Cutting + sticking + sewing + baking. My creative life.

Christmas Makes 2012

So this is a few shots of the things I made for Christmas 2012…….

Christmas stocking for our neighbours.
Christmas cupcakes – recipe from The Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days
Bookmark for my Mum
Gingerbread cupcakes – recipe also from The Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days.  It’s a good book for seasonal ideas!
Old-fashioned chocolate cake (with snowflake sprinkles!) – recipe from Feast by Nigella Lawson
Christmas stocking for my best friend (and I bought the card from my local farmer’s market).
Blondies – recipe from The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook
I made a santa sack for a family I am good friends with.

I used a panel of lobsters which I had screenprinted for the front.

For the back I used some gorgeous Christmas fabric  one of my quilt group friends gave me in a disappearing 9-patch pattern.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of the finished sack.  D’oh ho ho!
I made these tree ornaments as party favours for my quilt group and book group Christmas parties.

The pattern is from Kasja Wikman’s book Scandinavian Stitches.

It’s called Scandinavian houses.

I made the hangers from string.

I gave the quillters one of these badges each.

They looked pretty packaged up with a candy cane.Hope your Christmas was fun. Happy new year!Love Melanie x
