Finishing up Christmas from Stitchin at Home

I had a couple things to finish up for Christmas.


Shortbread cookies done! Some have coloured sugar and others have sprinkles
I haven't found a cookie press I like yet, tried one took it back. The next best thing is to roll them out and use a cookie cutter. The recipe is the one in my Virtual Cookie Exchange, you can find it here.

14 straw sleeves. The labels have their names and what they are as there will be someone who has no idea what they are
This one started out simple enough, my oldest grandson wanted a ...

A Little Christmas Gift Sewing from Stitchin at Home

First up some Barbie doll clothes. One of my granddaughters is not too happy with her dad. She cleaned up her bedroom and put her doll clothes collection in a bag unbeknownst to her dad, who you may have already guessed what happened next. He put the bag in the trash. They were some big tears and angry words. So what's a grandma to do but help replace some of her collection and she could use everything including footwear.

Now let me tell you sewing Barbie clothes is not my idea of fun. They are so small turning those ...

Sunday This'n'That from Stitchin at Home

The first item up is a little Christmas sewing. The president of the quilt guild I belong too posted a photo of a Poinsettia Table Runner. I watched the you tube video and was off and running. I liked it and wanted to make one,  Sandra of mmm!quilts would call this a Dreami!

Poinsettia table topper


I decided what size I wanted, cut four of the main fabric, accent or backing and batting. There is a pattern I believe I didn't use it though. Stitched them together, turned, pressed and top stitched. Stitched down the four extra petals ...

Hello, Pouch! from From the Strawberry Patch...

I bought the pattern for the "Hello Pouches" (knot and thread design) and was eager to make some up, I thought that they were cute, functional and a nice alternative to the paper gift bag for small Christmas gifts. I made one up yesterday as a trial. I'm happy to report that it's a well-written pattern with easy to follow instructions and access to online video tutorials. I made the "large"

CHRISTMAS SEWING from Kwilty Pleasures

I didn't get all my Christmas in July projects completed...
but I put a great dent in them.

I need to make the back...maybe a flannel sheet.
It will be for my hubby!



Next up was a Vintage Truck/Christmas Tree project.
I had lots of  fabric to choose from and
the modern take on this pattern had to happen.





I decided I didn ...
