Kathleen Snow Queen Primitive Winter Seasonal Snow-lady Decoration Free E-pattern




You'll find that children love snow, but senior citizens - not so much! 

The older I've gotten the more I dislike snow but as a child I loved the winter season, especially when it was snowing as it meant "no school." Yea!  

That meant we would be able to have a snow ball fight, create snow angels, and forts at the end of our driveway.  

That was always after we shoveled the driveway.  Mind you this was way before snow blowers made it easier for everyone.

So, with Christmas and the winter season not to far off in our future I thought you might like to get a jump start on making some new winter decorations with a free e-pattern to create a free standing primitive terry cloth snow-lady decoration.


"Kathleen Snow Queen" has no problem handling the cold. She is, after all, from a long line of Estonian Snow Queens. 

"Kathleen Snow Queen" is very proud of her Estonian heritage. She comes from a long line of "Snow Queens" and is proud to show her genealogy to anyone who asks. 

She spends hours and hours searching for her ancestry and has been working on her genealogy project for over 20 years. 

If you want to view her genealogy just be sure to reserve have plenty of time - it's a lengthy genealogy spanning back hundreds of years.


She is a free-standing snow-lady with a coffee stained terry cloth square bottom body with an embroidered heart. 

She has an embroidered face with black eyes, cinnamon sticks for arms, large fringed flannel scarf wrapped around her head and neck, and fur ear muffs. 

She is holding a grapevine heart in one arm and a small “I Love Snow” sign in the other.

Alexander Snow Tsar Primitive Winter Seasonal Snowman Decoration Free E-Pattern



It seems to be the winter storms these days are a lot worse than they were when I was a child.  I might be wrong as my perspective as a child was a lot different than my perspective the older I've gotten.  

The older I've gotten the more I dislike snow but as a child I loved the winter season, especially when it was snowing as it meant "no school." Yea!  

That meant we would be able to have a snow ball fight, create snow angels, and forts at the end of our driveway.  

That was always after we shoveled the driveway.  Mind you this was way before snow blowers made it easier for everyone.

So, with Christmas and the winter season not to far off in our future I thought you might like to get a jump start on making some new winter decorations with a free e-pattern to create a free standing primitive snowman decoration.


Alexander Snow Tsar can handle the cold. After all he is from a long line of Russian Tsars. "Alexander Snow Tsar" is also very proud of his Russian heritage. 

He, too, is from a long line of Russian Tsars. 

He hasn't spend as much time on his genealogy as "Kathleen Snow Queen." 

He's working on it slowly but surely - generation by generation.


He is a free-standing snowman with a coffee stained terry cloth square bottom body with pockets. He has an embroidered face with black eyes, cinnamon sticks for arms, fringed flannel scarf and fur hat. 

He is carrying one ski and one ski-pole in his pockets.

Crazy Claus At Your Service Christmas Ornament Primitive Decoration Free E-Pattern



I know it's seems like it's way too early to even mention Christmas, but this is the time of the year that crafters get started on their Christmas gifts or decorations. 

You know I love ornaments for all holidays and all season. Well, make that I love all crafts and decorations....lol 

So, I have to ask, "Who doesn't love lots and lots of Christmas ornaments - especial Santa Claus ornaments!"

With Christmas not to far off in our future I thought you might like to get a jump start on making some new Christmas decorations with a free e-pattern to create a primitive Santa Claus ornament.

How-To Create Some Beautiful Floral, Wreath and Leaf Crafts For Your Fall Decorating Purposes


As you know there is just something about the Fall decorating season that just inspires me to craft.  For sure it definitely gets my muse in overdrive.  

Every year around this time I can start to feel it. This urge to create that starts to show itself, again.

It starts slowly and builds gradually until it reaches a full-blown crescendo in November. But, I can feel it starting and I know that I won't have any control over it, once again.  You can't fight your muse, so why not enjoy it.

I find myself wanting to sew, create floral arrangements or craft something.  Anything. LOL

Due to all the different types of crafts I've learned over the years the media could be anything: from mixed media, to paper-clay sculpting, painting, sewing, paper crafts, stamping, etc. You just never know.

Or, I have to sew some more dolls or other fabric decorations. Like I need any more crafts! But, that's a subject for another article!

The point is, I just have to create - SOMETHING! ANYTHING! The more the merrier! At least as far as I'm concerned.  Hubby - well, that's another matter.  LOL

Of course, my husband would say; "Why don't you create doing the housework!" Nah! That's no fun.

My muse has got a creative mind all its own. And, it definitely urges me in one direction. It doesn't do housework so look out, anyone or anything that gets in its way. HaHa....

Forget the housework - what's a little dirt and dust! Forget the shopping - who needs to eat! Forget the bills - YIKES!!! Forget the family! Oh, boy! That's a no-no! Forget eating - that's okay - it's called creativity dieting!

So, what is it during this season that takes over? I'm not sure but I know that I'm not alone with this. Many crafters that I've talked to tell me that they also experience this. It might be at different times of the year, but they know when it's starting. Maybe it's a crafting thing? When you're in the "crafting", "creating" mode you are "IN THE MODE."

