Bon-bon sewing

This last few days, I have been stitching up a storm! I have just received these Hatched & Patched patterns for my online store and could not resist making one to go with a gift (ok, ok I have made 3 so far..... I can hear you laughing Roseanne - she says I ALWAYS make 3 of everything!!). These are SO quick and easy to make so I could not resist...... I bought some little Candy Canes to fill them up:


I decided to make one in green which turned out quite well..... I used 2 strands of thread for this one and didn't put the french knots in the little stars to see what it would look like and I quite like it! This green one I am going to put with my work Secret Santa gift:

Here are the 3 all together....... I have another couple traced out LOL


Hmmmmm..... I must get some ribbon for the ties - they look a bit 'daggy' with just my thread showing!
If you are interested in this pattern, have a look here - don't forget FREE postage on all my patterns!

I am keeping up to date with my December Daily Journal, but have to add some pics. Once I have some done I will share my progress......
Enjoy the rest of your day
