new put-together books and a freebie!

The Put-together Book No. 1 for Kitty, Bunny and Bear is back in stock and in the store here. Or follow the beautiful new shop sign (thanks Tim!) on the sidebar.

I want to thank everybody for all their wonderful, kind, supportive comments about the pattern books. And of course for the orders! I just love seeing all your creations pop up, all the different fabric choices and different little faces, even boys (Clifford and Lars are making me so happy).

I wanted to make a little thank you present for patternbook owners and this is what I came up with, a pattern for a little handknit sweater for your kitty, bunny or bear. The Stockinette Cardigan is now available with the free downloads. I’m no knitwear designer so my fingers are crossed that the pattern makes sense. Go easy on me.

    I’ve been meaning to drop you a note to say thank you. The pattern book is so great. I’m still working on making my first, a kitty. This will be my first sewn softie, so I am excited. Thank you for the sweater pattern as I do love to knit.

    Can’t wait for my book to arrive! Now I’ll have to try my knitting skills out again for the tiny cardi (all I can really make are scarves!). Thank you!

    Hillary, you are so incredibly talented and generous of spirit! I’ve been wanting to learn to knit after inheriting all my grandma’s old knitting needles – I guess now I have my first project! And thanks for giving the shout out to Clifford. He’ll be so pleased.

    Thank you Hillary! I just finished sewing up my bear, and can’t wait to make this precious sweater! I was toying with the idea of designing a small wardrobe for my stuffeds,and this pattern gave me the push. Thanks again!

    DARN IT! I would love to knit the bear I’m working on a sweater, but I can’t knit!!! It’s adorable though, and I may just have to come up with something out of a felted thrifted sweater to make up for my lack of knitting skills, thanks so much for the idea!

    Hillary, a kitty wearing this fantastic sweater will be PERFECT for my daughter’s third birthday at the end of August! Thank you so much! I can get started on the sweater now while I wait for the pattern book to arrive. YAY!!!! (Can you tell how excited I am?)

  8. Rebecca says:

    Yay!! When the patterns first came out I wasn’t sure I wanted them, but when they sold out I was so dissapointed that I knew I had to have them. Thanks for doing a second printing!!

    Holy cow! I ordered my book on Monday and it was in my mailbox the next day! Awesome!
    I have a question just because I notice weird things like this and I’d totally do the same thing…any significance to the time on the cover?
    Okay, that sounds totally fan-creepy-crazy – sorry! Just curious!

    I love the sign Tim made! I consider your site to be one of those “I wish I had a cool site like Wee Wonderfuls” pages.
    Not that you asked me or anything, but signs for each of the sections would also be cute. Like a big sign that says “My Projects” with little dangle signs that say “Toys & Dolls” and “Quilts” and so on.
    You are so talented and so is Tim! I’m so jealous!

Yay for me! I already have all my materials set adise for the first kitty and now I am raiding my stash for yarn to make a matching cardi! Wheeee

  13. sarah says:

    Clifford reminds me of my Uncle Clifford! The overalls, the denim. . .very cool. Lars is A-Mazing! : ) Thanks for sharing everything and I’m glad you’re finding success with your business!

    wanted to chime in that i received my put-together book #1 today, and LOVE IT! it is way better than i imagined. and the “thank you” card, where on earth did you find such a small sweet sewing machine?
    is your apartment like 15,000 square feet? you have so many treasures hidden in there! ๐Ÿ™‚
    i am so looking forward to #’s 2 & 3, but especially 3 — robots! (I have nephews)

  15. yinbbub says:

    i was the first person to comment and i wasn’t kidding about making the sweater before the plush! just finished with the sweater and just one tip – be sure the seam of the sleeve isnt visible from the front ;> that’s what happens when you rush, but im leaving it. i used a variegated pink/wht/lilac/fuschia cotton yarn for more of a “summer” feel. thanks again for the pattern!

  16. Amy says:

    I GOT MY BOOK!!!

    but this looks totally do-able.
    Thanks so much!!
    Love and Laughter,

    Please please please can you tell me if you’d consider wholesaling your patterns in stores? I have a wee shop in New Zealand ( and would love to sell your wee wonderful patterns as we sell sublime stitching patters and they are a huge hit with our customers. Also do you sell your dolls? probably a silly question but I’d love to get some for the shop too. How amazingly talented you are!

    I received your Kitty, Bunny & Bear pattern today. It’s adorable. I mentioned it on my website – if that’s okay with you.
