More christmas

Trying the new blogger app as I had used my ipad for my last post but half of it was missing! Very annoying. I am not sure how to add pictures from here though as at the moment it is just shown at the bottom corner so no idea if it will be in the post. See in a minute. Previously I was saying about sweetwater at Their patterns and fabrics are just lovely, so please do check them out. They also have printed designs on iron on fabric to add to your projects, I bought some but I also bought some A4 printable fabric from to try my own designs, so ill let you know how we'll that goes. It just goes through an inkjet printer like normal paper, so I hope it turns out well. If there is a picture here? It's of a rag doll in a bassinet that I have made for my cousins daughter. The pattern for the doll is from the book wee wonderfuls by Hilary Lang and the bassinet is from a tutorial at
Back to more christmas sewing now, bought the new cath kidston book of christmas decorations.

Christmas is coming

Hi, here are some of the christmas projects I have been  working on. I made new stockings for my children, first appliqué a design they liked then arranging 2.5 inch squares around it. Two layers of 4 at top and 3 layers of 6 squares underneath. I then just free handed a stocking shape, cut out, layered with batting and lightly quilted. The back was just some charm squares sewn together and lightly quilted.i made it larger so it was easier to place the front right sides together, sewn then cut out. It is lined with plain fabric and binded around the top. It only took on charm pack to make the two stockings so I was very pleased. I also made the snowman table runner from a pattern by sweetwater. It can be found their blog at . It is the cutest thing ever. Their patterns and fabrics are the best
