Sweet Floral Bunny Dish Towel Friday’s Freebie

Hi, all! Eileen from GoofingOff Sewing here. I finally finished working on the bird ornaments for the Relay for Life Reception in Gainesville, FL T’ONIGHT….nothing like waiting until the last minute…..and have a chance to get caught up with other things….like life. Well, my friends, I am here with a Friday Freebie. These are the cutest dishtowels to brighten up the kitchen for spring. Screen Shot 2017-04-21 at 7.34.43 AM

The design is from Flamingo Toes and posted on her lovely blog. She has the full tutorial with lots of pictures to follow along with. Go HERE to see her work and have a wonderful weekend. I’ll be back with sewing tips and tutorials. Promise.

Free Pattern from Burda

Today I found this cute tote bag pattern from the good folks at Burda. The bag is adorable! The pattern calls for leather strips and a scarf (if you can part with one of your scarf…fabric is always good).

Click HERE for the pattern.

GoofingOff’s Friday Freebie

Today’s Friday Freebie is a day late but awesome just the same. It is a flower wreath by Jacquelynne Steves. The design is suitable for embroidery, applique, needlepoint, or punch embroidery. It can be done in pastels for springs, orange, brown, and yellow for fall, or silver (or gold) with red berries for the holidays.

Friday Freebie: Crocheted Slippers

Screen Shot 2015-06-022

I am surrounded by old papers and patterns….surrounded…but patterns like this one…..I’m OK. These cute slippers came from an old magazine page….not sure what magazine but they look like they’d keep feet warm on a cold winter night….and winter will come soon enough. Crochet a few pairs of these honeys while you sit at the pool or in the car during the summer road trip and holiday shopping will be a little less hectic.

Per the pattern: “Crochet these from  Coats & Clarks Red Heart Knitting Worsted. Six ounces are sufficient for a pair; use plastic crochet hook G. Instructions are given for small size, changes for medium and large are in parentheses. Sew elastic thread around top.

Abbreviations:

ch (chain)       sk (skip)

st (stitch)        hdc (half double crochet)

dc (double crochet)   rnd (round)

inc (increase)

sp  (space)           dec (decrease)
