My favorite holidays are 4th of July, Halloween, and Christmas (who doesn’t love Christmas?), and some of my favorite projects reflect these holidays. I have a 4th of July Table Runner that I almost completed in time this year, but my sewing machine broke in the middle of quilting it, so I will have to finish it in a few weeks. At least it will be ready next year!
I just finished a Halloween Penny Rug that I started last year, and am excited to show it off here:
It is all stitched by hand with scraps of wool. The pattern is by Sharon Stewart of Liberty Rose (check out her blog!)
I made this adorable Snowman Pillow from another Liberty Rose Pattern:
It is all hand-stitched in wool. I added black piping to the edge of the pillow which really makes the snowman pop! Also, I ironed fusible fleece onto the front and back of the pillow faces before I stitched them together. This makes a more durable pillow that stands up nicely so you can see the snowman.
