Santa Sacks

Whilst on summer holidays from University, text book piles have been replaced with fabric and sewing tools. January 2010 I came across some Santa panels in a post-Christmas sale and bought loads of the stuff with great intentions. However, I was back on campus by the end of January and sadly, the sewing was put away for several monthes. I came accross a bag of purchases a few weeks ago, turns out that I had also bought other treasures that same day, including fabric to make my daughters kindergarten chair-bag. Sorry sweet girl, perhaps Mumma will make it for you ready for 1st class in 2011?
A few metres of red fabric as well, should get 3 good sized sacks out of this lot.
I can't believe how much easier it is to cut when you have a few little tools!
My confidence grows with each panel, as I have been day dreaming about really getting into quilting
and my sewing is suprisingly neat and straight!
Viola! Bigger than I had anticipated, however, Santa managed to stuff a few toys AND a boogie board into each!
I am sewing again, and I am happy. Most of all, I love that my three little ones have their very own Santa sack each, lovingly created by their Mumma's hands. I love you my little chickens, Merry Christmas!
