Christmas in July
This past week, I finished attaching the pockets to the ribbon and doing little knots of fabric between the pockets (so the pockets won't slip).
Sophia and Olivia are wondering what I'm going to put in the pockets this Christmas.
When I was cleaning my office and organizing my fabric, I came across a bag of Christmas fabric. The girls and I took a look at the different items and chose what each of us wanted to make. So far:
- Olivia made a stuffed Santa toy (it's probably a good 18"-24" high),
- Sophia embellished and then quilted a wall-hanging from a pre-printed quilt piece, and
- I've made an apron, two potholders, an oven mitt, and wall-hanging.
This has been so much fun making these items plus the advent calendar. There's something to be said about crafting for Christmas in July. It's so much more relaxing and enjoyable than trying to craft when things are more hectic.
There are some Christmas items in my Etsy shop (Harvest Moon by Hand) that are available right now. If you purchase 2 items, I'm offering 15% off your order (excluding shipping).
