12 Days Of Christmas In July


Welcome to my turn on the 

12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop 2016

The hop has been organised by Sarah Craig @Confessions Of A Fabric Addict and involves 25 bloggers each sharing Christmas gift tutorials over 12 days.  Today is Day 2 and I'm sharing my How To Make Selvedge & Fabric Christmas Cards tute with you.

Here are samples of the cards you can make using my technique.




Quick, easy, a great way to use scrap fabric, get crafty and be original.  If you'd like to find out how to make them you can click through to my tutorial here.


Throughout the blog hop our host, Sarah, will be leading a daily Christmas quilt top quilt along.  She promises that with just one hour's sewing a day for the 12 days you can make this festive quilt top that she's designed.  If you'd like to join in making the quilt top, here's the link to the first daily post to make the top - Day 1.


Also posting today is Yanicka @Finding Myself As An Artist and she's sharing a stunning red and white quilt she's made using a knitting pattern as both her inspiration and quilt pattern.

I've created a Pinterest board for all the tutes from the Blog Hop - you can follow it here.

  21. I just came upon your blog Chris, following you now, and what beautiful Christmas tree cards. I love that idea and will definitely give it a try. I must tell you, when I first logged onto your blog, I had to look twice. You and I look similar, of course you are younger than I am, but the resemblance is striking. Perhaps once I post this, my pic with my family at a picnic table will come up and perhaps you can see it there. If not, I'll have to send you a few pics. Thank you for your tutorial.
