December Scrap-bee-licious blocks finished

This month’s theme of anything Christmas, was very appropriately chosen by  Nicole @ Modern Handcraft. It also allowed me to use my scraps from the Christmas Stocking, use fabrics I have purchased but not used, and finally try out two block patterns I have on my pinterest site.

Block 1: Christmas Tree Block was inspired by this one by Katie’s Korner.

Block 2: Christmas Gift Tags is one of my favorite blocks I have made so far. I used the idea in this flickr image from Ayumi Takahashi. Aren’t they fantastic. I couldn’t find a pattern so I created a paper piecing pattern, where each of the blocks are 6 x 6 inches (finished so this block below is 12 x 12).

If you would like the directions or the paper piecing of either of the two blocks,  let me know and I can share how I made these. ChristmasSrapbeeliciousBlocks

Linking up for Kristy’s Paper Piecing Party.

  2. Gift Card holders for a custom order (1 black, 1 maroon/greens) and my store. I also started writing up a tutorial  (using the black pictures) on how to make them as they are a nice quick and simple project.

  3. My Christmas stocking which I did not start/finish in time for Christmas. Fabric chosen, purchased and arrived.

  4. Chair Bags for my store. I really need make some girlie ones as the ones listed at the moment are more boy friendly. Fabrics are chosen – these three will be appearing in my store soon.
