Christmas Special

There are Christmas decorations in the shops already!!!
But there's plenty of time to stitch up a frenzy!!!
I have lots of ideas to help you on your way.
*Make a "Teddy Bear Christmas Stocking" and fill it with goodies.
*Embroider the recipient's name on the Christmas stocking.
*Make a Christmas wall hanging for a treasured friend.
*Make up a gift basket - patterns, threads, sewing bits & pieces, fat quarters, chocolates and a pretty mug.
*We have lots of Teddlywinks patterns that can be made up for children.
*Make a mini-quilt for a child (or an adult!) and wrap it around a teddy bear.
*Make the little sleeping bag pattern (#7203) in Christmas fabrics, and pop a teddy into it.
*Applique "Santa's Little Helper" (#4602) onto a t-shirt or apron.
*Applique any favourite Teddlywinks design onto a t-shirt or apron!
*Applique the bears from "The Boys are Back in Town" (#5107) or "Girls' Night Out" (#5104) onto children's clothing, eg. t-shirts, overalls, jackets.
*Make a library bag or art smock, or decorate a chair bag using your child's favourite Teddlywinks design.
And remember to add a personalised message on a quilt label, either for the recipient, or for yourself!
Holly Bearies (#4603) has some lovely "Christmassy" stitchery ideas, and Teddlywinks Quilt Labels (#1206) is a little booklet of quilt label designs.
Now is the time to get started on "A Teddy Bear Christmas" (#4607), either as a BOM for next year, or as a kit for this Christmas! It would look stunning displayed near your dining table or in an entrance hall.

SPECIAL OFFER
Purchase any two Teddlywinks patterns and receive a free "Snoozy" pattern.
This offer ends October 31st 2008.
I have stitched bells on mine and hang it on the door
each year - it makes a lovely jingling sound as people pass
through. Go to www.teddlywinks.com.au for ordering details.
Cheers!
