L’amour sous la Tour Eiffel, updated

eiffel title

Hello, dear friends!

I’m happy to share that I’ve updated one of my most popular patterns, L’amour sous la Tour Eiffel! I’ve had a number of requests to add fabric amounts and to color this pattern. For your sewing convenience, both of those things are now done! I have also tweaked the pattern to make it a bit more symmetrical.

Originally inspired by my daughter’s international travels, L’amour sous la Tour Eiffel is available on Etsy for $2.95.

Have you already purchased this pattern? Download the update for free right from Etsy! If you bought this pattern on Craftsy, email your receipt (or a screencap of it in your Craftsy library) and I will happily send this updated version right to your inbox! As a reminder, my patterns are no longer be available on Craftsy. Here’s why.

One keen quilter asked for a sample rainbow quilt inspired by L’amour sous la Tour Eiffel! How fun is that? You could go much bigger if you desired (see link below!). This simple version includes multiple colors of the Eiffel Tower with 2″ sashing and cornerstones.

Are there other patterns you’d like to see updated or would like to see a quilt mock-up for? Let me know!

Talk to you again soon!

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!

Regarding Changes at Craftsy

Big changes are afoot at Craftsy, and if you are following any independent designers on social media or via their blogs & websites, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about it over the last few days.

For those of you who haven’t heard, Craftsy sent emails to all of their designers, including me, on December 19 to let us know that they are drastically changing the platform.

Many designers are losing their shops entirely. No questions, no ability to petition for a second chance.

Other designers, like me, received a message saying that we can keep our shop, but that some of our patterns may be deleted. There is no list of patterns that may be excluded from our shops.

Stores will be purged or locked down on December 28, depending on whether or not designers are being cut. My understanding is that the remaining shops will be frozen until some time in 2019, meaning those designers who do make the cut won’t have access to change their stores.

We were hit with this all at once. No chance for input, no time to process with just Dec 19 – 28 to figure it all out.

Here is the FAQ they have created for this change.

Because of the past ease of using Craftsy, most of my paid pattern business was built on their platform. Losing control over my pattern business is not an option. I am an independent designer and have been since I started down this path many years ago. I do everything myself from designing, writing, communicating with pattern testers, editing, publishing, promoting, etc.

Effective immediately, my Craftsy shop is closed. 

As of the writing of this post, I have deleted 261 patterns from my Craftsy pattern shop, both free and for sale. There is a lot of work ahead of me to remove & change all the links on Sewhooked and to find appropriate new homes for all of my patterns. Please know that I will get all of this sorted out, but it is going to take a considerable effort and a lot of time.

On that note, Craftsy says on the FAQ linked above that customers will continue to have access to purchased patterns which have been purged will be able to print or save those PDF files. However, if at some point this because an issue for you, please feel free to send your receipt to me at sewhooked@gmail.com and I will be happy to send the pattern or patterns you purchased to you directly.

All of my FREE patterns are still available right here on Sewhooked. You can access them to print or save. See FREE PATTERNS in the menu above. There are several menu options to choose from.

For the time being, all of my paid patterns will be in my Etsy shop. If you’re looking for a pattern not currently listed, please get in touch and I will add it for you. I am looking into several other possible platform options as I decide what to do next.

As of right now, my Craftsy & Share-A-Sale links no longer work. If you need help finding a pattern, please contact me. Be patient as you wait for replies. 

Sewhooked is no longer a Craftsy affiliate effective December 22, 2018.

For the time being, I’ll be enjoying my family as much as possible for the holidays and I hope you get to do the same.

In Stitches,

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.
