When Jennifer asked me to join in this blog hop I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
Since buying the Little Quilts book by Sarah Fielke and Amy Lobsiger, I had been eager to get a little hand-quilting action going, so this was the perfect opportunity to give a festive twist to one of my favourites…
I used the paper doll templates as the basis for Santa, gave him trousers and a felt beard, and topped Mr and Mrs Claus off with a hat...
I actually followed the pattern for the rest, no, really!
In a first for me, I used pre-made bias-bindng, and OMG isn't it good?! I wouldn't use it on anything bigger, but it was lovely to work with on this mini.
Despite photographic staging to the contrary, cups of tea and mince pies will not be making themselves at home on this mini; food and fabric, they just don't go! But it does already have pride of place on a side table, with a wipe-clean coaster for company ;)
I hope this has inspired to you put a little Christmas cheer into a little make or two, you still have time, and if you haven't already, take a little time to check out the other Merry Hoppers.
Thank you for having me Jennifer, and now you can all get back to panicking xxx
