Hanukkah and Christmas Printable Iron on Transfers

I have been having so much fun creating my applique patterns for my Etsy shop, but then one day I was thinking about how fun it would be to make some iron on transfers that people could print themselves. I know not everyone loves to applique, so this would be an easy way to make a fun, unique, t-shirt. I have made a few iron on shirts for my son recently to test out my patterns, and they are so easy to make!! I am actually pretty impressed with the quality of iron on paper today. It used to be so stiff and the shirts never looked quite right, but the ones I picked up from Michael’s worked perfectly. Maybe soon I will do a quick tutorial for an iron on shirt. Hubby has been asking me to make him a shirt, so I can show the process with that.

I have been turning a lot of my applique designs into iron on transfers. These are made with patterned designs so it almost looks like fabric on your shirt, but it’s so much easier!! Of course all my applique patterns are still available if you want to use those to make a quilt or to make shirts with your own fabric. I still love the look of fabric on a shirt, but iron on transfers do make the process nice and quick! I have designed a few for Hanukkah and Christmas, and even though these holidays are close, since my designs are printables, there is still plenty of time to pick one up and make a special shirt for the holiday.

Tons of new PDF Applique Patterns and Templates in the Store!

Happy Halloween!! I hope everyone’s day is going very ghouly. Halloween was unfortunately postponed until Saturday in our town due to hurricane Sandy. Luckily we personally did not lose power or have anything bad happen to us because of the storm, but it did hit our town pretty hard. So instead of worrying about trick or treaters tonight, we are going to have our own little party just the three of us. We are all going to pick one favorite snack, we will turn on some good Halloween flicks, and we drink and be merry all night long! We all enjoy the holiday, so this will be a great way to celebrate it.

If you haven’t checked out my applique pattern store over at Etsy yet, I would highly recommend it. 🙂 I recently changed the name to match my business name here, so it is officially Scrapendipity Designs now! You can visit the shop here:

Halloween Coupon on My Applique Patterns!

So before I get to the patterns, I just wanted to share that I have officially learned how to bunny hop on a scooter! LOL We got our son a scooter not too long ago, and he has been having a blast trying to learn tricks on it. He even took it to the skate park yesterday and was riding down the ramps and stuff. So today he asked me to come watch him ride, which I was happy to do, and he offered to teach me to bunny hop. It took me a few (okay more than a few) tries, but eventually I finally did it!! I was so happy for me, and it was so cute to watch my son be so excited for me. Now he insists that I must get my own scooter so we can go scootering together. I may just have to do that!

Today I wanted to share a few new PDF applique patterns I created. I am having so much fun coming up with ideas. I have a whole book of ideas that I haven’t even drawn up yet, and more that I have drawn, but not uploaded! But let’s look at some I did upload.

Monkey Applique Pattern
This adorable monkey is one of many animal patterns I have in my shop now. Wouldn’t he look so cute on a toddler’s t-shirt?

Ninja Applique Pattern
A crime fighting ninja is always a good addition to the family!

Thanksgiving Applique Pattern
Doing some holiday sewing? Wouldn’t this guy look awesome on an apron for the Thanksgiving chef?

Alice in Wonderland Applique Pattern
I am working on a fairy Tale series of patterns, and this is one from Alice in Wonderland.

Pirate Applique Pattern
Yargh! How’s a pirate hit ya matey?

These are just a few of the new ones I have added. To see them all, check out my shop over at Etsy … Scrapendipity Designs.

I haven’t really done an applique tutorial on this blog yet, but I am hoping to do that soon. I am just having too much fun designing to stop and sew!! If you do purchase one of my patterns and you aren’t sure how to do applique, please just let me know and I would be happy to send along some links to good tutorials I have found.

Also, be sure to sign up for my newsletter. You can do so in the right hand side of this blog. I am planning on sending out periodic emails featuring the new patterns I add to my shop. That is probably the best way to keep up to date on what I am adding!

Happy Quilting (and scootering)!

Applique Pattern Samples

Today I was able to make up 3 samples for patterns. I used a few different styles of applique for these. If these ever get made into a quilt, I will ultimately longarm them, so even the raw edge applique will be sewn down. But I still like the look of needleturn applique, so I try to do that when I can as well. That method just takes longer to do and I am not real good at small pieces with that, so raw edge works great for those. If you are interested in the pattern for each of these, they are only $1.50 and can be found by clicking on the actual pictures.

