The Christmas in July workshop is over for another year. Two days of fun, lots of laughter, good company and yummy food. Wouldn't it be bliss if every weekend could be spent sewing with friends and someone else doing the cooking.
There was a mix of projects, a quilt, felt appliqued tree skirt, felt decorations and simple tags. The girls could work on whichever project took their fancy. There were quite a few felt decorations made.....
and tree skirts started.......
Else and Beth decided to raw edge applique theirs. They looked fantastic. I particularly liked the birds and baubles. The girls swapped baubles for added variety.
Deanna and Sue's felt applique. I'm can't wait to see Sue's finished. I would not have thought to use a blue background for the tree skirt.
There is no rule you have to make the workshop projects.
It's never too early to start planning for Christmas.
I'll be demonstrating how to make these Christmas Tags at the Melbourne Craft & Quilt Fair this month. Once you see the simple technique, it will be possible to create a variety of tags to hang from the tree or tie to gifts.
The free demonstration takes place daily at 1pm in the Christmas in June area.
Come and take a peek at these and many more Christmas projects at
Another sample ready for the Melbourne Craft & Quilt Fair next month. I love making this scissor keep for the Airline friendly scissors. It's so quick to do and so much fun coordinating the fabrics. This ones a little different with a button in place of the yo-yo. You'll find kits for the Scissor Keep, including the scissors on Stand G29.
