A Christmas Make & Fun Frogs







I've just scraped in with an April item for '1 Xmas Item A Month'... is this not a cute apron?! It's a panel I purchased after Christmas last year, for a whole $2 or something like that... a nice quick make... & I just l-o-v-e the little fat birds





Thanks Narelle for inspiring your elves to be making Christmas items throughout the year, as part of "1 Xmas Item A Month" x... And cheeky me, this is also a Sew It's Finished item for me too!


 *~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*
In making my brown-eyed hexy flowers, my plan is to stick with fabrics that don't require fussy-cutting... but sometimes I see a fabric I just really want to use...
I have a few fabrics I call my "Maria Fabrics", so-named because my friend Maria uses quirky fabrics to make her hexy flowers, & they always look great... so Maria, thank you for inspiring me to 'leap' outside my plan!
Karen is so generous to host the linky for One Flower Wednesday each week, why not pop over to see some other very pretty hexy flowers...

Aren't you clever to make something easy AND use it for two things! The apron is too cute! And I think I do see some "Maria influence" on your pretty fussy cut flower today. Love your background too.....looks almost like my periwinkle but not quite..... xoxoxo