Creative ideas invade your thoughts. I've even had them invade my dreams. You can't sleep - you have to get up and write down your thoughts.  Better keep a pad of paper and pencil next to the bed!

And, when I'm in the mode, I'll craft or sew a lot of things. I might put together multiple numbers of floral arrangements, or anything else that I seem to want to create.

I don't know about you, but I'm a little obsessive when it comes to my sewing. I have to cut everything out first, then sew everything, then put everything together. That means if I have 20 items to cut out I cut all twenty before I start to sew anything. The same holds true for crafting.

In any event, I never said my way was the way to go about it. It's just my way of feeding my muse. Maybe I should call it my "overly obsessive creative muse?"

I'd like to say that my muse has only occurred when I was an adult except that wouldn't be true.

Scary and Fun Crafts To Make For The Scary Halloween Season


One of my most favorite holidays is Halloween.  There are just so many different creatures you can make for scary, frightening and delicious you can make for your home decorating purposes.

Have fun with your "spooky" decorating!

Boo! Hoo! Billy Primitive Ghost Ornament Free E-Pattern For "Nice" Halloween Decorating



We all know that ghosts are supposed to be scary! That's their job - to scare everyone at Halloween, especially the little children. 

Well, what if there's a ghost that doesn't want to scare anyone - especially little children. 

A ghost that just wants to be friends with everyone and a ghost that doesn't just want to be visible at one time of the year. 

A ghost that wants to celebrate Christmas, and New Year's Day, and St. Patrick's Day, and Easter, and the 4Th of July, and any of the other holidays. 

A ghost that wants to have a family someday of 12 little ghosts running around. 

A ghost that is nice and kind and thoughtful and considerate. 

Well, that would be "Boo! Hoo! Billy." 

"Boo! Hoo! Billy" is tired of being viewed as mean and nasty and malicious. 

He's never been nor does he ever want to be anything like that. 

He just wants to be a normal person with a normal life. 

Is that too much to ask? 

"Boo! Hoo! Billy" doesn't think so.

Care For Some Brew, Virginia Primitive Halloween Witch Free E-Pattern - She's Frightening!


If you're looking for a frightening witch decoration to make for this Halloween season they don't get more frightening than my "care For Some Brew, Virginia" primitive witch ornament.

I'll get you my pretty! 

Yes, I will!" 

YIKES! 

Not only is she a nasty sounding witch, but a really scary one to boot! Maybe that's why she's an extreme primitive. The scarier - the better. 

Well, they don't get much nastier or scarier than "Can For Some Brew, Virginia!" 

I don't know about you, but I don't think I'd accept anything from "Care For Some Brew, Virginia!" Would you? 

If you did I'm not too sure what would happen to you. 

Would you get sick? Maybe! 

Would you melt? Maybe if you're lucky 

Would you be so delusional you'd start to think "Care For Some Brew, Virgina! wasn't scary? 

Maybe, but you'd have to be out of your mind for that?

Crowin Mike Primitive Scarecrow Doll Ornament Free E-Pattern



When decorating for Fall you just can't have enough little doll ornaments to hang just about anywhere or to place in some little nook or cranny.   So, I thought you might enjoy a free e-pattern from one of my ornament e-patterns.

His name is “Crowin Mike” and he is a 9” handmade primitive scarecrow doll ornament.

As far as "Crowin Mike" is concerned there are scarecrows and there are SCARECROWS! And, then there is "Crowin Mike!" 

You're probably wondering what's so different about "Crowin Mike!" as I'm sure he looks like any other scarecrow. In fact, he looks quite charming and harmless. Well, you'd be wrong. 

You see "Crowin Mike" is a primitive scarecrow ornament with a penchant for witches, ghosts, and goblins. 

Hang out with crows! Oh, no - not "Crowin Mike!" They're just a bunch of birds. 

He wants to hang out with the "villains" of the Fall season - the ghosts, goblins, and witches. Why, "Crowin Mike" even claims to be friends with Frankenstein and Dracula. 

In fact, his favorite movie is "The Headless Horseman!" Oh, My! 

What kind of a scarecrow is "Crowin Mike?" Well, actually he's quite the actor.  He had you all fooled - didn't he? 

However, he really is an adorable scarecrow. Amiable, kind, and willing to lend a hand where ever he can. 

He's even willing to help the ghosts, goblins and witches do their thing. Fooled you again, - didn't he? 



"Crowin Mike!" is a 9" primitive scarecrow ornament and has coffee stained cloth body with an embroidered and watercolor penciled face.

A Bit Of a Challenge - Free Primitive Annie Witch E-Pattern



With Halloween coming up in the Fall I thought you might like a little sewing challenge with creating a primitive witch decoration.    

She's a lot of fun to make but,  can be quite frightening when she wants to be.  She is a witch for sure.

Sometimes she gets lonely and tries to be nice. After all, everyone needs a little company from time to time. Even Primitive Witchy Annie. 

The truth is she'd actually like to have some real friends. That way she could always call them when she's lonely and when she can feel a real "Watch Out My Pretty I'm Going To Get You!" mood coming on.


Primitive Witchy Annie has a coffee stained cloth body and embroidered face with black bead eyes.  She's wearing a coffee stained, tattered, and fringed dress, a tattered apron with bow, and gathered bloomers.
