Handmade Christmas - part 1

 2010 is the year of the pillowcase, seriously!
The turtle pillowcase is for Turtle who just happens to love green. This pillowcase will compliment the jigsawpuzzle quilt I'm making for his bed in which the turtle fabric will feature prominently  :)
The orange/red pillowcase is for a very colourful niece
The dr Seuss pillowcases I made just for fun, and I don't know where they'll be going yet.

These tube pillowcases are shockingly easy to make. I learned how from watching this tutorial.
Gotta love YouTube!
 Here's a set of a small quilted reversible tablerunner/mat and coasters. Nothing fancy and very quick to make!
 There's a scripture tote for a special little Possum with extra special sparkly embellishments which I have still to sew on when said little girl is in bed asleep.
Some wall art to go with a quilt that is still in production, but that will look something like this:
The pattern is called "Dandelion Windows" and was designed by the very clever Kate Conklin.


  1. LOVE the dandelion windows, sausage pillows and home made Christmas idea. Steve's busy in the garage doing some home made pressies and I don't have any thoughts yet!

  2. I agree with Suzi, so many projects happening - love the canvases to go with the quilt, wish you were my mum!
