Sunbonnet Sue Again – Monsters Afoot

stars

Here’s a summary: in late 2008, I was contracted to design patterns for a book.

I did.

Those patterns became Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends. The book was never published, the contract canceled by the publisher. In 2010, after a long healing process, I released the first batch of patterns from The Book That Never was.

For quite some time since I started selling my own patterns, I’ve been asked to break these sets up so that customers can buy just the characters they like most and not have to commit to an entire set.

Because I love you guys AND because I really do think it’s a great idea, this is my summer Sewhooked project!

I think need a snappy name for it.

Revisiting Sue?

More Magic?

Whatever you call it, there’s no denying I’ve avoided working on this for some time because part of the process for me is updating all the patterns, which brings back memories and that feeling of incompleteness I had following my book contract being canceled. Somehow, redesigning these patterns has been cathartic and RIGHT NOW feels like the time to do it. There will even be a few surprises along the way as I release never before published designs that weren’t originally included in any sets!

See all my Sunbonnet Sue Patterns here

The book version of these patterns were all shades of one color when printed because that’s what the publisher wanted. The new, updated versions are full color, updated to match my current style and, I think, are easier to follow.

Each set is being updated and each individual pattern, for the first time ever, will be available on Craftsy for just $2 each.

Monster Madness is the first updated set. If you’ve previously purchased Monster Madness and would like a copy of the updated set, please forward your receipt to sewhooked@gmail.com and I’d be happy to email you a copy of the new version. If you purchased on Craftsy, the pattern in your library will be automatically updated.

Thank you for joining on this journey down memory lane. I’m well into updating the next set of Sue’s friends and hope to have them ready for you by next week.

Have you made these or other patterns designed by me? I’d love to see them in the Sewhooked Flickr group!

Peace, Love, Pi

Peace, Love, Pi

During the craziness that was getting sewhooked.org and blog.sewooked.org consolidated into the Shiny New sewhooked.com, one of my newest designs, Peace, Love, Pi, slipped through the cracks of blog posting.

This spiffy new design was created to entertain my husband and son, both who love math and have great senses of humor. They love the design and once it’s quilted, it will quite possibly end up hanging in my husband’s office where he does magical things with computers all day long.

 

9 1/2″ X 21 1/2″

Includes 3 original

paper pieced patterns

plus sashing instructions.

One of the best parts about this pattern is it’s construction. It’s super simple, with 5″ (5.5″ unfinished) paper pieced patterns and simple sashing.

Added March 2012 – By popular request, Pi is available as a single pattern for just $2 on Craftsy!

Not into math but love the “Peace, Love” part of the pattern? Replace the bottom block with any 5″ square of your choice and create a statement about what you love!

How about….
