Are you running out of time to make those Christmas presents?

Well I did an internet search and found some great ideas for making last minute, almost “no – sew”,  hand made gifts, which I thought that I would share with you here:

If you just can’t resist getting the sewing machine out, here is a great tutorial for making a Poinsettia flower using organza.

It is perfect for use as a table decoration, or a pretty brooch, and would look fantastic stitched in one of the Aurifil threads …. Cotton Mako’ would give a gentle sheen to the edge and Aurilux or Brillo would sparkle with light.

And if you still have some free time, why not whip up some lavender closet hangers as last minute Christmas favours to hang on the tree.

Enjoy!

Wishing you a happy Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.
We hope you manage to finish all those ufos – and perhaps start planning,
and maybe sewing, some new quilts in 2012.

Best wishes from Jenny and all the staff of Always Quilting.

Watch for more of our textile ideas, and store happenings, in 2012.
