Maybe you are thinking of this!? Have you cleaned up after all the present unwrapping that has been going on? Have you taken down your decorations?
But I was thinking of this actually .....the last two Christmas bags or pouches I had partly made.... Two star blocks here in Christmas fabric with a lot of hand quilting which is nice enough - ooh you can tell I made these a while ago by the dark colours!
Now the other side with the nativity scene had not been even started - so how to marry the traditional Christmas colours with something a bit brighter...well put both styles of fabric in and hope for the best of course.
What do you think!?
The angel one has a bit of a wonky log cabin round it - think she has been celebrating a bit too much...
And the Magi has a rail fence border suggested by the print....think this one has worked out better...
Both are bound so no nasty raw edge seam inside as each has a Christmas fabric interior - slightly marrred by the seams at the zip - may have to think of a way over that little problem....mmmm!
Very useful for holding some of the many scraps I have and it looks pretty too!
Anyway the bags are done for now though I still have more of this printed nativity scene fabric so I could carry on a bit longer....or leave it till about this time next year no doubt!
Happy New Year everyone! Looking forward to 2012 are you?
