Added lots of Freebies to the pattern share box

Been busy fabric shopping with my daughter and helping her get things ready for her ad.  She is so excited about the upcoming ad and sewing.  She actually staying up to sew, how familiar does that sound.  Remember check out her blog and join.  She will be doing an apron giveaway shortly.  Her blog is

I adding back some of favorites for the shows to the pattern share box at the bottom.  These are made on those plastic candy canes that you see every year at Walmart or the Dollar Store, for about $1.00.  I bought alot of these after Christmas for 25 cents each.  So mostly profit on these. Peel off the stripe if possible, then tear or cut muslin strips about 2" wide and start wrapping around the candy cane form. I just used tacky glue to glue the ends into the opening at the bottom and top. Then cut your red fabric and tear into strips that are about 1 1/2" wide and wide around in the same direction until you reach the end. I leave a little extra fabric at the ends, so I can tuck the ends in and glue to secure. I tie a green homespun bow around the cane and add a rusty safety and bell. Then attach the card that has the Legend of the Candy Cane on . I think this really helps sell them faster, everyone seems to love the poem.

Next I like to print up these cards and attach the old skeleton keys to the card. 
I have added this to the share box at the bottom.

This is little is fun and sold great last year. My reindeer's seem really popular last year. Pattern in the free drop box at the bottom of page.

next my daughter makes this every year, very easy to make and grandmother's love picking up a pack for each of their grandkids.  I have included several bag toppers at the bottom to choose from. Just add

1 cup of oatmeal, 
 1 cup of birdseed
1/2 of glitter

Just buy the small zip bags at Walmart, fill and add topper.
