Even though it's super hot outside and Christmas seems so far away, now is the time to get started on those Christmas projects! We have a bunch of samples hanging in the store right now from local pattern designer Jan Kornfeind. Her company is called Country Appliques. Jan says, "Every person making one of our patterns is really creating a future heirloom. It's important to me that their experience is an enjoyable one and that the outcome of their project is a work they are proud of." She does wonderful machine applique and her attention to detail is fabulous! Below are 2 from the Olde Santa Series.
This is #21 in the series, Santa With His List. The finished size is 20-3/4" x 26", so it just makes a cute little wall hanging! Santa checks his list of names, he'll bring gifts to all the good girls and boys on Christmas Eve!
Check out this awesome technique! She just used a double needle and it gave it a trapunto look. You should try it, it's so simple but it adds so much!
This is #19 in the series, Santa's Best Friend. The finished size is 23-1/2" x 26". Santa welcomes Christmas with a gift for all creatures great and small!
Here is a bit of a closer look, the snowflakes are buttons that she added. Shes uses them in a lot of her patterns, they are so cute!
