I was asked to make some bunting for an advent calendar. It was a really fun project - and quite simple once I got going. The triangles were just made from 2 squares of fabric sewn together and then turned inside out before being folded into the bunting flags.
This is a decoration that I made at a sewing evening I helped with during December. It is a perfect project for Christmas and yes not a stitch in sight! A lovely combination of squares, folding and lots of little pins.
And here is my first attempt at quilting. My sister was expecting a baby ( the lovely Jacob has now arrived:) ) and I decided a perfect gift would be a quilt. It grew as I sewed because I kept changing how I wanted things to look so in the end turned out to be more of a play mat but I was still pretty proud of it in the end.
Definitely realized that I am a novice quilter and had a few unpicking sessions along the way but was really proud of the applique!
And I made a few more gifts - some little bags and a night dress but I unfortunately didn't take any photos. I might add them at a later date!
What did you craft over Christmas now the date has passed and we can share our creations?
