Sewing Christmas


Welcome to our ninth installment of "Sewing Christmas".  By now, for everyone who has been following along, you should have a nice little stash of gifts.  Doesn't it feel good to head in to the Christmas season with some gifts already prepared?


This oven mitt and kitchen towel may just end up in my stocking this year.  The colors match my kitchen perfectly.  For the towel I drew the snowman, freehand, using the fabric as my guide and embroidered it with a running stitch.


Tuck the towel inside with a pretty spatula, add some festive Christmas finery and I think you have one great teacher or hostess gift.  No wrapping required.  To share your Christmas gift ideas, please use the link below.  Blessings!

  3. I love the oven mitt! I wonder how it would work as a cell phone holder for my purse or a reading glasses case (all resized a little to fit)? Hmmm....just "thinking out loud".
