Saturday Sewin'

These will either be gifts or be sold, whichever comes first. Is that awful?
I love this print called 2D Yuletide by Alexander Henry. It is based on the 2D Zoo print which is so cute.  I love these critters all dressed up for Christmas (or whatever Winter holiday they choose to observe.)  I  got this fabric in three colorways, but have only cut the black print so far.  You know I have to pet it awhile before I chop it up.

 Tumbling Santas Applique Pillow-- I made the pillow top base with strips of the cute Santa print and red fabrics. This color combo is very popular and I still love it.

I fused these Santas to Steam-a-Seam and then cut them out. I ironed them onto the pillow top base and used zig zag stitch to applique them.  I decided to have the Santas sort of tumbling across the pillow and I see here that I mostly placed them upside down. Hope Santa's blood does not all rush to his head.
Some of these may be going with me to the Earlysville Fire Department Craft Fair in early December. That is if I can bear to part with them. 

Two of the pillows I showed yesterday have already been sold to a friend who is planning to gift them for Christmas.
