Mystery CAL Week 1 - Unit 1

Updated: Jan 31

Week 1 - Unit 1 of the Mystery CAL starts today! YIPPEE! I am so excited! Remember this is supposed to be fun and if you do not have the exact colors that is ok! Just use what you have laying around and see how it comes out!

The fun part will be seeing all the crazy fun photos at the end! Don't worry, I will have prizes available for the applique that comes out closest to the design and for the design that comes out the silliest! So have fun with it!


Once the pattern is revealed at the end, you will get a PDF copy and you can always make it for other projects the exact way that you want! The bonus is that since this is an applique you can easily make as many of these as needed for blankets, bags, wall decor, etc relatively quickly!


Don't forget that on February 12th is when I will do the pattern reveal and give the assembly instructions! I highly recommend using zip loc bags or envelopes to keep your pieces together and be sure to label them! This will make assembly much easier at the end!


There will be a Facebook post in the announcements that will correspond with this unit. You can put additional questions and comments under that post! That is also where you will place your guesses at the title of this pattern! Feel free to post progress photos there too!



Whoever gets closest to the exact name of this pattern will win a "yarn prize!" You have unlimited guesses up until Feb 12th so guess away!


So here we go!
