I haven't done an update on Making Christmas since my first list (blogged here) so thought it was high-time I checked to see where I'm at. Thankfully, I'm happy with my progress - and even a little surprised. Go me! ;)
1. Robot Embroidery Library Bag
2. Personalised Cushions / Pillows
I've made a start on one of these - with the top pieced and ready to applique with our niece's first initial, 'L'.
For this one I went with a simple patchwork design, using the same fabrics as the Owl Plus quilt - as it is for the same littlie. Hopefully they work together well, without being too over-the-top.
3. Kindle Cover
Absolutely no progress on this one. Sorry Mum.
4. Bear Paw Quilt
No progress on this one either but as bub is still yet to arrive I'm ok with that. ;)
5. Toffee Shards Quilt
6. Wonky Stars Quilt
This top has been done for nearly two weeks now - but other than choosing a backing fabric nothing else has happened here.
Have I ever mentioned that I hate basting?! ;)
7. Softies for Mirabel
I've decided on an easy pattern (Barthelomew Bunny by Shiny Happy World) and have already cut out most of the pieces. Now I just need to rummage through my mess and relocate my felt stash for the hands, feet, nose and tail.
Of course, the rummaging-through-my-mess part doesn't sound like my idea of a good time and, as I've been itching to do something about the horror that is my sewing room I thought I might add to my original list...
8. Reorganisation of my Sewing Room (*new*)
Granted, this isn't a make but, as it is integral to the success of future endeavours, I'm going to include it here.
I mean, seriously, something has to be done! My first plan is to steal these gorgeous scrap buckets. ;)
So how are your makes for Christmas shaping up? Don't forget to keep checking in each Saturday for added inspiration - and keep remembering to link up with your progress reports (*ahem*).
Linking up with M-R. Hop over to see her post showing you how to make your own festive Card Holder.
