31 Days of Halloween – Monster Madness!

31 Days of Halloween on sewhooked.com

Welcome to October 2, Day 2 of 31 Days of Halloween right here on Sewhooked!

Each Friday in October, I’ll be featuring some of my Halloween-inspired patterns that are available for sale in my Craftsy shop.

Not to worry, free goodies return tomorrow and will be around until next Friday’s Craftsy feature!

Monster Madness!

Today, I am revisiting a set of old favorites, Monster Madness!

These five classy guys are part of Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends, my Sunbonnet Sue inspired magical (and monster!) series.

How much do I love Sunbonnet Sue? I have an entire page of patterns dedicated to her!

In the Monster Madness set you get 5″ color patterns with sewing order of the following patterns for just $6:

Want just one? Each pattern is also available individually for $2.95 by clicking the links above!

Sunbonnet Sue Again – Monsters Afoot


Here’s a summary: in late 2008, I was contracted to design patterns for a book.

I did.

Those patterns became Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends. The book was never published, the contract canceled by the publisher. In 2010, after a long healing process, I released the first batch of patterns from The Book That Never was.

For quite some time since I started selling my own patterns, I’ve been asked to break these sets up so that customers can buy just the characters they like most and not have to commit to an entire set.

Because I love you guys AND because I really do think it’s a great idea, this is my summer Sewhooked project!

I think need a snappy name for it.

Revisiting Sue?

More Magic?

Whatever you call it, there’s no denying I’ve avoided working on this for some time because part of the process for me is updating all the patterns, which brings back memories and that feeling of incompleteness I had following my book contract being canceled. Somehow, redesigning these patterns has been cathartic and RIGHT NOW feels like the time to do it. There will even be a few surprises along the way as I release never before published designs that weren’t originally included in any sets!

The book version of these patterns were all shades of one color when printed because that’s what the publisher wanted. The new, updated versions are full color, updated to match my current style and, I think, are easier to follow.

Each set is being updated and each individual pattern, for the first time ever, will be available on Craftsy for just $2 each.

Monster Madness is the first updated set. If you’ve previously purchased Monster Madness and would like a copy of the updated set, please forward your receipt to sewhooked@gmail.com and I’d be happy to email you a copy of the new version. If you purchased on Craftsy, the pattern in your library will be automatically updated.

Thank you for joining on this journey down memory lane. I’m well into updating the next set of Sue’s friends and hope to have them ready for you by next week.

Have you made these or other patterns designed by me? I’d love to see them in the Sewhooked Flickr group!
