Free Pattern for Christmas Giving - Week 3


This week I have another free pattern for you - 
the Persian Rose Cushion.

It measures 14 inches square and is very
quick to make:


 It has a Broderie Perse centre on the scalloped
appliqué, so is a great way to feature one of your pretty fabrics:



I hope you like it and enjoy making it.  You can download the pattern here. It will be available for one week and then will be replaced with the last design in our Free Patterns for Christmas Giving.

I attended four parties this week so lots of fun and very little project sewing.  The crochet hook worked overtime for a couple of weeks while I made some snowflake decorations.  They were just the perfect 'neighbour' gifts:

You can find the patterns here:

I whipped up some travel tissue cases.  I found the plain check/chevron ones were appreciated by the males who received them. The ladies liked the pretty ones!

They were super quick and easy to make:

I was debating how to wrap the parcels and went searching for something a bit different. This lovely site shares the pattern for gifts bags which I made from origami paper:  practicallyfunctional.com/paper-gift-bags-free-silhouette-download/

Christmas is coming fast!  I've bought the Turkey and the Ham,  thought about the Pudding, and started writing our Christmas letter. I'm dragging my feet getting the Tree out of storage. There aren't any children here yet, so there's no-one to goad me into action! If you haven't set up your nativity scene yet, here is an absolutely fabulous free printable:

The children would love helping you with this. 
While you're there, have a look at their Children's magazine - a subscription would make a wonderful Christmas gift that lasts the whole year.

Enjoy your week.
Regards
Val

Wow, you've been busy! I love the nativity scene and am passing that on to the moms I know. I may print one out for the top of my bookcase (it's only 4 ft. high), too. Thank you so much for the lovely cushion pattern. Your work is so beautiful!
