Happy Holidays!

I managed to get a few goodies sewn and ready for gift giving!
I made this for my grand daughter.  It measures about 50" x 60"
I used a minky throw for the backing (no need for batting that way) it's very cuddly!

Last year I made aprons for eveyone so this year I made potholders. 
I just love the graphix on these coffee fabrics!
So much fun to work with!  
And here's Maxine with her xmas wisdom!
I thought the Blah Humbug was appropriate backing for Maxine! 
What's your favorite thing to sew for stocking stuffers? 
I think mine is these kind of potholders,  the fabric is fun to play/ sew with and they are quick and easy and who doesn't need some new potholder?!
I hope you all have a wonderful Holidays Surounded by all your favorite people!
Cheers, Claire W.


  1. Those potholders are adorable, Claire! what a clever use of humerous Christmas fabric and panels.

  2. ps did you know you can use your old grody potholders for the interior of the new ones? Just wash them up first!

    pps. this year I made large-size coasters, aka "mug rugs".

  3. What a sweet quilt for your granddaughter! Using minky for the back is a wonderful idea!
