Christmas Present Sewing

Thought I would get a jump on making a few Christmas presents this year, but the time is approaching fast and I have only made three items. This one is about A4 size and will be titled, Obstacle Course For Fish. Not very inspiring, I know, but only had 30 secs to think of it.

I used fusible web to attach the pieces – no overlapping required, hence no turned under seams – then put fine white tulle over the top and now I will jazz it up with free-machine embroidery.  Here’s hoping I don’t overdo it (my usual style).

Stay tuned for the next stage.

  1. i like the fishies, specially the one swimming right through the leaf.

    I think you should be fine – I hand applique xmas presies for my family every year, don’t start til dec 1st and always finish with time to spare. Of course i do spend december working as mrs christmas, so i take mine to work with me, and if anyone asks I tell the truth – I’m helping santa make the presents…
