Mrs. Claus Wee Lil Penguin

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.

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!

Paper Piecing: A little more Christmas

Lil’ St. Nick was such a hit that I had to give him some friends!  I hope you like Mrs. Claus and Santa’s Elf just as much.

While I’m here, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I rarely design a pattern with a final project in mind.   I draw whatever makes me happy and it ends up being wherever it needs to be.

Today, it’s Christmas!
