Welcome to my day of the Sew Seasonal Blog Hop!
You might see something that will get your Christmas
sewing off to a good start!
I gave you a little sneak peek of what I was making a
few days ago...
It is a paper pieced block...
I trace my block onto drawing paper that is
And sew through the paper...
It does tear away very easily at the end!
I also cut my fabrics to the rough size required before
Now you can tell what I made, can't you?
I was having so much fun, I made....
not one, but two more!.....
In three different sizes!
I made these into a pillowcase!
Do you want to know why?
When I was growing up in the sixties, we didn't have
|A Santa Sack!|
We hung a pillowcase from the end of our beds and
that's where Father Christmas left our presents!
It was known as a Santa Sack!
Does that seem weird?
Did anyone else do this?
I'd love to know your thoughts!
