A Spooky Sleepover (Free Pattern)

Are you ready for a spooky sleepover? This quilt-quillow was designed specifically for the little humans that we all love. The pumpkins are friendly, the colours are bright, and it’s perfect for a Halloween sleepover.

A Spooky Sleepover is brought to you for free by the lovely people at Therm-o-Web, the company that makes my favourite brand of fusible webbing, Heat-n-Bond Lite.

The quilt folds up and into a pillow cover which is large enough to fit a cushion and a pair of pajamas.

I’ve also made a quick and easy mug rug pattern using the pumpkin template. Peggy Pumpkin Mug Rug is available here – Peggy Pumpin ePattern

small-ghosts-and-ghoulsI’ve updated the Little Witches pattern. Little Witches 2 is now available in our Etsy store for the special price of Aud$5 plus appropriate state/country/county taxes.

There will be some giveaways to go with this free pattern, but I’m running late with my deadline and I wanted to get the pattern up asap. I’ll be back early next week with details of the giveaway and maybe another free project.

After a few missteps I finally got the binding on the pumpkin quilt today. Every so often I make such a mess of things the only solution is to sit down and grab the unpicker!

The quilt folds up into a easy-to-carry pocket. There’s room for a small pillow and pajamas too! It’s the perfect sleepover kit for Halloween.

Ps. you can make this project as a normal quilt, you don’t have to add the pillow pocket.

Mermaid Tales + Five Dollar Fridays

I’m bored with being sick and I needed something to do while I was Netflix-ing and letting the antibiotics kick in. Mermaid Tales needed rebinding, so Ms Janome and I did some sneaky sewing. No-one was home to stop me, the fun police were at work and school LOL. It really only took half an hour to do I promise. I’m not good at doing nothing, it drives me crazy.

 

 

The mermaid dolls are from the Happy Quilts book, are easy to make, and match this quilt perfectly. I always link you to Amazon, but I’ve been told that Amazon are charging Australian customers anything up to $50 for the book plus postage. You can find Happy Quilts here at Book Depository for around Aud$26 with free postage.

Five Dollar Friday is back and A Mermaid’s Tale is on special in our Etsy store for $5 (plus applicable taxes) until Monday (my time – AEST).

You can buy the pattern directly from me, if you prefer, by using the buy now buttons below. I will email the PDF pattern to you, so please keep in mind differences in time zones. Thanks.

I’ve put the PRINTED pattern on sale too for Aud$12 including postage. I love how WordPress now allows me to put a simple shop on here now!

Dinner is ready and all joking aside I’m tired and I’m wheezing, so it’s time to call it quits for the night. Take care, toni xx

 

Pumpkin spice and all things nice.

Hiya folks, another week has flown by and the school hols are coming to an end. It’s been a delight not to have to drive into the city at least twice a day. Thankfully the coming semester is a short one for us, a mere seven weeks, and it’s followed by our long Summer/Christmas break. Phew!

I’ve been working on a new free pattern for you, a Halloween/Fall project for the lovelies at Therm-o-Web. I started with these pumpkins but soon realised they were slightly too big and too fat. In the bin with them!

After a couple of days of trial and error I’ve got them right and I’m hoping to get most of the project sewn this weekend.

On a personal front I’m still covered in hives and tonight I can barely sit down. I’ll let you guess where the biggest and worst of them are! You’re allowed to laugh, lots. If it wasn’t so painful I’d been laughing too, it’s so ludicrous. I’ve spent years dealing with the curve balls my over-active immune system throws at me but this one takes the cake on the miserable meter.

Okay, that’s it for me, I’m off to find an ice pack for my butt. Now I’m sure I heard you laugh! Last time this happened was when the cat attacked me in the middle of the night and left teeth marks in my butt! xx

BTW I’ve left the Camp Grizzly pattern at $5 (plus appropriate taxes) for this weekend. Monday night and it’s back to full price.
