A Pattern for YOU!



Well, from the beginning there was interest in a pattern but I just didn't have the time to get it together. Is this a good time to mention that when I make an original pattern, I generally don't make a copy of it? Since most of my patterns are hand-drawn rather than generated on a computer, once I make the pattern, it's gone. I'm thinking that might need to change......

Anyway, apparently this has been making the rounds on Pinterest and there have been a number of new requests. As a thank you to everyone who comes by my little blog for a visit, I finally wrote up a pattern!


It's not slick or fancy and it does assume that you know the basics of paper-piecing. But I hope a few of you find it a fun little project. 

***Edit: For those of you who have commented or emailed that you're able to access the instructions but not the pattern - the pattern is on the instruction sheet. There is only one page and it's all there. Really! :-)

Now that the kids are back in school, I'm finding a little bit of extra time to be creative. What are you working on right now?

  6. Hi again! Just discussed your cute nametag with other members of the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild Board and wanted to get your permission to do a group activity during our October meeting using your pattern for our nametags. If this is fine with you we will give you credit as the designer and will link back to your blog when we post about it. Please let me know if this is okay with you! :)

  11. Hi,
    the pattern is adorable but I can't manage to download it. It opens up in google docs but I can only see the cover page with the instructions. Can someone check it out too? Thanks

  16. Hello Monkey Beans,
    I printed the page at 100 per cent for the Sewing Machine. Is this the exact pattern? I don't know what the finished size should be and also what were you using to draw the thread and needle and fly wheel please - oh I guess that is embroidery floss. Can we get bigger sizes by adding scaling? Please contact me privately at AngelKruiser1@yahoo.com or on FB. Thank you
