One Christmas Item a Month.....

...... I haven't kept to an item a month ....
.... I left out quite a few months .....
.....  so I need to catch up .....
....these might be small but they were hand stitched ....
.... and they are pretty cute ....


(These tag patterns were a freebie a few years ago from Hugs from Helen
 - just too cute and sewn with one strand of floss)

To finish off the tags I used a double sided iron on pellon and stitched around the borders then cut the edges with pinking shears and threaded ribbon through the top

I also finished off the binding for these little mug rugs - the design is by Allie


you can find the pattern HERE - there are 7 different designs and they are all ultra cute

Narelle hosts One Christmas Item a Month.... and if you want so festive inspiration have a look on THIS page......

you can do more than one though... like I did

we probably need to...... only 3 months till Christmas......

Thanks Narelle for all the encouragment....

Righto, Gotto Go..... Michelle's coming to play today .....

Those little tags are so cute!!! I'm not happy about all the Christmas stuff floating around blogland...I'm in serious denial, Fiona. I love that fabric you used for the mug rugs, and the quilting, too darling!

Great tags. I like the 'please fill' one. The mug rugs look very festive. I really must get some stitchery going.

Wonderful little pieces, it is fun to do small stitcheries. I am on the edge of my rug, so it should be done tomorrow, then I need to get back to my stitcheries.
