Free Pattern Friday – Sweet Sue Tops The Tree

 

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Happy Friday, friends!

Today, we’re getting a bit nostalgic and I’m sharing Sweet Sue Tops the Tree, designed back in 2011 for the Celebrate Christmas Quilt Along hosted by Michele Foster. You can find all the blocks from a variety of talented designers here.

Sweet Sue is 12″ paper pieced. Enjoy!

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!

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!

Some Real Things

In an effort to 1) clean out my overflowing sample bins and 2) help my kiddo pay for her college expenses, I’m doing something I rarely do.

I’m selling stuff I made.

Patterns? Sure, I sell those all the time, and nothing gives me more pleasure than being able to share those with you.

There’s something just a little different about selling projects that I worked on with my hot little hands. Everything I work on evokes memories and feels like a little piece of me.

My kiddo is worth it and I have far more samples than I will ever, ever need. Most of these things are one of a kind and the grand majority of them were for The Book That Wasn’t. It feels good to share them with you and move on to new things!

These are the first few goodies I’ve got up for offer:

Tooth Fairy Door Hanger

Tooth Fairy Door Hanger

Dollar included…because why not?! I came up with this idea after the Tooth Fairy was constantly misplacing the pillow each of my kiddos used to put their lost teeth in.

Garden Fairy Tote

Garden Fairy Tote Bag

I seriously love this bag…click through to see the inside and back. Inspired by fairies…and fabric!

Saturday Morning Monster Movie Wall Hanging

Saturday Morning Monster Movie Wall Hanging

A combination of Monster Madness and Classic Films…love this piece. As a kid, I loved watching black and white monster movies on Saturday morninings.

Three Witches Log Cabin Table Runner

Three Witches Log Cabin Table Runner

If Mrs. Weasley was going to have a table runner…

Sweet Skating Sue

Sweet Skating Sue Wall Hanging

She really is sweet…I loved quilting her, too!

Summer Sue Makeover Continues!

It’s September now, and while hints of autumn may be in the air other places in the world, in Austin it’s still hot and sticky and feels like summer!

It’s a good thing, too, because the Summer Sue Makeover to update Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends is not quite done!

Today I bring you two updated sets from the Way Back files: Fanciful Fairies and Friendly Familiars. Both sets have been completely updated, and as with the previously updated set, each individual block is now available as a stand alone pattern exclusively from Craftsy!

How much do I love Sunbonnet Sue? She has her own page here on Sewhooked!

Fanciful Fairies includes 6 full color patterns of sweet fairies!

 

Tooth Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

My personal favorite is the Tooth Fairy. She’s a busy little lady!

Tulip Fairy (paper pieced), $2 on Craftsy

The Tulip Fairy always makes me think of my sister. Tulips are her favorite flower!

Rose Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Rose Fairy reminds you to take time for the sweet things in life.

Flower Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Flower Fairy is bringing a smile to a friend.

Fairy Godmother (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Everyone needs a Fairy Godmother!

Daisy Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Daisy Fairy is a close second for my favorite. I just love how she’s perched so sweetly!

Bonus Pattern! Water Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Water Fairy is a bonus pattern not included with the set. When I was originally drafting these patterns several years ago for a book that ended up not being published, she was an extra that didn’t make the cut. Here she is now, in her sweet glory!

Friendly Familiars (Paper Pieced Blocks) , $7 on Craftsy

If you have been around Sewhooked for any length of time, you know that I love whimsy and magic.  Friendly Familiars is one of the original sets of patterns that were destined for the book-that-wasn’t. I can’t imagine a little witch or wizard worth his (or her!) salt not enjoying the company of a magical creature!

Wizard with Toad (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

I always imagined this to be a little wizard with a toad he found in the garden. He also reminds me of one of my all time favorite Harry Potter characters, Neville Longbottom!

Wizard with Snake (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Snakes tend to be associated with evil. Bad boys need friends, too, right?

Wizard with Rat (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

The question that I ask myself about this pattern is what this Wizard is about to do. I’m voting for conjuring cheese for his rat!

Witch with Owl (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Owls are just magical by nature, aren’t they? This little witch is whispering secrets to her feathery friend!

Witch with Cat (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Cats are by far my own favorite magical creature, having had quite a few of my own over the years!

There are still two sets to be updated: Busy Bodies and Wand Wielders. They’re in progress and I hope to have them to you soon! After that, I hope to have some NEW Sues to share!
