Valentine Giveaway 2015 – With Prairie Point Junction

valentine sewing patterns, felt sewing patterns, pdf patterns, valentine ideas


We are excited to announce that we are once again partnering up with Prairie Point Junction (home of Wool Felt Central) for a joint Valentine giveaway! They are such a great place to get felt, and we get most of our felt from them! We highly recommend their lovely online shop!! Check them out if you haven’t already!

And now about the giveaway…

A total of 10 winners will be drawn!!

The giveaway starts now (Friday, Jan. 16th), and ends on Friday, Jan. 23rd.

Details below!


How To Enter

Each person can enter this contest two times! One entry is made simply by leaving a comment here on this blog post (tell us your favorite holiday cat or dog!). And a second entry to win can be made by leaving a comment over at Prairie Point Junction’s blog too! On their blog, let them know what your favorite felt bundle is, or your favorite colors to work with.




We will draw from the comments at random on Saturday, January 24th, and announce the winners here on our blog, on Facebook, and over at Prairie Point Junction. The winners will be notified by email, so be sure to double check your email address when entering, as this is how we will get a hold of you. Your email will not be used for any other reason. If we don’t hear back from a winner, we will re-draw after 7 days.



The Prizes

Grand Prize (2):

Two grand prizes will be drawn. Each grand prize winner will receive both the Valentine Cat and Valentine Dog PDF patterns, and Prairie Point Junction’s “Puppy Love” bundle of felt as shown above (as well as a few other small pieces of felt colors needed for the patterns). The felt bundle may have a few color substitutions from what we originally used in our patterns, but in general, this lovely bundle is perfect for you to make one each of the cat and dog!

(Disclaimer: Since the grand prizes include the shipping of felt, they can only be awarded to US residents)

Second Place (3):

There will be 3 second place prizes handed out! The second place prize winners will receive both the Valentine Cat and Dog PDF patterns! These will be sent by email.

Third Place (5):

5 third place prizes will be handed out! Third place winners will win their choice of the Valentine Cat OR the Valentine Dog PDF pattern! These will be sent by email.

Important note: All patterns will be emailed to you as a PDF pattern. No patterns will be physically mailed to you.


Other Important Notes

• If you are a winner, but you already own our Valentine Cat or Dog pattern(s), we will happily switch out your prize for a different holiday cat or dog pattern (or any other $5 pattern, if you already own all our holiday cat and dog patterns). The Puppy Love felt bundle cannot be switched out however.

• If you don’t end up winning, but would still like to make the Valentine Cat and Dog, you can find Prairie Point Junction’s “Puppy Love” felt bundle in their online shop! And you can find the Valentine Cat & Dog patterns for sale in our Etsy shop.

• As mentioned above, some of the colors in the Puppy Love felt bundle are not exact matches for the colors we mentioned in our patterns. However, they are very close and will still work well!



Good Luck, and Happy Early Valentine’s Day to you all!!

FamilyFun Magazine Feature: Heart Suncatchers


We Were Featured in FamilyFun Magazine!!

FamilyFun Magazine

        Our glue heart suncatcher idea was featured in the February 2015 issue of FamilyFun magazine! They remade the hearts with their own style, and turned it into a whole page in their magazine. We were credited in fine print along the side of the article, so nothing splashy, but it’s still fun to have our idea featured in this way! This is our second magazine feature! Hope you’ll enjoy seeing their twist on our project!

Get the pattern here!

Norman is the 4th pattern in our backyard bird series! We know nuthatches are not as well known, but we get them at our feeder often and really love the little guys! They have such pretty markings and we tried to capture that in our pattern’s design. We are going to continue the Backyard Bird series with a bluebird as our next pattern, which will hopefully be completed and released soon!

We are offering a $1 off discount code for Norman for the first week. The offer ends Friday, Jan. 16th. The code is to be used at Etsy (see link above) and it is: NORMAN2015
So go check it out now to get this discount!

Until next time,
Happy sewing!

        With Valentine’s Day coming up, we’ve just posted a new free craft idea that kids would love! These easy “stained glue” suncatchers look like stained glass, but are much easier and cheaper to make. We’ve provided a variety of heart templates so you can easily make the heart shapes shown above. This would be a really fun project to do with your kids, or even at school in art class!

        And we’re excited to announce that this idea is being featured in the February 2015 issue of Family Fun magazine!

To learn how these are made and download the free templates, click here: Valentine Heart Suncatchers.
