Are we all getting into the Christmas spirit yet? I am enjoying seeing lots of Christmas crafts popping up on my Instagram feed, and getting a plan of action ready for my Christmas makes. Those of you following me on Instagram would have seen me sewing along to the Lori Holt Cozy Christmas QAL. I also have an advent calendar in planning stages - stay tuned... In the mean time, here's a Christmas cushion that I made that is featured in this month's issue of Love Patchwork & Quilting!
This issue is the magazine's annual 'festive' issue which is out in the UK and digital newsstands now (coming to US stores in a few weeks' time).
The candy canes on my cushion are interfaced applique (which can be hand or machine sewn onto the background), finished off with a velvet bow. The red pompoms around the perimeter add a cute festive touch!
And here's the picture of my cushion as featured in the magazine (photo credit: Love Patchwork & Quilting). I love love love the way they have styled it!
Thanks for visiting, and happy Christmas crafting! Only 73 days to go!
