Welcome to the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day! I’m glad to participate since the last one allowed me to discover so many new blogs and reminded me that I should be commenting more on blogs that I read regularly, not just when there’s something up for grabs. So I’m glad to meet a lot of new readers and bloggers today!
I have a relatively new friend from Sweden with a crafty business who showed up at Thanksgiving dinner with a whole big bag of fabric scraps for me to play with. Since these were so appropriate to the season, I was excited to start playing with them right away and made these three Swedish Santa Christmas ornaments. They are stuffed with wool stuffing and backed with sage green wool felt, and the string is made out of hemp cord. The two larger ones have frayed edges because the Santas were first appliqued to striped linen before they were attached to the felt.
Here you can see a little bit of the back. They’re hanging here out in my holly tree so that we can pretend I’ve done some decorating already! Good thing the berries turn red in time to decorate themselves.
So here’s the deal for the giveaway. I’m giving away all three to a commenter that I’ll draw randomly from all who enter. Entries will stay open through midnight EST, Dec 6. This giveaway is open to US residents only, to make it more likely for me to get it shipped in time. Since I’ve been working on pillows and table runners for my shop lately, I’d love if you told me what color your living room and dining room is decorated with, or at least what color your couch and dishes are. Hopefully there are some of you that stick around and subscribe to my feed, too, to see the rest of my crafty projects and feel free to read my About Me page if it’s your first time here! Good luck