Here is a rocketship. I fussy cut a fun fabric for the guys in the windows. Hubby was impressed with that easy little bit of work.

Here is the Mickey Ice Cream Pop. I love how this turned out. My favorite part of it is the bit of chocolate left on the popsicle stick from when it was dipped.

Here is a creepy pair of Halloween eyes. I thought they really popped off the black fabric, makes them look like they are lurking in the dark waiting to pounce on you.

I am having so much fun making patterns. Yesterday I had a flurry of ideas for future patterns and I am excited to make them up. I also have about 15 patterns I have already made, but haven’t posted for sale yet. So hopefully there will be plenty of choices of patterns to choose from!

Happy Quilting!

Virtual Sew Day and More Patterns!

So I have been keeping up with Virtual Sew Day over at, even though I haven’t been posting it so much here. Tomorrow is another one! Honestly I haven’t been doing much sewing lately (hence the quiet blog), but now that I am creating patterns, I am starting to feel the sewing bug again. Tomorrow I will be working on some of my new patterns and maybe a few other projects thrown in for fun. If you would like to join in, Virtual Sew Day is just a fun day where you sew at home, I sew at home, and then we chat about our progress to keep each other motivated. You can post here, or check out the post I will start over at

I have created quite a few new patterns. You can pick any of them up at my Etsy shop or my Craftsy shop. These are all fabric applique patterns. They are sold as templates only. Here are a few new ones I have added, I will post some of the actual fabric blocks tomorrow as well.

First up we have a large pack of alien monsters. These guys would look great as a whole quilt. The pack, however, only includes the templates not quilt instructions, so use your imagination to build something fun!! All these patterns are also sold individually.

Next up I have something based on our recent trip to Disney World. These Mickey ice cream pops were everywhere and really signified that you had arrived. This one has a big bite out of it, but I also have one with no bite in my shop.

To go with the alien monsters, I also created a few space themed applique patterns like this rocketship. I think these would look great sprinkled in with the monsters as well!

And lastly, I know it’s a bit odd to see food as a fabric applique, but I just thought it would be fun to see a quilt made of classic foods!! This pizza slice is one of the ones I have in my shop.

These are just a couple examples, I have more in my shop, so be sure to check them all out!! Tomorrow I will have some examples of what these look like when made out of actual fabric!!

Happy Quilting!

New Applique Halloween Patterns

I has been a while since I last sewed!! Of course I always love sewing, but sometimes it gets put aside for a while in the name of other pursuits. But I recently slowly started back up again, and the first thing I started with was making some patterns. I am having fun creating these, and of course I have a whole treasure trove of ideas locked away in my head to create. I am selling my patterns on Etsy and Craftsy. They are applique patterns, but the patterns themselves do not include applique instructions. I have used at least 5 different applique methods myself, and a Google search can yield hundreds of options, so I decided to only include the patterns and let people use their own preferred method. So you want to see my patterns? Here you go!

First up is some wordage. I love words in quilts, and of course Halloween words are just the best. I started with two smaller words eek ….

and boo …

Both words are included in one pattern, and I provided the right side and reverse pattern as well. The pattern can be found here:

Eek-Boo Halloween Pattern at Etsy
Eek-Boo Halloween Pattern at Craftsy

The second pattern is a fun monster who is looking not too happy.

I had fun making this little guy. I had a hard time deciding on the eyebrows, but ultimately I liked his angry look. Of course you can feel free to change the eyebrow placement to get a whole slew of expressions! The pattern for this guy can be found here:

The third pattern is a fun and playful Frankenstein.

Since I went angry with the monster, I decided to make Franky a little more playful. I guess he is just happy to be alive!! The pattern for Franky can be found here:

And last for today is a bubbling Witch’s Cauldron.

I have always loved the look of a bubbling witch’s brew. Is she making spells and potions, or just dinner? You can get the pattern for the cauldron here:

That’s it for today!! I have a few more in the works that will get posted soon, but I had so much fun making these ones. I hope other people enjoy them as much as me.

Happy Quilting!
