The good thing about ordering your own Christmas gifts online with your Christmas money is that they come in after Christmas is over. If your mail is like mine all the packages come in at once so it’s really like opening gifts on Christmas morning again. I think Canada Post saves up the packages in Edmonton and only delivers them to my town a couple of days a week so those days are extra happy mail days. Here is the remainder of my Heather Ross orders. I actually remembered to get photos while the sun was up today!
|I ordered these from Heather Ross’ Spoonflower shop. The two on the left are Mendocino and the purple on the right is the frog prince from Far Far Away. I ordered them to be printed on Kona but now I am wishing I had ordered on poplin. This is my first time ever ordering from Spoonflower. The ink does not go right through the fabric. I think it is like it is literally put through a printer. So I’m not sure if it holds up to washing and wouldn’t want to try to find out. I think I will use these for backings on mini quilts in the swaps that I’m in on Instagram. That said, I would order from Spoonflower again for sure. There’s loads of great stuff on there.
|A closer shot. This centre piece is the focal fabric of my mini quilt. This print is called “Underwater Sisters”.
|Before Christmas I won a collaborative giveaway on the Thread Riding Hood blog from Sherri of Thread Riding Hood and Daryl of Fabric Spark. I feel like I know these ladies just from interacting with them online and on Instagram even though I’ve never met them and they live in Toronto. I won a pattern kit and fabric to make four gift bags. I sewed this one up today for my husband’s birthday at the end of the month and it literally only took me 10 minutes.
|You can see the four different projects in Sherri’s pattern above. I highly recommend this pattern. It is very well written and beginner friendly. Plus it has cute little hint icons and tips throughout to make sewing these bags super easy. You can find the gift bag kit HERE. Thank you Sherri and Daryl! 🙂
