It’s September now, and while hints of autumn may be in the air other places in the world, in Austin it’s still hot and sticky and feels like summer!
It’s a good thing, too, because the Summer Sue Makeover to update Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends is not quite done!
Today I bring you two updated sets from the Way Back files: Fanciful Fairies and Friendly Familiars. Both sets have been completely updated, and as with the previously updated set, each individual block is now available as a stand alone pattern exclusively from Craftsy!
How much do I love Sunbonnet Sue? She has her own page here on Sewhooked!
Fanciful Fairies includes 6 full color patterns of sweet fairies!
Bonus Pattern! Water Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy
Water Fairy is a bonus pattern not included with the set. When I was originally drafting these patterns several years ago for a book that ended up not being published, she was an extra that didn’t make the cut. Here she is now, in her sweet glory!
Friendly Familiars (Paper Pieced Blocks) , $7 on Craftsy
If you have been around Sewhooked for any length of time, you know that I love whimsy and magic. Friendly Familiars is one of the original sets of patterns that were destined for the book-that-wasn’t. I can’t imagine a little witch or wizard worth his (or her!) salt not enjoying the company of a magical creature!
Wizard with Toad (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy
I always imagined this to be a little wizard with a toad he found in the garden. He also reminds me of one of my all time favorite Harry Potter characters, Neville Longbottom!
