Halloween Round-up!

Hello, my dear friends!

I haven’t shared anything aside from Talk To Me Tuesday since having surgery, and since it is October, my favorite month, I couldn’t resist doing a roundup of my own Halloween and fall patterns and tutorials!

I’ve included both Free Patterns & Retired shop patterns below. As a compromise for those who want access to my previously for sale patterns, I will share the pattern of your choice for a small donation to a local-to-you non-profit. More info below with the Retired Patterns.

To date, wonderful quilters have donated over $300 to a wide variety of charities, donated food, clothing, and hundreds of masks to those who need them. Your charitable efforts make my heart swell with happiness and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

What are your favorite things to make for Halloween? I’d love to see! Let me know in comments or share over in the Sewhooked Facebook Group! You can also tag me on Instagram – @sewhookedjen.

RETIRED SHOP PATTERNS

I retired my online quilt pattern shop December 31, 2019 but I still receive quite a few requests for retired patterns.I decided the best way to address that was to have those interested in a retired pattern make a small donation to a local-to-you non-profit of your choice. Email your receipt and I’ll be happy to send the pattern. Please, only one pattern per receipt. 

If you’re unsure if a pattern is FREE (I have loads of those, check out the main menu on sewhooked.com), or RETIRED, just drop me an email or comment and I’ll let you know.

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!

Crafts of Halloweens Past: Quilty Goodness!

Trick or Treat Sue

Let’s be honest, most of you are here because of the quilts.

I’m totally okay with that.

While I do have many for sale patterns, I have many, many free ones.

Whimsical, fun, happy patterns are my favorite to create. To be frank (or Jennifer, as the case may be!), I make what I like. It’s as plain and simple as that. Making what I like makes me happy, and hopefully, you will feel that when you’re working on a pattern that I designed. If not, then I’m clearly doing it wrong!

Trick-or-Treat Sue, up at the top of this post, was created for a blog hop hosted by Soma over on Whims & Fancies last October.

She’s 10″ paper pieced and can be downloaded right here or over on Craftsy. This sweet Sue is just one of the over 50 magical Sunbonnet Sues that I’ve designed over the years. You can find all of her Magical Friends right here!

If you’re looking for even more quilty goodness for Halloween, try one of these blasts from the past, designed by me and available on the Harry Potter page over on my other site, Fandom In Stitches (click the image for the free pattern!):

Pumpkin cauldron

There are many, MANY more where these came from!

To make reliving the Crafts of Halloween Past even more fun for you, I’m offering a challenge with a prize!

Quilts from 100 Blocks, Fall 2013

At the end of the month, I’ll draw a winner to receive a free copy of Quiltmaker’s Quilts from 100 Blocks, which includes my pattern Corn Maze!

I Want My Mummy

I Want My Mummy on Craftsy

Nah, I’m not having a nervous breakdown from all the stuff on my proverbial plate!

It’s the end of September, which means my favorite month, OCTOBER, is almost here! Cooler weather, soup, the possibility of wearing my favorite sweater and and and…HALLOWEEN!

After the recent epic revamp of Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends, a few “friends” seemed to be missing! Notably among them was a mummy for Monster Madness.

So here he is as a bonus pattern not included in the original set: I Want My Mummy!

Monster Madness on Craftsy

Now, the question is, what other Magical Sue is still wandering around the ephemeral parts of my noggin waiting to come out?!

Reminder: ALL Sewhooked printed patterns are 1/2 price on ETSY (no coupon needed) and will be gone after September 30. That’s a week from yesterday…eek!

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.
