The months between September and December are always so very busy for me… probably for you, too?
There are many events on my calendar…one of which is our annual Providence Christmas Market held at our church the weekend before Thanksgiving. This is a fund raiser that we hold each year for Providence Baptist College. It is always a big success and so much fun! I thought I’d share a few pics of some of the projects I worked on for the Craft Show…
The Snowmen bells (pictured on the left) were made from small terra cotta pots turned upside down and painted white and red. I added painted faces and a ribbon to the Mrs. Snowmen… I inserted a red ribbon with a gold bell through the hole in the pot to hang the bells on the Christmas tree. These Christmas ornaments completely sold out! Moms and kids, alike, enjoyed these fun creations.
My newest pattern (Designs by Lori Dickman©) is a Snowman Table Runner. In the photo shown on the right, the runner has been pieced, but not yet quilted. This new pattern will be for sale on my website soon. All of the Snowmen Table Runners sold out… I had hoped to have a few as hostess gifts for the Holidays, but they were all snatched up at the Craft Show!
Not only did I create Christmas and winter projects for the Craft Show, but I also made up some Fall table runners… I’ve included a photo below of one of my designs….
The table runner shown on the left is a fast and fun pattern to put together! It’s a great project for when you need a gift ready to go very quickly! I am working on preparing this pattern and it will be up on my website sometime soon also! (Probably after the Holidays have passed! 🙂
I made up this table runner in a variety of color waves… Christmas, Fall season, and modern color themes… Table runners always seem to be popular as gifts!
The Microwave Soup Bowl Cozies (pictured on the right) were yet another hit at the Craft Show… They sold out very quickly. The soup bowl cozies are made completely from cotton products… cotton thread cotton batting, cotton fabric. Everything must be cotton so that the cozies can go in the microwave. The little curved tabs on the corners of the cozies help to remove the bowl from the microwave without burning your fingers!
I will be creating a Tutorial on how to make these bowl cozies (you’ll find that under my “Tutorials” sub-tab under “Quilt & Sew” main tab on my site…again, after the Holidays! 🙂
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of the projects that I worked on this Fall, and I encourage you to try some of them yourself!
Have a very Merry & Blessed Christmas!
