After a Christmas sewing hiatus, I finally restarted! Tis the Season!
|I've been working on some candle mats to go with the 48 votive candles in glass I got from Amazon ($32.99).|
|The link to the pattern for the trees is here (I made my trunks narrower) and the coaster mats here (looks complicated but so easy!)|
And here's the attic window pillow using winter scene yardage.
|I made an attic windows tutorial for a Christmas in July project back in 2013 with The Crafty Quilter (she has lots of wonderful things on her blog). You can see my tutorial here.|
|I started with some old fabric I bought years ago. It's craft grade so not suitable for a quilt but just fine for a wall hanging or pillow.|
|I cut out this 12 inch piece|
|Cut it into nine 4" squares|
|The sashing is 1 1/2" with 2" squares cut diagonally to make the corner angle.|
|And the window grids are 1" strips.|
|I'm now thinking maybe I should have kept it a wall hanging rather than a pillow. But I've got more of that fabric and I think I'll do a little more fussy cutting to get the scenes in the windows more to my liking.|
