A friend of mine comes from a quilting family. Every year, Santa tucks them in with their own special Christmas quilt so they wake up under it Christmas morning. They cuddle with it all day and then Christmas night, Santa takes it back to the North Pole.
Our family has decided that is a lot of work for one night so in our house, we asked the Elf on the Shelf to bring the quilt – and take it back to the North Pole on Christmas night!
Here are just a few of the patterns that are in the top 100 that would be perfect choices:
This pattern does not include the instructions for a quilt – but they are too darn cute to miss!
Why not start a new family tradition. If you get started now, they will be done just in time…..
These Holly Jolly Gnomes designed by The Whole Country Caboodle are simply adorable! The pattern features four different gnomes: Reindeer Gnome, Snowflake Gnome, Santa Gnome, and Papa Gnome. With names like that, they could move right in with the Smurfs and feel right at home!
The booklet includes instructions for a mug rug, pillow, pillow wrap, and canister wrap. Many feature homespun towels as a base.
These fellows also come in laser cut kits which Include precut fused applique & finished drawing for assembling applique.
I can already see these as the basis of gifts for next year. Why not start a holiday club in January? Feature projects like this that make great gifts for everyone on your list – including the pets! Can’t you just picture a canister filled with cat or dog treats wrapped with a reindeer gnome? Decorated kitchen towels for hostess gifts? Mug rugs for the folks at work? Wouldn’t it be nice to have an assortment of gifts on hand next year?
These items are due to arrive the end of December so they would be a great way to kick off a new program! And don’t forget to check out Leann’s fabric with Henry Glass. Her basic lines are great wardrobe choices for these guys!
What child isn’t fascinated by dragons? And these darlings by The Whole Country Caboodle will make everyone smile!
Don’t you love the way many of the dragons just can’t be contained in their 10″ blocks. Can’t you picture these as wall art as well as a quilt? The kits include laser cut pieces and patterns for placement. They are due to arrive next month so order them now.
A trip to the zoo has never been more fun with these whimsical animals from The Whole Country Caboodle. The pattern includes the pre-cut, pre-fused fabrics.
Children of ALL ages will smile! Make one block and add borders for a quilt. Center another design on the side of a diaper bag. Frame one above the changing table. Make a pillow for the rocker out of another. The nursery is done! These are not due to arrive until September but you have nine months to plan for a baby so I wanted you to know these will be available before the due date!
