I said early on I wasn't going to do any Christmas sewing. Didn't want to have the pressure to create and couldn't put myself on a timetable like that. Then, I changed my tune and decided that any Christmas sewing time I normally would have spent I would instead spend assembling and quilting tops for Hurricane Sandy folks. So, I went on my merry way and made up a whole Sandy quilt and still had left over time. So, I did it... I gave in to some Christmas sewing which went like this...
We added a small two foot tree to the Christmas decor this year and it was in sore need of a wee Christmas tree skirt. I decided the Sproket Pillow from Cluck Cluck Sew would be the perfect template! I used a layer cake of Christmas patterned fabrics and went to town.
Finishing it off with a bit of red binding was the perfect touch.
I also had trouble resisting making a few Zippered Bow Pouches from See Kate Sew. These are easy, adorable, and great for holding a little sweet or toy as promised.
Did you get suckered into the whiz-whirl of holiday sewing?
