#MakeSomeHappy: Fall Square to Stitch or Sew

November 04, 2020

JABC - Fall Square to Stitch or Sew



That's our motto as we ship handmade and hand-dyed buttons for the projects that keep hands busy and hearts happy-- #makesomehappy.

Lots of people are uncovering UFO's or treasured patterns saved for a rainy day, but if you are ready for something new, here's a sweet Fall Square that's simple enough to make for gifts and it's button-able -- maybe even from your stash.

What will you make?

You'll find a link below to print both a cross stitch chart and a pattern for applique.  Whether you stitch or sew, we think you'll enjoy turning the Fall Square into a mug rug, candle mat or simple framed piece. 

The design is planned for a 6 x 6" area--on 14 ct. fabric if you are cross stitching. DMC floss colors are suggested, but the pumpkin and flower would stitch up even faster using hand-dyed floss.

JABC - Fall Square Applique

For an applique version of the Fall Square, use our full-size patterns.  We drew shapes for a flower in two shades of yellow and a pumpkin in three shades of orange, but if you are using your stash of hand-dyed felted wool, you may choose to cut fewer layers. Add hand embroidery for the details. We show cross stitches for the border, but any stitch will do--or even a row of buttons!


Got buttons?

If you ordered a Fall Blackbird Mix, you have the buttons we show in the images--small blackbird, small green pumpkin and small yellow maple leaf.  Of course we added seasonal Sprinkles!   Here's a "button spill" of the Fall Blackbird Mix.
