2012 Calender

This design is gorgeous. I bought the calenders and there is a space left up the top to embroider and embelish how you would like.
The calenders are made from a heavy material and are really hard to embroider. The machine needle gets blunt really quick but well worth the effort.

Embroidered Tea Towels

I have been busy for the last couple of weeks getting ready for the Markets. We have not had markets in our small for many years. So everyone is looking foward to Saturday 3rd December. These are just some of the tea towels that I have embroidered, I have also embroidered baby bibs, Christmas T Shirts and towels. I have made some headbands and hair clips for the little girls, felt playfood and lots of other goodies. Should be lots of fun.

Christmas Stocking

I finished this Christmas Stocking for the Friday Night Sew In. Great to get something else finished out of the way.
I found this Christmas Stocking panel in my stash and decided to make it for Cooper. The other 2 boys have large stockings like this one.
I used wadding between the panel and inside piece and quilted the front and to make the back piece I sandwiched wadding between 2 pieces of red fabric and quilted it on my machine. I then sewed the 2 pieces together and overlocked the seam. I finished it off with binding around the top.

Table Runner.

 I chose this table runner to make for our Christmas Gift exchange in our sewing group. It is very easy and quick to make.  I love the Australian Wildflower fabric.   I embroidered some bottle brush on the centre piece of the cream fabric but I didn't like so I just used the wildflower fabric.  I will be making some of these for myself.  Here is the link to to the table runner pattern. Check out the site for a lot of other great patterns.
Have Fun !!!

Bag Challenge.

We had to decorate a green (blue) bag as our challenge for this year in our sewing group. I loved this design as soon as I saw it.  As I have no little girls I decided to use it on the bag.  I think it is perfect for a shopping bag. I embroidered the design on a piece of fabric and then unpicked the handle straps and placed the embroidered fabric under the handle straps and stitched them down again. I also made the embroidered fabric long enough so that I could turn it over at the top as well.
