This new pattern is to honor those smart, but obnoxiously annoying birds.
There must be something to like about crows … I just haven’t figured it out other than to make them somewhat cute on a candle mat design!
The finished size of this candle mat is 14” round. The picture shows it made with 100% wool but woolfelt can easily be substituted for any or all of the wool requirements to help save on expense.
The special new release price for this pattern is $8.00 which includes shipping to anywhere in the US or Canada. It will be $.75 more for all other international orders. (i’ntl customers email me before paying please) The pattern price will go up to the regular selling price of $9.50 on Thursday, so order now to save $$.
An instant downloadable E-Pattern is available for this design. The price for the E-Pattern is $5.00. The E-pattern can be downloaded at Pattern Mart or at The Pattern Cupboard
If you wish to pay by check instead of Paypal, just email me
firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you my mailing address info.
I have wool kits available to go along with the pattern too.
The price is $38.00 including the shipping cost and the pattern.
That price includes all the washed and felted wool fabric* needed to make this.
(100% wool …no woolfelt)
*my own hand-dyed green background, orange & gold wools. The wool for the crows is a speckled black wool.
If interested in the wool kits, just email me email@example.com and I’ll send you an invoice for payment.
Happy Day everyone!

Somewhere, in a previous post, I made mention of how much I dislike crows.
Real crows are annoying, obnoxious, loud and GIANT PESTS. If you’ve ever had crows nesting in trees close to your house, you will understand completely.
I know they’re popular in primitive decorating so managing my distaste for them, I have included crows in some of my designs.
However, I have always said that the crows that I draw for designs will always be nasty and realistically crow-like. I’ve refused to make them adorable and cute …..
Gosh …. until now!
“DaMn Crows” but that really wouldn’t be appropriate, I guess.
We’ve been fortunate the last year or so to NOT have nesting crows on our property. Sure, I can hear them once in a while, cawing and being obnoxious, but they’re not waking me in the morning.
That’s probably the main reason why I’m so willing to make some cute crows. But I think I jinxed myself because wouldn’t you know it …
I was just finishing up some of the very last stitches on this yesterday morning when I went to the front door, opened it to let in fresh air, only to see TWO &!!# CROWS out in the driveway!
And since I mentioned finishing up the last stitches on this … does this always happen to you too ?…
Anyway, the new crow design pattern should be ready to sell on Monday. I still have to think of a name for it …. leaving curse words out!
Happy Day everyone!
