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!

A free Sue for You

Hogwarts Sue 2013

Hogwarts Sue

also available on Craftsy!

a free 5″ pattern to paper piece!

Today I’d like to share something that’s kind of special to me in an unusual way. I’m sharing this post on Sewhooked and on Fandom in Stitches, both of my quilting blogs, something I rarely ever do. 

There’s a good reason for the unusual post, promise!

As many of you already know, about five years ago, I was contracted to design a book full of magical Sunbonnet Sue patterns. Sadly, the book was never published. Despite that setback, I eventually designed almost 60 Sue patterns. Those patterns became the backbone of my pattern company and blog, Sewhooked.

Like Sunbonnet Sue? 

There’s an entire page of free and for sale patterns on Sewhooked!

 Hogwarts Sue was never part of the book idea, but she was inspired by the theme and is a pattern from The Good Old days before Fandom In Stitches existed. Back then, all my patterns were free and were shared through to Sewhooked and Harry Potter Paper Piecing.

Hogwarts Sue has been retired for quite some time and Harry Potter Paper Piecing is now Fandom In Stitches. It’s time for me to welcome back Hogwarts SueShe’s a little bit Sewhooked and a little bit Fandom In Stitches.

To celebrate this sweet coming together of my two blogs, I’m giving away a free set of your choice from Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends to one person that makes Hogwarts Sue and posts her to the Fandom In Stitches flickr group and/or Sewhooked flickr group!

You can only win on one time, but you’re welcome to double your chances and share with both groups!

Winner to be announced Tuesday, September 17, 2013.

Friendly Familiars

Wizard with Rat

Witch with Owl Wizard with Snake

Wizard with Toad Witch with Cat

There’s just something a little extra magical about a story with animals in it. Perhaps it’s how they seem to perceive our needs and be our friends, without ever being able to verbally communicate. Maybe it’s because they’re cute or maybe, just maybe, it’s because we see something simple and appealing when we look at our cat curled up in a spot of sunshine.

Enter Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends (Set 4) – Friendly Familiars: Wizard with Rat, Witch with Owl, Witch with Cat, Wizard with Snake and Wizard with Toad.

Momma Witch Twin Wizards Trendy Witch Cloaked Wizard

Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends Set 2 – Wand Wielders is here!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve typed “Wand Weirdos” today…maybe that’s what I should have called this set!

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

The patterns were originally designed for a book that I was contracted for. When that contract fell through, I thought long and hard about what to do with the awesome patterns I’d created. They’ve been hiding out long enough and it’s now time to share these fun, whimsical patterns that I love with the rest of the world! (Want to hear the whole story? I talk about it in this video.)

Wand Weilders includes 8 patterns: Buckled Boots Wizard, Cloaked Wizard, Long-Haired Witch, Momma Witch, Tatty Wizard, Trendy Witch, Twin Wizards and Wee Witch

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

Included: 8 paper pieced block patterns with sewing order.
