Half Price Happy Tree!

Tree Trimming

Feel like making something Tree-ish?

Tree Trimming has been one of the most fun patterns that I have released “into the wild,” and certainly one of the most fun patterns that I’ve presented as a class!

The creative interpretations have been many and I never ceased to be amazed by the creative choices of fabrics and embellishments!

In the spirit of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, how about Sewhooked Saturday? My most popular pattern, Tree Trimming, is on sale now through November 30!

While perusing the Sewhooked flickr group today, I realized I might have a thing for designing trees.

Maybe…

Enjoy these flickr offerings along with the pattern links. And dearest flickr group? Thanks for the eye candy!

Buy it now on Craftsy!

I have a feeling that most of my long-time blog friends are going to look at these patterns and say to themselves, “Huh, I thought I’d seen those before…”

I admit it, it’s true. While working on Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends, I created these patterns and briefly posted them as free content. They have not been online in quite some time now, but emails about them have never stopped.  They’re back now, with newly updated easier to read, full-color patterns, just in time for a little bit of Christmas crafting!

These patterns were not included with the original set because the holiday theme just didn’t quite work. Even so, I adore these characters. They’re some of my absolute favorites!

Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends (Supplemental Set 1) – Holly Jolly includes Lil’ St. Nick, Santa’s Helper, Lil’ Mrs. Claus, Wonky Lil’ Christmas Tree and Wee Lil’ Penguin.

Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends are inspired by the classic Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam blocks, with a fun, whimsical twist!

Complete paper pieced patterns and sewing order for each. Pattern can be printed in color or gray scale.

5″ finished
patterns can be printed in color or gray scale

Included: 5  paper pieced block patterns with sewing order.

These patterns and others are super-easy to buy from the Sewhooked Shop as an instant PDF download with PayPal payment – completely secure shopping through E-junkie! If you feel more comfortable shopping through e-junking, you can go straight to my storefront there.

With your PDF download, you receive a 6 paper pieced patterns with seam allowance and stitching instructions.

A Holly Jolly Memory

Christmas Wall Hanging for Eric & Dominae

“Holly Jolly Christmas”
12″x13″ – 2008

Do you remember this little beauty?

It was a gift that I made for our friends Eric & Dominae. One of my favorite quilty sites, The Quilting Gallery, is having a contest called Holiday Traditions. There’s a small category and I decided that “Holly Jolly” would be the perfect quilt to enter.

The contest is open to small and large quilts and to any winter holiday and there are loads of fantastic prizes.  Go see and enter your own holiday quilt!
