One last Christmas present post for you all before I wrap up the 2011 holiday season. I've seen this style of patchwork before and have wondered how to do it. I was therefore super excited to see Janet Somerset's guest post and tutorial for these cards on Sew Happy Geek. I originally thought I'd make one of these into an ornament for my mom, but then decided on a little mug rug so she could have it out all year. I followed the instructions on the tutorial exactly and it worked out perfectly!
I tried really hard to make it using calm non-bright colors, and I think it turned out well. My mom really liked it as well.
Here it is in progress and then finished.
Are you guys about wrapped up with Christmas/Holidays 2011?
