Project Three : Block-work Hat I designed this hat project to help us review everything we have learned so far. This hat requires you to complete casting on, knitting, binding off and seaming multiple times. For this project you will need to make 4 rectangular blocks. Two will be completedRead More →

Newbie Knitting: Project One Updates! I had some corrections to make and wanted to get some better photos up. Sorry for any confusion. We had out of town guests all week and Pixie’s birthday this weekend! I didn’t get a chance to edit like I normally do. This week’s assignmentRead More →

I started to answer this question in response to a comment I received yesterday but I thought that it might warrant it’s own post. I know I’ve been linking to a site called Ravelry a lot lately in conjunction with all my knitting projects. But if you are not alreadyRead More →

Anyone who knows me well, knows I NEVER make “just enough” food for dinner. When I make chicken soup, you would think I planned to feed the villagers… and, in fact, sometimes I do 🙂 But here is my philosophy… it really doesn’t take that much more time to makeRead More →

EDIT: This giveaway is now closed. The winner can be found HERE. Several weeks ago, when I was wandering the aisles of Etsy, I stumbled upon a new shop that I feel in love with. It was Jupiter's Child. On Facebook, I shared a beautiful Waldorf Inspired Wooden tree. I thought it would lookRead 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 →

The other day I shared our latest gnomes… the Old World Wooden Gnomes. In the past we’ve made Peg Gnomes, Knit Gnomes, Sewn Baby Gnome Dolls, and Michelle even designed Gnome Pillow Panels that you can buy from Spoonflower to sew and stuff. So, it only seems natural that we would eventually have gotten around to making wooden gnomes 🙂 NOTE: ForRead More →

Thanks to one everyone that entered this giveaway from Enchanted World of Needle Felting. Marie's work is so soft and peaceful, that it would be a joy to own anything she makes 🙂 So, of course, we would like to thank Marie for her talents and generosity. And now… the winner is… SubmittedRead More →

Think of this as our “close up” of the Monkey Madness Applique Block. Wouldn’t this look great centered on a bib or a onesie? Blow it up a bit, and put it on your 8 year old’s t-shirt. Blow it up a lot, and make a throw pillow. Shrink it,Read More →

In an ongoing quest to keep Pixie in coloring pages, I just added our Little Birdies Coloring Page, inspired by our Little Birdie Applique Block, inspired by our Little Birdies Eye Case. I love these Little Birdies. I added a limb of a tree, and I think the three look veryRead More →

My mom has this thing for scarves and shawls. Once the temperature dips below 70 degrees (not kidding) she starts layering them on. She can be seen wearing 2 or 3 at a time… in the house. Mocking aside… for Christmas a couple years ago I bought her a beautiful,Read More →

Yesterday I shared our Bear in the Water Applique Block. I designed it for one of our readers whose boys are studying bears right now. Actually, they wanted a coloring page, but since I was designing that, it was easy peasy to make the applique, too. So here is our littleRead More →

A couple of days ago, when the crew was over for Sunday dinner, Pixie asked for a copy of our Primitive Angel Coloring Page to paint. I ran off a copy on water color paper, and she used the water color pencils to color it in. When she was done,Read More →

I have a confession to make… I am an infant swaddler! Give me a crying infant that has been feed and changed and still is fussing, I swaddle. In my experience, most infants enjoy the security of being swaddled and almost instantly relax. I highly recomment you do a quick Google search on the benefits of swaddling an infant.Read More →

I got a chance to make Bug a darker vest for his pirate costume (check out the pirate shirt un-pattern here) and took a bunch of pictures along the way. Here is the Dress Up Vest Un-Pattern or you can find it in our Free Patterns Section. I will alsoRead More →

We are calling this the Pirate Shirt UN-PATTERN. I totally winged this pattern and don’t have the normal step-by-step photos you have come to love about WeeFolkArt (although there are still a good handful). There was a lot of just fudging it that went on and fortunately Pirate Shirts areRead More →
