20 Saturdays left until what?
Until Christmas of course!
Time to start thinking about the holidays
and get those projects started!
I ordered this darling table topper pattern
from the Fat Quarter Shop
and was hoping to use Phenomenal Fall by Moda
but apparently when USPS said my fabric
was "out for delivery" on Friday...
they were only kidding.
Seems that no one really knows
where my package is at the moment.
I didn't want to wait
so I decided to bust out some of the random
Christmas charms I received last year when I took part
in a Christmas charm swap.
I grabbed 15 charms that looked good together
and cut them into 2 1/2" squares.
You can also use those darling little
"mini" charm packs available now on etsy and ebay.
This pattern takes 60 squares.
I'm glad I made this one today as a trial run,
because the pattern doesn't specify what size binding
to use and I used 2 1/2".
I'll try 2" on the next one.
Because my binding was a bit wide,
the scallops don't show as well as I'd like.
It was FTS (fun to sew) until I got to
the binding of the little scallops.
Not so much fun as it turns out.
Pretty darn cute though when it's done right.
You can see that my binding is sadly lacking.......
I'm not throwing in the towel just yet.
I have 60 more squares cut out and ready
for round 2 of my little scallop binding adventure.
Wish me luck!
