wolvesqlt.jpg (29735 bytes)The Critter Pattern Works was started in 1989 by designer Debora Konchinsky to fill a need in the marketplace. There were no realistic animal appliqués sold for sewing enthusiasts and quilters! Click here to go to Critter Pattern Works home page.

Even today, there is no other company doing these kind of designs -- Critter Patterns features animal-appliqué patterns grouped by themes. Designs range from categories such as Farmyard Friends, to animals from a single species (cats, rabbits, or frogs), to a collection of Arctic Critters or Australian Critters. Critter Pattern Works now has 46 appliqué patterns and two patterns for clothing which are geared toward appliqué decoration. One of their newest patterns is Wolves, a pattern which explores applique and drawing with the sewing machine (raw edge applique).

Even though she designs the patterns, instead of copying what she has worked out, Debora expects you to do something different with her animal-themed appliqué patterns! There are so many possibilities -- you can make your project as complicated or as easy as you want by limiting the number of designs you choose to use! You can even isolate one element from a pattern and use it for simple projects like the placemats to the right.

Debora Konchinsky lectures about using your own creative juices to make original, non-repetitive work which is exciting and fun. She gives lectures at many of the shows The Critter Pattern Works attends. Check out her online seminar "Take a Flying Leap to Creativity" in the Get Creative! Conference Center.
