sue? I have an entire page of patterns dedicated to her!
