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!
In case you missed it, I have a pattern in Quilts From Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Fall 2013 – Buy it on Etsy!
As of October 1, all Sewhooked my patterns will be available exclusively as PDFs via Craftsy!
Have you made any of my patterns? I’d love to see them! Share a link or better yet, add them to the Sewhooked flickr group!
