Christmas Clips

Preparation is almost complete for all of the Christmas fairs now so I thought I'd share a couple of pictures of more things I have been making using my big shot!  I bought circle and oval dies thinking that they could be quite versatile and have created these little lovelies!

Christmas Clips were a good favourite last year so I'm hoping for the same this year too! 

Soon to come are the last couple of machine feet tutorials including the 1/4" seam foot, roll on topstitching because this foot makes it super neat!

Happy Sewing

Post Pals Crafty Links

I promised Post Pals that I would work through a list they had given on their facebook page of Crafty links for things to make for children.  Post Pals is a charity which helps children with complex/life limiting or terminal illnesses.  They have a list of all of the children and their siblings with details about their likes/dislikes and you can pick a child to write to or send a little gift to cheer them up.  It's an amazing charity and I really love to send my post so for anyone reading who hasn't come from their facebook page, please have a look at their site and if you have a spare 5 minutes and a stamp you could put a smile on a little ones face, it's priceless.

Here are the links that I've found that may be of interest.  I'll keep posting any blog ones that I get also and feel free to add any you have in the comments.  It ideally needs to be something that can easily be posted.

Hello Kitty

I have been having more fun with the Sizzix Big Shot and have made some lovely little Hello Kitty bags which are sure to be a hit!


I'm loving the penguin and gingerbread man dies too, great for little cute Christmas projects.


Just a short post for now as I had a fair Saturday night so I'm busily making up personalised stocking orders and, funnily enough some of the vests as above which were very popular!

Happy Sewing
