Grasshopper Applique Block

There are two things you should know right now. No... this is NOT a Christmas grasshopper. It's not like grasshoppers are jumping around all over the place here in the Midwest at this time of year. As a matter of fact, normally, we'd be buried under a blanket of snow and grasshoppers would be hidden away... wherever grasshoppers go when it snows. And second, left to my own devices, I would NEVER have designed a grasshopper. Not a fan. In my opinion, they are sneaky, ninja insects, that attack you when you're least expecting it. Then they have those claw like feet that hang on when you try to flick them off. And if they get annoyed... they spit tobacco on you... or at least that's what we called it when we were kids.

No... this grasshopper is a testament to our devotion to our readers. Someone needed a grasshopper to finish a project, so I could hardly say no. So, here, is our Grasshopper Applique Block. As always... made to fit a 6" x 6" block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. The Grasshopper Applique Block can be found HERE...Read more

Fabric Christmas Cards

I've been working on my Christmas cards this past week. I still have a handful to make but these are fun and easy and I'm hoping to be done this evening. These are the cards we will be giving to our friends and teachers. For this project I converted my mother's Christmas tree applique block into a fabric print that I ordered from Spoonflower. I plan to make some gift bags with the fabric as well. I sized the tree to fit perfectly on a quarter sheet of paper... but you can use any fun holiday fabric for this project. Check out the directions here or in our Free Patterns section.Read more

Today we are sharing our very first Christmas Cookie recipe sent in by Christy from Sweet Tidings. During the month of December we hope to share many Christmas Cookie Recipes. As a matter of fact, over the next year we hope to share many different recipes, often with the help from our readers. Michelle is working on creating a new data base to organize our recipes, and has created an adorable button... which will be finished tonight... that you can proudly display on your blog showing your recipe was featured on Wee Folk Art!


So, if you've ever shared a recipe in the past or if you do in the future, just grab the button. It will be available with our other buttons which you can access HERE...Read more
