Christmas is coming...

...I know, I know, the tile of my post is slightly alarming
but I have been filling my Etsy shelves with lovely Christmas-y things
and I wanted to show you

First up...advent calendars

The advent calendar above is made using Tilda fabrics
mostly from the 'Christmas house' range
I have fallen madly for these beautiful prints and have used them lots

Large flag bunting

Christmas cake bunting

Teeny tiny bunting perfect for decorating the tree

more teeny tiny...


can you tell I like the tree bunting??

Merry Christmoose bunting 

(yes spellchecker, I know that's wrong)

Let it snow! bunting

and of course my little friend Percy Pecker
I have also been working on some little friends for Percy
They will be looking forward to meeting you all soon
(when they have been made that is)

Gosh what a lot of photos
hope I didn't bore you
Righty-ho back to the sewing machine
well little birdies don't make themselves, you know

Happy Thursday to you
more soon

  5. Wow that's an impressive amount of sewing you've been upto! I've hardly made any Christmassy things so far. Did you make the moose face yourself and sew it on? I'm rather in awe!

  6. Ahhh thanks everyone x

    Hi Nicole... thank you, i make a paper template with a quickutz die cutter and then use the template to hand cut the fabric, i then stitch this onto the flag.

    love jooles x

  7. Oh wow! You are the Queen of Bunting - they are all just so gorgeous! Beautifully made, and oh-so-many delightful fabrics!

  10. Oh my gosh Jooles, just when I thought I had as much of your bunting as I could get you post the tiny tree bunting! Wheeee! Oh me oh my I might have to get a few lots of that for our tree this year, then maybe I'll say enough's enough? (no doubt you'll come up with another gorgeous creation that will get me hooked!) -cx
