Okay, fandom? Okay.

Okay? Okay.

I get a lot of emails from readers of both Sewhooked & Fandom in Stitches and one of the comments I receive more than any other is “why aren’t your fandom patterns on Sewhooked?”

Well, isn’t that a good question?

Back in 2012, I split Sewhooked in two when I established Fandom in Stitches. My collection of fandom patterns designed by myself and my friends had grown so huge that it was actually crashing my website. After a lot of rearranging, I eventually decided that those fandom patterns needed a home of their own.

Everything that was Harry Potter Paper Piecing, the Twilight Block of the Month (designed by Cat Magraith), and a slew of other fandom-themed patterns by both myself and my designer friends were the beginning of Fandom in Stitches.

When I split Sewhooked, I moved all those fandom patterns to make Sewhooked friendlier and easier to navigate. The unanticipated side effect is that you, my beloved and loyal readers, often don’t realize that I design for more than one website, so when I share a pattern like The Fault In Our Stars: Okay? Okay. (above), you may never see it.

So, by popular request, I have compiled my collection of fandom-themed patterns designed by me and put them together on their own page here on Sewhooked!

Each and every one is absolutely free for your personal & non-profit use.

Way Back Craft: An Edward Just For You

I’ve been walking down memory lane and plundering my old forum posts. I don’t post much to crafty forums anymore, mostly because I like the “not having rules” part that comes with posting to my own blog. 😉

This Way Back Craft has had some of the greatest comments of both love and hate, including the dubious honor of having once been featured on Craftastrophe.  Poor Edward was referred to there as a toilet paper cover. Fortunately for me, I have pretty thick skin and a sense of humor, so I took it with a grain of salt, which is exactly the vein in which Edward Puppet Pal was made.

What I didn’t say in the following forum post is that I also included a list of Edward’s catch phrases, so he would always have the right thing to say at just the right time! See, sense of humor. 😉

You can see my original crafter post here. Edward Puppet Pal was part of the same swap as the Team Edward t-shirt that was immortalized in my first freezer paper stenciling video. You don’t know comments until you post a video on YouTube with the word “Twilight” anywhere in the tags, title or description. Viva la haters!

I made this for silverfisch for the Twilight Swap Round 2 (gallery).  It’s Edward Cullen, from Stephenie Meyers’ Twilight, inspired by The Potter Puppet Pals.

He’s made out of felt, with fabric paint details on his face.  I really just eyeballed the whole pattern, figuring it out as I went along.  I hope you like him!

I made the button on my buttonmaker, with a little help from some poly glitter!

The rest of the swap…

Happy Crafting!

Paper Piecing: Custom Pattern Auction For Charity

The awesome organizers over at help_haiti on Livejournal have found a great way to get fandom (all fandoms!) involved in raising money for charity while getting fun stuff in return.

Crafters, graphic artist, writers and all sorts of other awesome people are donating their time and talents in return for charitable donations.   You can bid in the comments of the item you’re interested in and once the auction is closed on noon (EST) January 20, 2010, the items will be paid for by donating to charity!  Share your receipt and get awesome goodness in return.  The charities win and you win, too!

I’m offering up one Custom Designed 5″ Paper Pieced Quilt Pattern. You can read the full details here.  Be sure to bid in the comments at this link.  I cannot accept bids here.

Also check out these awesome auctions by two of my crafty friends:

Amber (hp5freak) is auctioning off a 3’x3′ custom crochet blanket. She makes gorgeous and unique HP-themed blankets. You can see those here.

Mary (dragonsinger954) is the maker of many a fine Molly Weasley sweater.  She’s offering a custom-made one up right here. You can see examples of her many lovely Molly sweaters here.

Also, the Queen of The Leaky Cauldron herself is auctioning off one autographed copy of Harry, A History.  It’s a good thing, too, because you can’t have mine!

Happy bidding and thanks for supporting this wonderful cause!
