The Christmas crafting has begun in earnest this holiday weekend. It started with this potholder which used the applique technique described in Natural Patchwork.
I then moved on to matching smock / pinafore dresses that I made out of a fat eights package of Happy Mochi Yum Yum I was fortunate to win from Oh, Fransson. The small pieces meant that the dresses ended up completely tutti-frutti, but I think that compliments the fabric quite nicely. The pattern for these was taken from One Yard Wonders. I’ve sewn several projects from this book and was particularly happy with the details of this pattern (the bodice is lined, most seams are hidden, etc).
