Stockings!


Stockings 2014
We are getting close to Christmas so this is finish is none to soon!  With the arrival of our daughter this year we are finally staying home for Christmas, this means that we actually need stocking at our house this year!  I decided to make our stockings this year and had a jelly roll of Aspen frost by Basic Grey in the sewing room.

I used the template from Imagine Gnats and loosely used her tutorial, but used jelly roll strips instead.

They turned out great and I am excited to use them this year.  Now the hard part is deciding who gets each one!

Oh, and this another thing crossed off my Finish a long Q4 list (found here)!

Surfing Penguin


Surfing PenguinSo I am crossing more presents of my Gift list!  I have another pillow finished for someone for Christmas.  It was made to compliment the VW van pillow from last week (which was featured on Sew Cute Tuesday at BlossomHeart Quilts this week, yay!!).  This little penguin is all ready for the beach with his surfboard! I just wish I had some thicker white fabric as you can see through it a bit.

The pillow has an envelope back with surfboards.  I tried to make the surfboard on the front tie in the the backing fabric.  I think it turned out well, and it looks nice hanging out with my Christmas Monkey quilt!

Here are the pillows together – I love how well they go together!  They are now all wrapped up and ready to be shipped off to their new home for Christmas!  One more crossed off my Finish a long list!
