Christmas Sewing

 It is that time of year to start focusing on Christmas sewing for my family and Etsy shop.  I love making original stockings using English paper piecing, appliqué, and both hand and machine quilting.

Patriotic Sewing - American Flag Mini Quilt

I spent some time on Flag Day sewing this cute Stars and Stripes mini quilt using a pattern by Camille Roskelly of Thimbleblossoms.  It seemed appropriate to be sewing with red, white and blue.  I included some of my favorites from Moda and Riley Blake in this mini quilt.

Sock Monkey Drawstring Bag

 I finished this Sock Monkey themed drawstring bag over the weekend.  Wouldn't it be cute holding a small boy's special birthday gift?  He could also use it to store his toys and gadgets after the party is over.  I have a couple for sale now in my Etsy shop and they come with a matching personalized gift tag.
