Handmade Christmas // Sewn

Christmas Fabric Palette

Every holiday, I want to dig into my fabric bins and sew, sew, sew.  Like everyone else, my time is limited, but finishing a few small projects makes me so happy!

I made the fabric swatches into little buntings. Each fabric is 3.5″ square; I measured the smallest scrap and went from there. I used Pellon Craft Fuse on the back (I have tried a few interfacings and this one seems to hold up best), and then a pre-made bias tape. I love how they turned out. I made three and sent them to friends in Virginia as a little Christmas-I-love-you gift. My daughter also made one for her room out of a mini charm pack! So easy and fun.

Hello Darling Geranium Dress

I’m making the baby a Geranium Dress (it is all cut out!), and made my six-year old a Roller Skate Dress out of the same fabric yesterday (more on that next week!) I highly recommend both patterns. They are really similar, but I liked the gathered waist for my older daughter.  The fabric is a Hello Darling print by Bonnie and Camille. It just screams Christmas, don’t you think?? Bonus: It is still widely available.



This year’s go-to teacher gift was a key fob (Liberty Lifestyle and Blueberry Park Fabric) and a gift card. Easy. Quick. Happy.

Have a great weekend!
