Free Pattern Friday – Saving it for a Rainy Day!

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Back in July, I shared a Harry Potter inspired pattern each week. Today’s pattern was on my mind, but never quite made it to full pattern status!

For years now, I’ve had multiple people asking for a pattern for Hagrid’s Umbrella to supplement the Project of Doom. Quite a few people have made their own versions for their own Bookcase quilts, but we’ve never had a pattern submitted for sharing.

Sewhooked Suggestion Box (for non-fandom pattern suggestions)

Fandom in Stitches Pattern Suggestions

Since it kept coming up, I designed one for you! Do I want to make another Harry Potter quilt now? Yeah, I kinda do. Do I have time? Absolutely not!

I present Hagrid’s Flowery Pink Umbrella, 10″ x 25″ paper pieced, designed by me, tested by Loretta Sitkiewicz Nardi & Jo Minvielle.

This is my daughter’s umbrella. I borrowed it for a little photo shot and then asked my fellow designers & pattern testers which photo they liked best. This one won by a long shot.

Notice my Arthur Weasley stitch in the background. Pattern available on the Harry Potter Archive on Fandom in Stitches under Quotes. 😛

This gives you an idea as to how this pattern can be used. I hope you enjoy it!

I had two wonderful testers for this pattern!

Free Pattern Friday – Awareness

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Hello, my friends.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but as anyone who has ever been affected by breast cancer or literally any other kind of cancer knows, you don’t need an official calendar month to be aware.

There is so much more I could say here, but suffice it to say, that this is a battle we all share. ♥

I share today’s patterns with that in mind.

Some years ago, a lovely woman named Grace asked if I could design a bikini top for a quilt she’d be donating to a fundraiser to support Save the Tatas.

Below, you’ll find an updated version of the Bikini Top, plus my Heart with a Cause pattern. Both are 5″ and can be easily enlarged if you so choose.

Free Pattern Friday – Nellie Narwhal

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today, we delve back into the Sewhooked Suggestion Box!

This one comes from Kristel, who you may know from Talk to Me Tuesday. You can also find her on Instagram as @clumsykristel.

Kristel requested a Narwhal to paper piece.  She also tested this fun pattern for me!

A narwhal is basically a unicorn whale. I know!! It’s absolutely real and very unusual looking. I couldn’t resist making it just a little cutesy!

Nellie Narwhal (named with the help of my daughter) is available to paper piece in 5″ and 10″. There are two versions of the 5″ pattern, one with embroidered face and one with paper pieced face. Make whichever size and version will work best for you!

Free Pattern Friday – Descent

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today, I’m pleased to be sharing a pattern that started out as a bit of a doodle during the planning stage of Rainbow Cascade.

Descent is a 10″ pattern to paper piece. It looks much more difficult than it really is. I hope you’ll give it a try!

de·scent
dəˈsent/Submit
noun
1.
an action of moving downward, dropping, or falling.

Free Pattern Friday – Fall Placemat Projects

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

I often share optional quilt layouts and other suggestions with blocks for inspiration.

For this’s week’s freebie, I jumped in my TARDIS and I traveled in time to a few years ago when I shared the following ideas, as ideas only, for a blog hop.

These fun fall themed placemats are now together in one complete pattern! Pattern document includes project instructions, 2 different pumpkin patterns, maple leaf pattern,  paper pieced nine patch (because it’s way easier than cutting out 2 3/16″ squares!), and layout charts for both projects.

Enjoy, and don’t forget to share your photos with the Sewhooked Facebook Group!

Free Pattern Friday – Friend Gnome

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

I have, somewhat surprisingly (to me at least!), had several requests for gnome patterns pop up in the Sewhooked Suggestion Box.

Not being a gnome connoisseur myself, I first had to do a little research.

‘Muggles have garden gnomes, too, you know,’ Harry told Ron as they crossed the lawn.
‘Yeah, I’ve seen those things they think are gnomes,’ said Ron, bent double with his head in a peony bush. ‘Like fat little Father Christmases with fishing rods …’

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

If you’ve been around for a while, you probably know I have a long running love affair with Sunbonnet Sue and her many magical cousins. I’ve been drafting Sue-styled patterns for many years now, but always with my own twist.

With that in mind, I introduce Friend Gnome, a 6″ block to paper piece, inspired by my love of Sunbonnet Sue. This little pattern is quite simple and would be a good second or third project for a beginner looking to make a pattern with a few more pieces.

He doesn’t have a fishing pole, but perhaps one of his potential brothers will!

Free Pattern Friday – Holiday House 2017

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

After a week away from Free Pattern Friday for charity work, I’m back with a fun favorite, Holiday House!

Holiday House was first shared as part of a blog hop back in 2011. I’ve updated the pattern for 2017, adding a 10″ version for your piecing pleasure!

I can’t help but think that Holiday House would make a fantastic block swap!
