Warm Holiday Wishes from Sewhooked

A very happy Christmas from my house to yours!

Hello, dear friends.

I hope this message finds you healthy and happy and that you’re getting to spend time with the people you love.

My family and I had an absolutely wonderful Christmas Day. My daughter had to work until after 6 pm, so we had a bit of a delayed start, but it was wonderful just the same. We had a house full of people, including both of our kids, and two dear friends of our family.
After lots of thinking, I've closed my #craftsy pattern store effective immediately. You can still find all of my free patterns on sewhooked.com under Free Patterns on the main menu. Paid patterns will continue to be available in my @etsy shop while I con

A quick reminder: my Holiday and Winter themed patterns are on sale through December 31. You can find those in my Etsy Pattern shop. I’ve decided to stay parked on Etsy for a while now that my Craftsy shop is closed. This will give me time to update patterns to reflect that change and to decide what’s next for Sewhooked.

Want some holiday freebies? I have those, too!

Have a wonderful rest of December. I’ll see you on January first for a Talk to Me Tuesday 501!

Smiling Santa Gift Bag Tutorial

If you’ve been around a while, you may remember the Smiling Santa Gift Bag tutorial I shared some time ago right here on Sewhooked.

Years ago, I would make these sweet felt gift bags for the kiddos in my life. Santa was one of my favorites, but I also made quite a others, too!

Here’s a photo from WAY BACK in 2000. Whew, thank goodness that Millineum thing turned out okay. 😉

For this design, I’ve taken my hand drawn Rudolph templates, played with them in EQ8, and created a 10″ pattern to share.

Please be gentle with me. Designing applique using software is brand new to me.

Make a quilt block, or use some felt and the Smiling Santa tutorial to make your own Rudolph bag! Want a printable Gift Bag tutorial? Get it here.

Free Pattern Friday – Smiling Santa Gift Bag

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

I’m doing something a little different today and sharing an updated version of a tutorial I wrote years ago.

Smiling Santa Giftbag was a “Way Back Craft” in 2008, originally created by me for my previous website in 2000.

2000. Wow!

This easy-peasy tutorial that can be completed entirely by hand or with a little sewing machine assistance if you’d like.

I’ve added a face shape template or you can wing the shape for your own unique Santa!
