Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

Star Sachet or Stuffed Star Ornament Crochet Pattern

For today’s freebie, I found a Star Sachet crochet pattern that could just as easily be a pretty ornament. It’s from a 1944 Spool Cotton Co. booklet titled Crochet Your Gifts.

You crochet the two sides, embroider the design on, then sew the edges together leaving an opening to stuff with batting or potpourri and add a ribbon hanger.

These are done with thread rather than yarn. Clark’s “Brilliant” is considered a fine thread, along the lines of Size 10 bedspread cotton. You’ll need embroidery floss in a contrasting color for the embroidered decoration and the crochet hook used is Size No. 8.

This would make a nice gift filled with potpourri like this Organic Dried Jasmine Flowers or Hibiscus Flowers.

 

 

If you’d rather make this a stuffed ornament, this Aunt Lydia’s Metallic Gold crochet thread would be fun. Also white with gold embroidery or red with green embroidery, etc. It’s up to you.

Nancy Cabot’s Poinsettia Applique Quilt Pattern

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

I hope those in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with family and friends.

Nancy Cabot Poinsettia Applique Quilt Block

 

With today’s freebie we are going to jump right into Christmas with a Poinsettia Applique pattern from quilt designer Nancy Cabot that was first issued in the Chicago Tribune Newspaper in 1933.

I found the actual clipping from the newspaper archives online.

It’s not very readable, but gives you an idea of what this quilt block pattern looked like in it’s original form.

You can find a bit of history about Nancy Cabot Newspaper Quilt Patterns in this article on the Illinois Quilt History site.

Another great site about these Nancy Cabot (her real name was Loretta Leitner Rising) patterns is on Early Women Masters dot Net which has an index of her quilt designs.

I’ve recreated the full size pattern with instructions. This is an ambitious project to finish for an experienced quilter.

With the many pieces to cut out to make the applique block, using fusible web would probably be the best way to do it.

This Thermoweb 17-Inch by 5-Yard Heat’n Bond Ultra Hold Iron-On Adhesive is a best seller on Amazon, but there are many others to choose from.

 

 

 

You’ll find several different poinsettia quilt block patterns by Nancy Cabot in this book — Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Applique.  Also in it is a very similar poinsettia applique block by Grandmother Clark.

Here is the page of pattern pieces. Remember there is no sewing allowance included so the quarter-inch seam allowance will need to be added when cutting them out.
