Bareroots has a charming collection of small 9-inch round candle/coffee mug mats, all handmade from felts. Each design comes as the line pattern WITH all the necessary and correct pieces of felt to cut out to make your mat. Simply trace the patterns (freezer paper works well to adhere a little to the felt for easy cutting), cut out and tack together to create your mini-masterpiece! You can get crazy with lots of Blanket Stitches or not... these are cute anyway you make them. Best of all... there is a backing piece of felt in your packet, so all your knots and carried threads on the backside are COVERED!
In The Woods, and Sewing!
Bareroots has two new candle mats that are DARLING!!! Joining our huge collection of these approximately 9-inch round coffee cup or candle mats, one features the cutest set of small owls, and the other speaks to all of us *Needle People!* Offered as the line drawing patterns, you trace the outlines onto freezer paper to transfer onto your felts. Cut out everything... whip stitch a little (they aren't even Blanket Stitches!) add a bead here and there... and you're finished!
About a year ago, Bareroots started compiling all the felts, flosses and any necessary beads into pre-packs for each of her mat designs. Now... you get EVERYTHING in the perfect colors and sizes to make her little mats! We love 'em! Get one pattern and several felt packs if you want to make more than one of anything... the puppies and kittens are cute... we have Christmas and Halloween designs... lots of cute stuff!
This is a set of miniature wool candle mats... all created with our Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed wools!!! NO Cross Stitches involved... no sewing machines... these are tiny 10-inch round mini-mats -- doilies -- if you will. Designed to be Straight Stitched out of wool pieces... think about Punch Needle for these! Offered as the line drawings, they are PERFECT for punch, as well as the wool!
Now, in most Primitive-Stitch wool projects, you Blanket Stitch everything together. Blanket gets confusing when you run out of thread and turn corners... but these aren't like that! These just use little TACK STITCHES to attach everything! Look at the little chicks -- you can really see what I mean on that one!
These are absolutely the most charming little things! You'll need a 1/4 cut of Weeks wool for your background piece... choose black, it's the 1/2-inch piece showing as the outside border. Then, we sell *millions* of Schnigglet pieces -- 8 x 8-ish in size -- and several of those are all you need for all the cut-outs! If you're going to punch instead... use a 3 strand needle... or even a 6 stand for the background!
Absolutely nothing to do with Cross Stitch... I fell in LOVE with these when I saw them... I couldn't help myself, and I bought them all!!!
Offered as a line drawing with felt pack.
More Little Stitchies
We carry a line of darling 8-inch miniature candle mats that can be made of fabrics, but these use our Weeks Dye Works wools! The patterns feature simple line drawings -- actual sized -- for your mat. After cutting out all your wool shapes, (freezer paper works as a great stabilizer and ironing aide), simply TACK the pieces into the base piece of wool!
These don't even call for Buttonhole Stitches -- just little straight tacking stitches!!! Anyway, just charming, we have 5 new designs to add to our collection!
New Little Stitchies
Bareroots does the cutest 9-inch wool felted candle mats -- they have been shop favorites for years! Our models aren't finished yet... so the cover pics will have to do for the time being... but each is presented as the line drawings. You choose your favorite colors and prints of the wools, trace, cut, and simply whip stitch them together!
We sell all the Week Dye Works Wools for these. You can get the larger 1/4 yd chuck for the backing piece, and them numerous Schnigglet Cuts (approx 9 x 9) for all your different pieces. Nothing hard about them at all... just packed full of CUTENESS!
Needle, Thread & Bits: A Notions Bag and Thread Roll Set
This is the cutest thing from Bareroots! NOT Cross Stitch at all -- you have to have a sewing machine or a really good friend with one to make this! Presented as a kit of the pattern along with all the felts and canvas, wooden spool, flosses and pearl cottons, ticking and even the super-heavy plastic for the little window... you will need a few pins and some metal from a tape measure (for the opener on the pouch.)
You'll construct the 10 x 6 x 2 Notions pouch out of the heavy muslin canvas-y fabric, adding the plastic window, lining it with ticking, and garnishing with the primitive-stitched words and tiny pink felt flowers. The top pulls apart -- reinforced with those tape measure pieces inside. Then, there is a Needle and Floss Roll (4 x 21) -- made of everything that matches the pouch, and finally the 2-inch wooden spool with a matching top pin cushion tuffet 2-1/2 inch square! (you can even make little felt-trimmed pins for it!) A super-cute set... it just caught my eye!
Forest Friends Finger Puppets
Something else too darn cute from Bareroots! This is a set of five 2-inch felt finger puppets -- a bear, bunny, squirrel, owl and tree. Each finishes a mere 2-inches high, and is made from the included felts. A nice smattering of browns, golds and greens... your little animals will look just like they do in the pic!
Simple cutting and blanket stitching. Each little guy is open along the bottom so a finger fits inside! Offered as the pattern with the felts and threads.
Wraps and Mini-Mats!
Oh Wow... make a mini 5-inch mat for a candle, vase or your coffee mug... and if any still seems underdressed... make a matching wrap-around for them! Same fun artwork as in our Candle Mats... each of these packages contains a mini-bottom mat pattern, and TWO coordinating wrap patterns.
