Two New Freebies!

The very lovely and talented Jennifer Rowles put together the amazing Smartphone Quilt Along, now in it’s entirety over on Fandom in Stitches.

As with many of our events on Fandom in Stitches, we ended this one by throwing out an invite to our community to share supplemental designs for the project.

I thought it would be fun to design two of my favorite crafty apps to share with our community.

Both of these patterns are free and can also be found on Fandom in Stitches today as part of the #SMQAL Design Invitational!

Robert Kaufman Quilt Calculator is my go-to app for calculating binding. It has oodles of other features, but that is definitely my favorite!

This free pattern is 10″ Paper Pieced.

Tested version by Vanda Chittenden. Thanks, Vanda!

The Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Store App has been a lifesaver! I used to always forget my coupons, but now they are always available at the touch of a finger. Woo, technology!

This free pattern is also 10″ Paper Pieced.

Please enjoy!

Add it to your Ravelry Queue:

You’ll Need:

3 oz chunky/bulky weight yarn (or two strands of worsted)

Size K Hook

Note: fptr = Front Post Triple Crochet; bptr = Back Post Triple Crochet

Ch 4, join with sl st.

Round 1: Ch 1, hdc 12 times in ring, working over yarn tail. Join with a sl st at top of first hdc. Pull tail to tighten circle. (12 sts)

Round 2: Ch 1, 2 hdc in joining st and in each st around. Join with a sl st to the top of first hdc. (24 sts)

Round 3: Ch 1, hdc in joining st, 2 hdc in next st, (1 hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st); rep ( ) around. Join with a sl st to the top of first hdc. (36 sts)

*Note – I have a small head, and several people that have made this hat have let me know they needed to make it longer. To do so, repeat row 6 an additional round and row 9 an additional round. For more “bubble,” repeat round 5 one more time, then proceed with the instructions for round 9.

31 Days of Halloween – Vampires & Werewolves

31 Days of Halloween on sewhooked.com

It’s Monday, October 5, and that means another fun post for the 31 Days of Halloween right here on Sewhooked!

Today, I thought I’d share two free paper pieced patterns that I designed for fandominstitches.com, but that work beautifully well for Halloween, too!

Vampire Fangs Paper Pieced pattern by Jennifer Ofenstein, sewhooked.com

The first up is my Vampire Fangs pattern, designed with my vampire-loving friends in mind. I still love those chompers!

Vampire Fangs is 5 1/2″ (5″ finished) paper pieced and absolutely free!

Get the pattern here.

Prefer Craftsy? You can download it there, too! Team Jacob howling wolf pillow made for archerprenNext, how about a spooky Howling Wolf? While I imagine him as a werewolf, use your own imagination as to where he might fit in your Halloween plans. He’s shown here as part of a cushion I made for a friend ages quite some time ago. I still love that circle fabric in the border!

2004 - Frodo and Werewolf

Here is my own Howling Wolf, along with her little brother, Frodo, from way back in 2004!

The Howling Wolf pattern is 5 1/2″ (5″ finished) and absolutely free.

Get the pattern here.

If you prefer, download the pattern from Craftsy!
