Winter Wonderland is a holiday collection inspired by memories of long winter nights in the Northern Hemisphere, childhood memories of wishing for a white Christmas and enjoying the colours and sparkle found at Christmas time.

Now in Stores | Christmas Past by Lori Rudolph
Christmas Past brings together memories of Christmas past. It’s an homage to my paternal Grandmother who loved Christmas. She displayed her vintage glass ornaments on a rather kitschy tree and decorated her home with her own unique flair. It’s because of her that I fell in love with Christmas baubles and now collect (and draw) vintage ones myself.

This free project is suitable for any occasion, but we wanted to get festive with Tinsel by Clairice Gifford. An easy and fashionable Bottle Gift Bag would be perfect for a house warming, birthday or anniversary! It’s quickly becoming one of our personal go-to projects.

Make it Sew | Harness Boot Christmas Stocking
Make it Sew | Stitched Valentines
This is a simple idea that’s full of possibilities. They could be made for any holiday or occasion. What’s really wonderful though is that it’s perfect for scraps and your little sewists. The directions are vague which is nice because it leaves room for interpretation. We had 4″ envelopes so we worked backwards from there.
Mo Willems’ Knuffle Bunny was a great fabric to use for young ones since it combines a favorite character and hearts!
1. We printed out some sayings for a computer onto a stiff paper stock. This isn’t necessary, since you can always handwrite your Valentine’s Day wishes. As for size, we made the paper portion smaller so we could use fabric as a frame. So in this case, the finished size is for a 4″ envelope and the paper squares are about 3″ leaving 1″ in fabric border.
2. We cut fabric scraps roughly at about 5″ squares – enough so we didn’t have to line things up too strictly before sewing. Layering fabrics wrong sides together and placed the paper on top. We did not pin things because we didn’t want to leave a mark in the paper, but you could use spray glues if thought it would help for littler hands.
* We took the extra step in adding a layer of white fabric between the prints so they wouldn’t show though.
3. Using any stitch you like and sewing with the paper facing up, stitch around the edge of the paper. Trim loose ends.
4. Finally, trim the fabrics to the desired size with pinking shears.
5. For a finishing touch, we added fabric “stamps”.
Dem Bones | Seasonal Setting for a Foyer
Quilter and teacher, Charles Johns’ interpretation for a seasonal makeover in Dem Bones really impresses us!
Firstly, he did this duo of pennant projects, which can really translate for any season, but work so nicely with the scale of Dem Bones. It’s subtle and easy to live with paired with a variety of gourd-colored solids.

Dem Bones | Seasonal Table Runner
Quilter and teacher Charles Johns created this quilt-as-you-go table runner. This somewhat improvised project is great a great scrap-buster, too. Here’s a great tutorial on this style of quilting for this simple project if you’re looking for a starting point on making one for yourself!
