Handmade Holiday 2012
Before I wrap up last year's happenings and talk a bit about 2013, I want to share a few final projects from last year. I tried again to give some handmade gifts, and I think they were well received! The biggest one was a table runner for my parents new home. They have a giant table and so it's hard to find tablecloths and runners for it. I choose Bari J's Splendor 1920 fabric line to make this simple (but giant) runner. I cut 8"x22" strips of each print (20 total), and stitched them together to create a 152" long runner.
Pure Element, Nocturnal.
Anna's awesome wide open zipper pouch tutorial. We gave her a new carry on suitcase so I made it to match! I used prints from Rhapsodia and blenders from Art Gallery Fabrics.
quilt as you go method again, so they're pretty sturdy.
Quick Scarf Tutorial, except I used two 1/2 yards of flannel rather than voile, with no trim.
I'll be back soon to share my favorite projects from 2012!
