Elf Stocking Free Pattern Link

Elf Christmas Stocking

This Elf Christmas Stocking I made for Libertys of London
back in 2012, blog post here

I am being asked for a pattern they can down load, better than what I originally attached :)

Click HERE into this link and it is a drop box, 
so you can print off and blow up on a printer to A3.

Happy Sewing Kx

Petal & Plume by Bari J.

Petal & Plume Fuchsiad Finch colourway
by Bari J. For Art Gallery Fabrics

Dedicated to a childhood memory of Bari’s grandparents, Petal & Plume centers on a majestic and colorful symbol. Painterly strokes create an otherworldly palette of pale violet, iris blue, and twilight tones. Designs seem to leap out from the darkness to illustrate the loving, and graceful world created around the peacock. .

This also comes in another 10 fabrics called Tealed Aster

Deep Winterwoven Recollection

Deep Winterwoven Recollection 
by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery 

A Homage to the centuries and evolution of textile craftwork, Recollection hints to artisanal techniques like lacework, embroidery, and tapestry. Embellished with worldly heritage, these designs create variegated textures in sheer charcoal, natural indigo and soft reds with woven highlights of dusty pastels.

This also comes in Mist Moderknittie Recollection
with more grey and aqua.
But I'm loving the Mustard, Navy & Deep Coral in this bundle.

Due in the UK December - can be pre ordered here
