Flower Applique Block

One of things Michelle and I want to include on our site is a data base of various applique patterns. Sometimes they will be designs we are using for a specific project, and sometimes they will just be an applique we designed just for fun! Hopefully, over time, this will become a resource where people can come to get applique patterns or ideas. Whenever we feature an applique, we will include the pdf. Enlarge or reduce the pattern to fit your needs. This week's pattern is a simple 5 petal flower with 2 leaves. It features a blanket stitch and stem stitch. Keep an eye on our Applique Data Base to see new patterns. Get pattern here.  

Note about patterns: We are sharing patterns we have designed and made for our own children, families and friends. Every effort is made to share information in a clear and accurate manner. We offer preemptive apologies for any mistakes that may be made. Please let us know via comments or emails if you stumble upon a mistake or if you encounter...Read more

Valentine Necklace

The directions are now complete for turning our Valentine Brooch into our Valentine Necklace. I made the necklace first, and as an after thought, removed the heart and turned it into a brooch. When Fairy came over, she was heartbroken. She loved the necklace. Well, it took Gammy about 2 minutes to get the heart reattached, wipe a tear, and get it back around Fairy's neck...which she now officially has "dibs" on! So, the choice is yours...brooch or necklace. If you're making it for a child, I'm willing to bet the necklace will be a hit! The directions can be found in the Free Patterns. Enjoy!Read more

Use the pattern as an applique on anything that screams for a little bling! Later this week I'll show you how to turn the Valentine Brooch into a totally fun necklace. (Fairy absolutely adores it!)

Heeere's Horace!


As promised, I completed the pattern and directions for our Puppy Dog Doorstop, Horace. Although I love the Kitty Cat Doorstop, Jasper, I'm a dog person, and this little guy just tickles my fancy! In the directions I included the felt and embroidery floss colors I used, but go wild with your own interpretation!

Although Horace and Jasper were designed to be doorstops, they would make wonderful softies for the wee ones! When making them as toys, leave out the beans or sand and fill to the brim with fluff! Check out the directions in our
Crafting Club Patterns. If you happen to make one of these little guys, make sure to take a pic and include on our Wee Folk Art Crafting Flickr Pool. Enjoy!...Read more
