Made a Xmas table runner yesterday, and the thermal lining was a beggar to sew. Eileen x

Lovely Christmas fabrics Eileen which go so well together on each side.

I have been making a baby/pram cover to give to the refugees. The top is an old piece of EPP hexagons. Have been very lazy and just "bagged" it without a border or binding. Plan to fmq it but think it will be difficult because it is very thick. Will post photo when done.

The secret to the fbrics going so well together is: the fabric was made with the larger flowers on each side of the smaller flowers on dark green. I just cut the fabric into 12" wide strips and put them back to back. A bit of a cheat but an easy idea.

I'll look forward to seeing your pram cover Sylyvia.

Liking the fabric, Eileen! Good result, especially when it it quick! Well done! hope your sale goes well at the end of the month.

How did you make your bibs … are they lined?

Best wishes

Thank you Reenie. The bibs were 8 printed on a panel. They have a light weight polyester wadding and then a cotton plain fabric on the back. half were turned through [bagged out?] and 4 had traditional bias binding added. For the ties I used 1 in strip folded in half and then opened and the raw edges folded into the middle, pressed and sewn in half so they end up as 1/4" strips. Eileen x

it was a fluke that I found them to be honest. A small shop in a neighbouring town was closing down and I just happened to be passing. I didn't even know this shop existed. All the years I didn't know it was there crying

I haven’t made very much for a while but I liked the look of these Christmas napkins and decidedly to give it a go!

Is that 6 napkins folded to create trees, Reenie, or a napkin with trees on it?

Hello Sylvia, what you are seeing are six napkins. When opened out they form a semi-circle. I got the idea using Donna Jordan’s YouTube video. (Tried to post the link but it didn’t work.). Just put in her name and scroll down till you see the Christmas Tree napkins.  You can put the cutlery in the folds.  Tempted to use them for cutlery and make other napkins which are not so fancy, to be used as proper napkins!
 

Best wishes

Reenie
