When it's time for tea, set your table with a Dandelion Tea Table Runner! Inspired by the adorable fabric collection Paper Daisies by Sue Daley . Aunt Henri designed this runner to utilize Sue's fat eight panels. What's better than eight prints in one yard of fabric?! Dandelion Tea is made from simple foundation paper pieced blocks that finish at 8" x 10".



Using the fat eighth panel gave us a scrappy looking runner without the hassle of sorting through all our scraps! We were able to make six different blocks with enough leftover to make several more or to use in other projects. Pot holders would be an excellent idea!



The pattern includes two blocks: one right facing and one left facing tea bag.

The tag at the end of the string varies a bit between the two tea bags.




We have Dandelion Tea Table Runner kits (in two colorways), the digital download of the pattern, and fabric available in our shop HERE.

If you have a love for vintage cookie jars, this table runner is for you!

Featuring the fabric collection Snow Sweet by J Wecker Frisch for Riley Blake Designs, this quick project evokes warm memories of holiday baking on cold winter days. If you like one stop shopping, you'll be happy to know that Aunt Henri has started selling kits in our Etsy shop!


We never cease to be inspired by great vintage finds, even if we only find them on Pinterest!

When we came across these classic mid-century goody jars we absolutely had to design something sweet and festive for our kitchen table.



This project is a simple raw edge appliqué that comes together easily and can be adapted into so many projects. Wouldn't they make precious place mats? If you turn your blocks you'll even get a fun wall hanging!



Whether you prefer machine or hand stitching, both methods can employ a variety of stitches and embellishments to make your runner unique.




Make the details stand out with metallic thread and pearl cotton!




Aren't these gingerbread cookies scrumptious? French knots are perfect for eyes and we love the stitched "icing".



And of course, this Sweets Toss makes the perfect backing!



You can find the Vintage Cookie Jar runner pattern, Snow Sweet fabric, & kits in our SHOP.

That's right! What better way to cope with the 90 degree heat in Alabama than to work on Christmas goodies! We're dreaming of snow and baking yummy treats but until that time, here's a bit of Christmas crafting supplies.


This week in Aunt Henri Deux we debuted our Christmas In July section.

Here's a little glimpse to get your creative wheels turning while planning your Holiday projects.


Themed junk journal kits are so fun to make! We dug through our ephemera stash and found lots of vintage Christmas-esque bits to include in the packs such as 1960's bingo tokens, 1950's children's book cut outs, old sewing notion packaging in Christmas colors, vintage stamps, buttons, lace, etc!


Shiny & bright sequin mix bags with glitter cut outs! These have multi-size sequin in holiday colors including some gold stars from the 1970's plus beads and rhinestones.



One item we can't resist at estate sales....old sheet music! These Christmas carols came from a variety of books from the 1950's-1970's. Some pages are colored with illustrations.



Oooh and look at these trim and fabric bundles!



Check out more Christmas fun over at Aunt Henri Deux


Speaking of fabric, boy do we have a treat for you!

Coming later this week.....SNOW SWEET by J Wecker Frisch.

We've been waiting very patiently for this beautiful winter wonderland to arrive. We will be curating fabric bundles and are working on some festive kits that will be available in our main shop. Here's a sneak peek!



If you aren't following us Instagram, make sure to find us @AuntHenri or subscribe to our blog to stay in the know! We have a feeling this collection will be gobbled up fast.

It's quite delicious isn't it?!



Till next time,
