Christmas sewing!

Well after seeing all the Christmas ads on tv, and especially the Coca Cola one (it's like a tradition in our house, being the first one to spot it on the TV lol!), I thought I should sew something Christmassy!
I thought I'd have a go at sewing something a bit different from my usual fare, as there are only so many Kindle, Ipad, and phone cases you can sew before you go mad lol!
I picked the reindeer from the beautiful Scandinavian Needlecraft book. I've never made anything like this, and certainly never done decorative hand stitching - still, I think it turned out ok for a first attempt lol!


Thanks for looking

And here it is . . .

Jamie's wardrobe for the Sewing Mamas Ottobre Sewing With a Plan contest!

(I got all the patterns from one issue - 1/2011)



It was awesome fun, and I think my favourite thing of the whole contest were these photo poses I got while trying to get 'proper' shots for the composite picture above - this boy REALLY loves the camera!




Here are some 'detail' shots - there was a LOT of stitching lol!






So wish me luck...we find out on the 8th November who has won!

Thanks for looking
