I did a lot of sewing leading up to the holidays that I haven’t shown yet.
Krankies Craft Fair was the weekend of December 13th and it was better for ::kaitcetera:: than I could have imagined! I sold 4 quilts (the three on the left and one not pictured)!Two of the quilts included some custom embroidery work that I just recently completed and was really happy with. It makes the gift so much more personal and sweet.
On the Far Far Away plus quilt, I embroidered the recipients name over the quilting, which I had never done, and it turned out great. The label on the back was embroidered first and then sewn on. I made some iPad and Kindle cases for the fair that were fun and did well. I also made a few more crayon and colored pencil rolls which people love!
I most enjoyed making some quick patchwork Christmas pillows. I started cutting 2½” squares of red and green to make stockings for me and the pups but decided on pillows instead. I quilted them with a heavy 12 weight Aurifil thread and I loved it. It really makes the simple stitching pop.
