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

Show & Tell - Jan 23, 09

Welcome to our first Friday Show and Tell. We are hoping that this will become a favorite with our readers and that many will participate by sharing projects they are working on now or have completed. Anyone can join in the fun. You DO NOT need to be a registered member to participate. This can be just photos or may include directions or tutorials. But you might want to use it to share something that has creatively inspired you or even a favorite corner in your house where you display your crafts or curl up and dream. We want to leave it very open. 

To participate in the Show and Tell, please enter your name (if you have a WeeFolkArt screen name it would be nice if you used it so we can get to know our members better) and a direct link to your project in the Mr. Linky Box below. Then leave a comment on this thread telling us something about the project you are sharing. Once you have your project listed, stop back throughout the weekend to visit all the other Show & Tell projects. Be sure...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

Valentine Brooch

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, who couldn't use a little heart? Check out our new Valentine Brooch in the Free Patterns. You say brooches aren't your thing?  No problem! 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!) We have several other Valentine's projects in the works so stop back often. Enjoy!

Dolly Sweater - Good to Go

I have completed the Small Doll Sweater and added it to our Free Patterns Section. It was custom designed to fit our 12" Waldorf style dolls (made from kits from Weir Dolls). When I get a chance I do plan to work on a larger size for bigger dolls... but that may be awhile. The TO-DO LIST is long and mighty.

Show and Tell Fridays

I wanted to share these great needlework pieces I recently dug out of storage. My mom made these while she was pregnant with me, and they hung in my nursery. I had them out briefly in our old house, but they have sadly been packed away for the past three years. I am so happy I remembered them though, when I decided I needed some artwork for the kid's kitchen area. Aren't they adorable?!

We would also like to take this opportunity to tell everyone about something new we are beginning next Friday. We are going to have a Show and Tell. We are inviting our registered members to share projects they have completed or are working on or fun ways they have displayed their handiwork. These do not need to be Wee Folk Art projects, but rather any that you feel our readership would be interested in viewing. We will be using Mr. Linky's Magical Widgets...more info about this next week...but this will give our members a chance to show off their talents!

We are also encouraging our readers to use Fridays to ask questions and make suggestions for projects they would like to see us...Read more
