Help I'm Sliding Snowman - Primitive Snowman Ornament Free E-Pattern by Linda Walsh of Linda Walsh Originals



"Help, I'm Sliding!" loves a good snowball fight and couldn't say "no" when his friend, "Give Me More Snow!" asked him to participate. So he eagerly agreed and has been helping to stockpile the snowballs all week. He, too, noticed that someone was stealing their snowballs and doesn't like that one bit. But, who is it? They have to find out and find out quickly before all their snowballs are gone.

"Help, I'm Sliding!" is a 10" primitive flannel snowman ornament. His body is two-tiered and his face is embroidered. He has blushed cheeks and is coffee stained throughout. He is wearing his favorite flannel cap. A fringed flannel scarf is wrapped around his neck and tied in a knot on the right side.

Can't I Sit Santa - Free Country Self-Sitting Santa E-Pattern by Linda Walsh of Linda Walsh Originals



"Can't I Sit Santa" is exhausted.  Mrs. Claus has him so busy he doesn't even have a chance to catch his breath - let alone take a nap.  And, he needs his naps.

"Can't I Sit Santa" is a 8" self-sitting country Santa. He has a cloth body, arms, and legs that sewn in a sitting position.  He has a drawn face, cloth body, little pink pompom nose, roving eyebrows, roving moustache, and bushy roving beard.  His white roving hair is barely controlled under his Santa cap with pompom.  He is holding a bag of presents in his lap that is tied with jute.

It doesn't look like "Can't I sit Santa" is going to get a nap today.  If he could just sit down........

Santa Me - Free Primitive Santa Finial Make-Do E-Pattern By Linda Walsh of Linda Walsh Originals




I just love to experiment. Especially with wood and cloth. So, I decided to see what I could do with a bunch of wood finials that I had.

If you don't know what a "finial" is it is an ornament at the top of a piece of furniture. Like a curtain rod or lamp, etc.

I decided that the "finial" I had would make a great body for a primitive Santa make-do. So, "Santa Me" was created.

"Santa Me" is an 8" a primitive Santa make-do with a stand alone wood body and cloth head. His face is embroidered and his cheeks are blushed. He has thick mohair yarn for his loopy beard and mustache. His straight hair made of thick mohair yarn sticks out from the top and side of his head in three spots. The back of his head is totally bald.

"Santa Me's" finial wood body is painted antique maroon and he has a painted black and gold belt and black dash highlights.

"Santa Me" loves being different and loves being the first in a new series. He's adventuresome and loves to be bold and daring. Best of all he loves being unique. As a wooden Santa finial - he sure is.

A Wool Crazy Christmas Pincushion Pattern By Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

By now you know for sure that I just LOVE pincushions. Therefore, you have to know that there was no way I was going to avoid adding  Kaaren Johnston's adorable "A Wool Crazy Christmas" pincushion to my "to do" list.  In fact, I'm going to add it to the top of my rather lengthy "to do" list.  Kaaren shared her wonderful pattern on her The Painted Quilt blog.  I hope you enjoy making yours.  I know I'm going to LOVE mine.

First Friday Freebie #15 - A Wool Crazy Christmas

Copyright © 2010 - All Rights Reserved - Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

Here's what Kaaren had to say about her pattern:  It’s the First Friday of the month again. Where is the time going?

I took a much needed break yesterday from the packing, purging and sorting to rest and regroup. I can’t wait until the move is over and and we’re settled in our new home.

Thank goodness I was able to remain a project ahead with my FFF’s and this month’s design was completed just after we purchased our new/old home at the end of September. I knew I just wouldn’t have the time to work on the design once the packing began.

I designed this month’s FFF in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season. I hope you enjoy making A Wool Crazy Christmas as much as I did.


Please respect Kaaren's TERMS OF USE:  The use of my pattern/design and tutorials is limited to individual and personal use only. Distributing or selling my pattern or tutorials in any form is not permitted. They may not be used for commercial purposes unless written permission is granted. Credit for my pattern and tutorials should be included if displayed in any manner.

Kaaren's Bio: I am an artist and have recently retired from actively designing, publishing and travel teaching in the decorative painting industry. A short while later, in December of 2010, we moved from Eastern Ontario to the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Quilting, stitching, applique and most recently rug hooking have become my new passions. Oh, and did I mention that I love to make and collect pincushions and needlecases! Join me on the First Friday of every month when I release a new Freebie design for you to make and enjoy.

No Sew Quilted Ball - Christmas Tutorial No 3 by Ros Coffey of RosMadeMe Blog

I just love ornaments that are easy to make so I was happy to see that Ros Coffey had a tutorial on her RosMadeMe Blog blog showing you how to make no sew quilted ball ornaments. Enjoy making yours.

No Sew Quilted Ball - Christmas Tutorial No 3

Copyright © 2012 - All Rights Reserved - Written by Ros Coffey of RosMadeMe Blog.

Here's what Ros had to say about her tutorial:  I have noticed recently that when I post up tutorials, people post that although they like it, they cannot sew, knit or crochet... so this week, you have no excuse all you need to do is pin and push. I need to thank the ladies of the Quilting Board in the US for pointing me in the direction of this technique... I had seen these balls before but thought that they looked really complicated but they are not, but when you make them and are asked how, just nod knowingly and say it is all down to technique when you make an eight point star Christmas ball!

Ros's Bio:I live by the sea, in Essex, in Leigh-on-sea. I have been making things since I was a child, earliest memories were embroidering squares of binca matting, making felt egg cups and ripping back my knitting when my sister had picked up a dropped stitch... yep, it really did have to be all my own work! I am a dreadful hoarder, with stashes of wool and fabric hidden around my house, together with the projects that I have not yet finished. I am currently making cushions, quilted, appliqued, stencilled... actually just anything that I will enjoy crafting.
