New Pattern!

It's been a while, but I just completed a new applique pattern that I'm calling "In The Button Box". It's a table mat/topper, and is fairly simple to stitch up. It's also a good way to use WoolFelt scraps you may have on hand.

The pattern can be found in .pdf form in my Etsy and Craftsy shops (links below photos).

Enter If U Dare Blog Hop


A big thanks to Marian from Seams To Be Sew for bringing us another fun hop!

Here's the list of today's participants:

Monday Oct 23
Elizabeth Coughlin Designs (you are here!)

For this hop I came up with two small projects. 

This first is a WoolFelt ornament. I started with the idea of making a skull ornament. As I was drawing the skull, it occurred to me that if I turned it upside down, the same shape could be used as a ghost. So, I decided to make a double-sided ornament, with a skull on one side and a ghost on the other. It's very simple to make and uses only two colors of felt and two colors of embroidery floss.


And here's the free pattern for anyone who wants to make it!

The second project I made is a Jack O'Lantern Mug Rug.


It combines paper piecing and applique. The pumpkin and stem are paper pieced, and then the face, leaves and vine are appliqued on top.

If you'd like to make it, here's a link to the instructions and patterns. The instruction are not very detailed. I'm assuming you already know how to paper piece, applique, quilt and bind.
