These newest additions by Betty Gormick are sure to make you smile. And, talk about instant gratification – all of them can be made in an afternoon!
These three Cut Loose Press™ patterns require templates that are too big to fit on a traditional Cut Loose Press™ pattern, so we decided to try something new! The full-sized template sheets are accessed through a link included in the pattern. Since they are the right size, you can print them right onto a product like Print N Fuse (Wonder Under cut into 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets so it can be run through a printer). No tracing is required!
These projects are great choices for classes or kits. Why not include the pattern, templates printed on Print N Fuse, and fabric in a kit. Just remember, you can only give them the templates if they purchase the pattern – talk about great customer service!
This wreath finishes to a whopping 18″ and also teaches how to make a fabric bow.
Why not add these Make It/Take Its to your class schedule today?
Sew Cherished has added more banner designs to their line. The Summer garland will be arriving early next month

‘Tis The Season
Snowflake Squad. I blew this one up as far as I could so you can see the detail and personality in her patterns.
These patterns are all designed to work with the Circle Garland by Kraft Klub.
The garland include seven 5 inch round chalkboard circles and is 67 1/2″ long. Simply make quilt blocks or wool work of your choice and affix them with magnets. The circles have a chalkboard finish you can write on with chalk, too.
Where the Sun Shines is due in early next month. The rest are in stock now. What a great way to use up wool scraps! Wouldn’t they make great individual ornaments or gift tags as well?
Wanda the Witch Gnome Mug Rug Kit includes all of the fabric and notions you need to make one mug rug along with a precut fused gnome cut out and ready to assemble!! All you need is thread and a small amount of time. Great to make as a gift, give the kit as a gift to someone who loves to sew, or keep for yourself!
There are a multitude of choices – all due to arrive in June!
The Gypsy Quilter Appli-fuse Pressing Mat is the perfect choice to aid in placement! Place it over the pattern layout sheet and place the individual pieces right on the mat. Press them into position and lift them off as one applique unit!
This is not coming out until June, but I had to tell you about it now! Kimberbell Design’s last Halloween sampler quilt was one of her most popular patterns ever – and I’m sure this one will be just as popular!
Candy Corn Quilt Shoppe is available as a fabric kit by Maywood Studio.
And all of the fabrics are available by the bolt or in pre-cuts. Just look at this color pallette! Go to Hometown Halloween to see the entire collection. Kimberbell thought of everything – right down to the diagonal stripe for bindings!
The machine embroidery pattern will be available when the fabric is released.
It is also available in a traditional format : Item #KD727. Make sure you add this to your summer schedule so it can be done in time for the Trick or Treaters!
Gift-giving has never been easier! These delightful ornament bags, designed by Rachel’s of Greenfield, are just the right size for gift cards or other treasures of your choice. Each envelope-style ornament bag has a different decoration on the front and fastens on the back with an old-fashioned figure-eight closure. The kit includes woolfelt®, embroidery floss, and gold string plus precise patterns, and complete instructions to make 6 gift bags.
There are lots of kits to choose from.
These kits are a great way to keep those mask makers engaged. This is my plan:
This year I made GALLONS of Chex mix, filled quart jars, and put them in gift bags. My children and grandchildren had a ball leaving these gifts on the doorsteps of friends and on the desks of their favorite teachers. Hopefully, we will be able to celebrate the holidays this year up close and personal, but we want to continue the tradition. I drew squares the size of each woolfelt piece onto freezer paper. Then, I traced the templates for that color within the square. Since my family and friends are making multitudes of these, we can run as many copies of the template sheets as we have kits – and only have to trace them once. Now, the instructions say to trace the templates right onto the wool felt, but ironing the freezer paper onto the woolfelt with a warm iron was much faster. Why not provide a template sheet to your customers as that “value-added” bonus with the purchase of each kit?
This Gypsy Quilter Appliqué Freezer Paper is over-sized and worked well!
And, what great handwork while sitting in front of a fire…..
These Holly Jolly Gnomes designed by The Whole Country Caboodle are simply adorable! The pattern features four different gnomes: Reindeer Gnome, Snowflake Gnome, Santa Gnome, and Papa Gnome. With names like that, they could move right in with the Smurfs and feel right at home!
The booklet includes instructions for a mug rug, pillow, pillow wrap, and canister wrap. Many feature homespun towels as a base.
These fellows also come in laser cut kits which Include precut fused applique & finished drawing for assembling applique.
I can already see these as the basis of gifts for next year. Why not start a holiday club in January? Feature projects like this that make great gifts for everyone on your list – including the pets! Can’t you just picture a canister filled with cat or dog treats wrapped with a reindeer gnome? Decorated kitchen towels for hostess gifts? Mug rugs for the folks at work? Wouldn’t it be nice to have an assortment of gifts on hand next year?
These items are due to arrive the end of December so they would be a great way to kick off a new program! And don’t forget to check out Leann’s fabric with Henry Glass. Her basic lines are great wardrobe choices for these guys!
The pattern name is even adorable! Sew Cherished created the Snowflake Squad to help you with your winter decorating. Using the interchangeable banner and attaching the appliques with magnets – these little banners change out really quickly for a big impact. Each wool applique measures approximately 5″ in diameter.
This is the winter version of the Gouly Gang pattern I shared a few weeks ago. Made of hand-dyed wool, each pumpkin head is approximately 4″ x 4″. Designed to fit in the banner with magnets, they could easily be made into separate ornaments as well.
Both patterns are designed to work with this 67.5″ garland from Kraft Klub. Simply affix the wool work with magnets. The circles have a chalkboard finish you can write on them with chalk, too.
Here are the magnets designed to work with everything above! They are1″ inch enamel magnets that come in a 12 pack.
Don’t you love having a handwork project this time of year? Let’s sit in front of the fire and stitch away!
