Surprise! I’m not a great secret keeper (understatement noted), so it’s been driving me crazy not to share the progress of our new web design with you guys.

With the high temps we’ve been having this summer, many of my poor flowers are showing the strain. But here, appliqued on black felt, a garden of rainbow flowers are bright and perky! Made entirely with one small petal, these flowers look awesome together but one by itself would lookRead More →

I was working on project (which I will share later in the week) and I needed a moon and stars applique. I was rather surprised I had never designed one for Wee Folk Art, but since I needed to design one now, I made one up as an applique block. Designed to fitRead More →

With the 4th of July just days away, here in the USA, many streets and buildings proudly display our flag and many flag based decorations. Today we are sharing our version of the flag… an applique with lots of "heart" for our nation 🙂 My plan was to turn this intoRead More →

Several weeks ago one of our readers asked if we take requests for applique blocks. Basically I think I told her, "Absolutely, if it's something I want to make 🙂 " In other words, ask me to design a computer keyboard… probably won't get to that. But ask me toRead More →

Although most of the country seems to be cloudy and moist right now, there is a chance that we will be experiencing sunny days soon. I thought we could all use a little sunshine about now, so here is our latest applique block. As always, it was designed to fitRead More →

There have been many interesting ideas of how to use the design in the Little Birdies Eye Case for other projects. But then I thought, I might be thinking too small! It occurred to me that these little guys could, and should, be included in our Applique Blocks. So, IRead More →

When I hear “retro”, I think 1968. I was in 8th grade, and just becoming aware of things beyond my ken. A war was raging, the youth were protesting, girls were wearing mini skirts, boys were letting their hair grow long, and phrases like “Make Love Not War” and “Flower Power”Read More →

Back when Michelle was in high school, her and a group of her friends decided to have a "formal" girls night out. Most of the girls had boyfriends, but they decided it would be fun to get all dressed up, go to a lovely restaurant, and party WITHOUT boys. And,Read More →

We all have a collection of "basic" things. The "basic" black dress, the "basic" muffin recipe, and the "basic" sock pattern. These "basics" have proven to be dependable, familiar, and most importantly, adaptable. "Basics" can be altered slightly, tweaked and accessorized to create a different look or taste. "Basics" are theRead More →
