This week I made some Christmas gifts using some of the new Christmas fabric range that we have got at Trixie Lixie, its called Folk Art Holiday
First of all I made some Christmas bunting, this is available to buy as a kit here for £10.00 it includes everything you need to make 3 metres of bunting with full instructions.
Next I made a little half apron using the instructions from Cath Kidston’s book SEW!
There are lots of great things to make in this book,
Sew! Cath Kidston
I also made some quilted pot holders, these were made using 18 x 18cm square pieces of fabric with the edges curved, a piece of wadding sandwiched in the middle and then the edges finished with bias binding.
I can see myself using this fabric for a lot of my Christmas gift making this year.
We have got the complete range of Vintage by Hemmingway fabric in stock! I am so excited because I used to love Red or Dead and I am an avid follower of Wayne & Gerardine Hemmingways vintage exploits! You can read about them on their website at Hemmingway Design. The fabric range is gorgeous I love the Tulips design & the fantastic range of colours; duckegg blue, pale pink, green, blue, red and a beautiful yellow.
The possibilities with this range of fabric is endless! I am thinking clothes, cushions, curtains even lampshades with our new lampshade making kit from NeedCraft.
The first thing I had to make of course was a dress! It’s another Anna dress from ByHand London as it is my absolute favourite dress pattern at the moment.
The dress is made using the Twigs design fabric in red, it was a difficult decision between red and duck egg blue but I thought this colour would be more Autumnal. It is a lovely soft fabric, perfect for dressmaking, shirt weight.
Now to plan what I am going to make next with some more Hemmingway Fabric!
