Love giving handmade gifts for the Holidays? This mystery will be great for you then! 14 designer teams have come together to bring you 14 projects to give as gifts! Or let’s be honest, you’ll want one too! Every 2 weeks another project will be revealed, giving you plenty of time to be ahead of schedule for gift giving. Click HERE join the FB Group, The Joy of Giving and get ready to be ready for the holidays this year! Find all the projects in the Announcement section as they are released. For this event my gift to you is the FREE printed pattern when you purchase a kit, but another gift to you is one of my favorite recipes we enjoy during the holidays. Click HERE to get the download for one of my favorite holiday recipes, Overnight Caramel Rolls. We enjoy them when the family is all together and we enjoy grazing on them for hours on a busy morning filled with family and fun.
My project kit will be offered in two colorways, Red/Green or Blue. They will come with the FREE printed pattern along with wool and cotton fabrics (*and buttons for the blue kit) needed to complete the project For $24.99. The printed patterns include the preprinted Wool Applique Freezer Paper templates ready for you to iron onto your wool and cut out saving you lots of time and energy! Thread kits can be purchased for $11.50 for the Red/Green kit and $3.99 for the Blue kit. Trust me, you will LOVE these threads I’ve chosen for this project! You may also purchase the printed pattern (which includes the preprinted templates) for $10 or the downloadable pattern for $5.00 during the event beginning July 17th. Check back soon for even more colorways for a variety of designs in this series!
I've listed out important notions I love to use for wool applique. These make the process easier and faster for me and I know they will help you too! The Wool and Needle Turn Applique' Freezer Paper is great for getting your design cut out and is a great bargain at 75 pages for $9.99. The Kai scissors I offer are super sharp and are economical. It's good to have both sizes on hand for cutting large or small and detailed shapes from wool or cotton. The Longarm Stapler is wonderful for holding the shapes in place- weather you glue or fuse- they will stay in place with this stapler that reaches far into your blocks. The Traditional Primitives Wool Applique' needles are wonderful for all common embroidery threads but 8 pearl cottons. You will see they glide right through cotton and wool layers wonderfully! For this project you'll also need a bigger eyed needle for one of the threads so I'm offering the Chenille's along with my wool applique needles. You will most likely need a simple threader to thread your needle. I offer the Roxanne Threader as it is durable and economical. I prefer using glue stick to adhere the applique' shapes and I offer the brand I think works the best and does not make a mess or dry up quickly, but if you like fusible, I offer Barely There. It's printable and is wonderfully lightweight. The thimbles I love are stick on and you cut to the size you need. They are reusable and you won't even know you have it on your finger! If you need a little help seeing the needle eye, the Finger Magnifier is super handy for threading!
