Just finishing up the last of my Christmas sewing now. Though with 6 days to go I still have 1/2 my modern Christmas tree quilt to get finished!!! :0
Anyway, I got a couple of little gift done today. I made this simple oven mitt using some string blocks I made a few months ago.
I played around with the layout of the blocks trying to decide which one I liked best.. mmm this one's good..
but I like this option too..
and this was pretty cool too...
I lined it with special heat proof wadding to ensure no one gets their fingers burnt and did some very close machine quilting before binding it in a matching red stripe! Love it... might make another one for my pending new kitchen!
I also made a couple other quick gifts - firstly, a cute scented pillow. I used a hot pink painted heart I made back here and did a little running stitch around the outside before stuffing it with toy stuffing and a couple sprigs of rosemary from my garden.
Rosemary is a great alternative to lavender if you want to try it - it's supposed to help with headaches, improve mental alertness and ease muscle aches and pains....personally I just love the smell!
And some covered coat hangers similar to those I made back here.
Well this is my last post before Christmas - I hope you have got lots of sewing done and wishing you a lovely Christmas with those you love.
