Merry & Bright

Time to decorate the tree, light the candles, sip cocoa.

Time to make merry!

I sneak out to the studio in the middle of the night and turn it into a Christmas workshop.

My Winter Wonderland snowflake dies are perfect for making everything feel festive.

Cut lots of them and stitch together into garlands, add a sprinkle of mica glitter and they glow bright with twinkle lights!

I took red and white felt and some quilt batting left over from another project and put them together with some snowflakes I cut from the steel rule snowflake die

Just cut a rectangle from red felt and some thin pieces of white to use as accents. 
Stitch together wrong sides facing one another- we're not even going to turn this inside out!

I used half a snowflake to fancy up each corner...

Stuff with whatever you happen to have on hand.

Now stitch it up.

Even for a completely inept seamstress like me, you'll end up with a darling little pillow in less than an hour!

Time to curl up with a good book or make another for a friend!
