12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun…. Day 10

Woooo, day 10 already … where has the time gone?? Just two more days and we’ll be done. Please remember, no patterns will be posted this weekend. You can download this pattern today tho all weekend long for those of you who can’t get around daily to download them.

Today’s patterns are influenced by another memory of my childhood. When I was very young and wondered about the great Santa Claus and how he was going to get into our house because we didn’t have a fireplace, my dad would tell me that the Santa poster on our door would let Santa know he was free to walk right in… I remember that poster so well, it was HUGE!!! and a big jolly Santa with his big bag of toys swung over his shoulder. It had a vinyl-like surface that would keep it free from getting weathered and we had that poster on our door for many years. It’s little traditions like that, that keep my memories of Christmas in my heart.

So, I have created a series of patterns that are aimed specifically at going on the door in any part of your house. While today’s pattern is not a full door pattern, it gives you the same technique used for those door patterns and will help you down the road should you decide to create one of the full door patterns. Today’s pattern is the “pieced” pattern I mentioned on the first day of 12 Days that you’ll be getting. All the Door Knockers are pieced patterns.

These cute patterns are specifically created for a door. One for a window. While you can display the also as wall hangings or bed decor they are fun no matter what you do with them.

They are in a variety of widths and heights to fit the various types of doors out there.

Some of them have an alternate version where the hat or the dress is different, perhaps a bag is added… You get to choose which pattern you’d like to do.

They each cost 12.50 and you’ll save 25% off thru December 25, 2019, by using the coupon code:

Basic Guidelines For This Event:

All downloads expire at the time of the next release or hopefully within 24 hours of the last post. During this event, I have two doctor’s appointments in the next 12 days, so posting tomorrow and next Wednesday maybe later in the day. Those of you who know me, that no matter what a previous days download stays up for 24 hours at the very least, after 24 hours it’s subject to expiration. I am very strict about this requirement. I will not send you a free pattern if you miss the deadline.

Patterns posted on Fridays, run the entire weekend giving my weekend visitors a chance to get at least one pattern during this event. I didn’t do this last year and I was sad about being so strict, so I’ve gone back to keeping them up for the weekend.

All downloads are on Payhip. – Payhip doesn’t like mobile downloads, so be prepared to send it to your email, Dropbox, google drive, or any other cloud service you may use if you are using a mobile device to download with. All payhip items are sent an email with the download link even tho you can download right after the purchase in your browser. If you’re on a mobile phone tho, wait until your on a device that you can use later. I do not own any mobile devices, so I do not know how to send it to your email, or a cloud service, I’m sure there are youtube videos or how to’s on the web to help you with this. Please get your download done the same day, as I delete these downloads after the expiration and they are removed from Payhip servers, they are not there forever for you to download freely.

If I made a mistake on a free pattern, the update will be fixed and everyone who downloaded it within the proper time frame will receive an email with the new download link to download it. You have 24 hours to get that done.

I will try to be posted by 6 am mst each day, but I’m not known for being on time during this event, so please know I will post as soon as possible. I’ve always ended this event on time tho, so don’t worry all 12 patterns will get posted.


Some thoughts on download issues. If you’re having a problem, try a different browser. You can always use the email you receive to click again. You get 5 tries to download the pattern. If you use all 5, you will have to go through the purchase process again to get the free pattern.

  1. Well, I did get the soldier for free but I fell for the angel and the gnome so I *urchased those today. Couldn’t wait! I may come back for more, I need to think on what my boys want for their homes. This is something truly different- not another *illow, etc. Thanks to you and your cohorts for the *atterns. As you know *= the letter between O-Q.

  2. You do seem to like the nutcracker or toy soldier in the ballet, The Nutcracker… Maybe it’s the uniform? 😁
