Percy Penguin Free Felt Ornie Pattern

I thought I had posted this last year, but a quick browse of my archive indicates otherwise. It HAS been sitting in my Flickr photostream since December 5 of 2010.
I know that autumn has only just begun, and that I should not rush into winter (I am Canadian, so trust me when I say that winter is NOT something I look forward to!), but I am about to join the Trim The Tree Holiday Ornament Swap on Flickr. Percy Penguin here was one of the pieces I had considered sending one of my partners last year (I opted for sending out birdie themed felt ornies instead, and wee Percy went to my bestie's little sister)
When I made Percy, I quickly sketched up his pattern and made this printable one-page tute for anybody who would like to have him join their ornament collection. I have made him with felt, but you could also make him with painted muslin for a more rustic look.

As always, he is free for your personal use.
Hugs and Happy Autumn!

Happy Boo-Day Halloween Freebie!

Hi crafty friends!

Sorry I am late, but I am sure you are used to it by now :D
Without further delay, I would like to introduce to you Miss Matilde Labelle. Matilde, an arachnid of the highest class, has always wanted to go trick-or-treating. Every year was the same story - nobody wanted to give candy to a spider. Some people even chased her with a can of Raid!
This year, Matilde hopes that she can fool those silly humans and get some candy. She has a fancy new Jack-o'-lantern mask, witch's hat, cape and boots, and funky striped socks.
I think the 8 legs may still be a dead giveaway, but don't tell sweet Matilde!

As always, I provide these patterns free for your personal use.
If you make something with any of my designs, drop me an email or leave a comment with a link. I would love to see your work!

Coming Soon: New freebie

Hi people!
Sorry for the delay in my September freebie pattern release. Rest assured that I have not forgotten about you. I have sketched up my design and will be editing it and scanning it very soon.
I had to babysit my nieces 2 kitties (ok, HUGE cats). Rooney, the quirky ginger fella, decided to give me the pierced nose that I have been wanting (thanks boy, but really I want to have it done by a pro, and with a needle, not a fang). Parker, the docile black boy, just kinda purred about nonchalantly. I spent the night watching an Indiana Jones movie marathon on TV because I was without internet! Seriously, that is the first time I have been away from a computer for 24 hrs in YEARS! I developed a migraine. It could have been the Chinese food, or wearing my glasses for longer than normal, but I attribute it to internet withdrawl!
I did finally manage to make the fabulous pontetilla necklace knockoff from Flamingo Toes. The pic below is Bev's creation, as shown in her tutorial.

I won a kit from Bev's lovely blog ages ago. It is a dark charcoal grey and gorgeous! I would take a pic, but my camera is totally dead. I need to get a new battery for it, but it is one of those silly specialty batteries so I will have to order one online. ugh!

I also want to shout out a big hello to all of my new visitors from various online stamping sites! I had no idea that my embroidery patterns would be so popular with digital stampers, but I cannot wait to see what you all create! Please leave links to your projects here, or email them to me so I can show them off on my blog.

hugs to all,
aka Digital Misfit
