Twinkle Toes Tess from Hatched and Patched

Twinkle Toes Tess

First up is Twinkle Toes Tess. She’s a curly haired Christmas angel bringing gifts of gingerbread and figgy pudding. Her dress is trimmed with felt pennies and bells and a crown sits atop her jolly head. The pattern includes instructions to make the doll and her dress and accessories. Suitable for intermediate to advanced stitchers. We’re trying to source the rusty bells and will keep you posted.

Next, we have the wonderful Gwen and George. George is holding a felt beehive and has a jar of honey in his pocket. Gwen also has a jar of honey for sale. My kind of girl! The pattern includes instructions for making both bears, their clothes and all their accessories. This pattern is suitable for intermediate to advanced needleworkers.

For the stitchers amongst you, we’ve added some great new patterns. There’s Hey Diddle Diddle, a simple but effective stitchery based on the classic nursery rhyme. Only very basic stitches are required: running stitch, back stitch and french knot. I should think that, due simply to the small size of some of the animals thus making it a little more fiddly, this would be suitable for the more advanced beginner.

There’s also some quilt projects for you. The Funky Flower Tablerunner makes for an excellent stashbuster or you can use up some of those charm packs I’m sure you have lying around!

 Henpecked from Hatched and Patched


I just love Henpecked, a primitive folk art table runner or wall hanging featuring appliqued birds, flowers and stars with embroidered leaves and stems bordered with scrappy patchwork and scalloped edging.

And finally we have Seed Pots, which is a medallion of three appliqued flowers and buzzy bee (which I think looks more like a dragonfly, but it’s cute anyway!) with embroidered stems and lettering (running stitch, back stitch and blanket stitch), surrounded by pieced borders.
