I have a few Christmas projects to share, along with fabrics in gingham, stripes, florals, and dots patterns!
The above photo is of a bright red kitchen towel that my husband gave me for Christmas (he knows I love red, such as in this red suede leather wristlet I made – the red leather was so pretty!!). I decided to decorate it with embroidered holly leaves and a crocheted/beaded border.
The above two photos are of a Christmas bunting I made for our living room. I knitted each triangle and then decorated each one with blanket stitches and appliqued candles.
The above dishcloths are knitted. The first two are from a raised knitted stitch that I found in a book and HAD to try – it was so fun to work on it!
I made this blue patchwork cross-body reversible bag for my daughter. She picked out all the fabrics and asked me to design the patchwork pattern. I love the colour combinations she chose! She has great design sense, such as in this yellow patchwork comforter cover and this purple and pink patchwork skirt she designed herself!
Finally, below are photos of my latest thrift store fabric acquisitions!!! I wish I could have taken better photos of some of the below, but I couldn’t. Anyway, as always, I collected more floral vintage cotton sheets and pillowcases. I also spied a wonderful black silk shirt with big red polka-dots!!! And my latest craze is to collect cotton shirts with stripes, polka-dots, or gingham checks – these will look great in combination with floral fabrics in bags or quilt tops.
Thanks for reading along about my latest projects!
