Finishing up the last day of 2018

It’s the last day of the year!  Anything I didn’t get done will just have to wait.

I finished the year with some Christmas crafting.  I am using some of the Christmas fabric I got for free from the closing of my neighborhood thrift store a few years back.

I made a wall hanging from this Santa panel.  I got the idea to add fiberfill as I machine quilted, to pad out parts of Santa’s body.

That turned out to be not the best idea because the quilt wouldn’t hang straight.  The bells at the bottom were not enough to weigh it down.  I should probably put in a bottom sleeve with a dowel, that might just do the trick.  Maybe next year.

I used two different fabrics for the binding. So pretty!

I ended up using a hanger with clips to display the wall quilt.

I may have messed up on a simple project, but, hey, it’s still Santa, and seven dalmatian puppies!  Can you spot them all?

I also went old school, and made some decorations with just paper and scissors.  Snowflakes! The fun part is unfolding them. I ironed the snowflakes, and put some on a string for display.

Wishing you many happy hours making, creating, and crafting in the New Year, 2019!

    Padding out Santa is a genius idea. Happy New Year, Lisa! You got a blog post up, and I didn’t even get to do that. Oh well.

    Happy New Year Samina! Whatcha sewing? We shall see!
    I already had the photos uploaded, just had to sit down and write a few paragraphs. Well, I thought padding Santa was a good idea until I saw how distorted it made the hanging. Need to try a bottom dowel.

    That’s very attractive Santa! I hope the dowel at the bottom is a solution so you can feel proud of him. And I haven’t made those paper snowflakes in years! Brings back nice memories.
