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!
