Getting My Christmas Sew On!

With Christmas being just over a month away (SQUEAL!) - I have taken some time out this week to start on my personal Chrissy sewing projects. This includes a bunting, my children's Christmas Outfits and of course teacher's gifts.





Deciding what to make for the beautiful teachers who spend so much time nurturing. teaching and inspiring little people is a difficult choice.

So where better to look for ideas than my favourite sewing E-Zine One Thimble. Issue 5 was released recently and I have to say this is the best value issue yet! Jam packed with so many patterns, articles and amazing discounts! I do love a bargain!
(You will find an exclusive discount on my patterns in this issue also)

Well I decided on the super cute pattern by FlossStyle - The "Sneak Peak Sweet Treat Stocking" as my first teachers gift.

This was such a great pattern! With very clear instructions it was a quick sew with awesome results. I made this little cutie in under an hour.....the hardest part was choosing the fabrics.



I went with purple gingerbread men as my daughters teacher loves bright colours so I thought this was a cute choice.

The clear window makes this little stocking extra special, I love that you can see what is inside. The instructions made sewing with vinyl super easy so don't be afraid to try it.





Once finished, fill this cute stocking up with treats and you have the sweetest Teachers gift. I plan to make more of these in time for Christmas.

One Christmas gift finished.......lots more to go. :)

Happy Sewing
