...Christmas. In my studio, that is!
Tissue cozies waiting for buttons.
I don't usually make things especially for Christmas, or any holiday for that matter. I tried it with pillows my first year but only sold a few and was stuck with them until the following year. They didn't sell then either and I said "never again."
But, this year I had a few requests from shop owners for holiday-themed tissue cozies, so I took the plunge. I bought six of the prettiest prints I could find (why are holiday prints so awful?) and made up four of each. Luckily I had a lot of red and green buttons and some pearl ones for the blue snowflake print.
It's hard to tell from the photo but the snowflakes are printed in silver.
While I was shopping for fabric I fell in love with this cute snowman print. Not my usual thing at all but there's something adorable about him. I have zippers in that darker blue color so I'll make a few zippered bags from this fabric.
My friend Jenny had a great idea for using the zippered bags and she bought a bunch of them from me earlier this fall. Put a gift card inside, wrap it up, and you've got a dual-purpose gift for the holidays. Sounds like a plan!
