When I was making last years yuletide lad quilt I decided that I should make it sort of a tradition, to make a new crafty project every Christmas. Isn’t it much more fun to have home made decorations. So when people ask ‘were did you get that’ I can say oh I made it and there is no other just like it in the world 🙂
This year it started with Sewhooked’s ‘Sweet Sue Tops The Tree’ pattern. I made it and then went ‘what to do with it now it’s made?’. After several days of thinking and at least a week of planing I came up with this:
It doesn’t have a name yet, but I’m open to suggestions.
But the interesting ting is what it is for. You see the little blue parts are actually pockets to hold my Christmas cards (once they start to arrive).
I don’t know about others but in my family we save all the Christmas card we get until Christmas eve. And after dinner we all sit down in our living room and read our Christmas cards. But it is nice to have a pretty place to store them all until they are opened 🙂
So this was my 2011 Christmas project. I’ll be back tomorrow with a new yuletide lad
until then happy crafting y’all
