Festive Sewing

It has been busy here at Sewmiriam behind the scenes. My attempts to find time to post have failed miserably of late, so finally here at last is a bit of festive cheer  as we approach the holiday season at full speed! Every year this happens to me. I make every attempt to be organised and prepared, but somewhere along the line I get caught up with life, and suddenly POW! It is that time of year again and I am running around like a headless chicken. When will I ever learn!

I have managed to squeeze in some gift sewing for some special people who make for others selflessly all year long. They give generously, so I though now is the time to make something for them.
 I used the Sewmiriam Zara Zip Top Bag Pattern to make these bags in festive colour ways, and added jingle bells for a bit of extra pizzaz!

Next up I did an easy modification of my Sewmiriam Handy Zip Top Bag Pattern 

and made an iPad cover

and then some pencil cases for my three wonderful children 

 In case you were wondering,  I have just put out some of my patterns commercially. It feels surreal. They are appearing in quilt and sewing shops in Australia now and I am beyond delighted! Ask your local shop to order them through Lynne Wilson of HQW Distributors . They are currently in stock and for sale at Cottage Quiltworks in Warriewood.

I have lots of workshops coming up in 2018 already at Quiltsmith,  Thorpe and Co, and at Patchwork Plus at Miranda. I will be around and about at Cottage Quiltworks as well, so great things are happening in 2018. I will keep you posted.

 Wishing you and your families a healthy and safe Festive season, and of course happy sewing!

Love Miriamx
