News About My Tutorial Archive

I've decided to retire a few of my old blog tutorials - or, rather, to put them out to work to help pay my bills!

http://bugsandfishes.blogspot.com/p/crafty-tutorials.html

Most of my archive of free crafty tutorials will remain as it is, but the following projects will soon be vanishing from my blog and reappearing as printable PDF patterns in my shops.

Three floral designs:

The felt flower headband, and the accompanying flower embroidery pattern.

The felt dahlia brooches, and the festive variation: felt poinsettia brooches.

And the large felt flower brooches.

Plus three Christmas designs: 

The felt snow globe ornaments, and the accompanying snow globe embroidery pattern and ornament tutorial.

The felt angel ornaments (version one and version two), and the accompanying angel embroidery pattern and angel card tutorial.

And the embroidered mistletoe ornament.

All of these projects will be removed from my blog on May 1st, so if you'd like to make them for free please get any instructions and templates/patterns printed out or saved before then!

The PDF versions will be in my shops in May and will cost £3 each (+ VAT, if applicable, when purchased via my Etsy shop). All the free tutorials here on my blog are intended for non-commercial use only, but you are very welcome to sell any items made using patterns purchased from my shop as long as you make the items yourself and credit me as the designer.

I admit I saved the snow globe pattern as it is one of my favourites and never had the chance to make it till now. I also love it cross stitched. Once again I am glad I bought the original embroidered angel! AriadnefromGreece!

I hope you'll enjoy making your snow globes, Ariadne! The cross stitch version will be staying here on my blog :)

Well done for making them into an income stream. I love your flowers so have downloaded it to save now as I am thinking of making them for my night class for christmas ornaments. I have used your technique when i stitched a felt snowman of my design and it made him lovely. I too love the snow globe pattern which i need to check that i saved.
