This is another flat Christmas ornament similar to the Circle Ornament. The thing that makes this more challenging is working with bias edges, so if it’s your first project, I recommend the circle. However, if you’re careful not to stretch the fabric or pull stitches too tight, this project will not be difficult.
This bookmark is a small project with three different techniques, so it’s a great way to try something new without a big commitment. You use the same materials as the other Christmas Countdown projects – handkerchief linen and Perle cotton.
Coasters are quick and easy projects. They make great gifts, maybe with a mug and some special hot chocolate mix, or you could make a whole set for yourself.
This book cover can be customized to whatever size notebook you have. It would make a great gift or you could use it for your holiday record-keeping.
The second pojagi project is a flat circle ornament. For this you will need: light cardboard (like a cereal or cracker box), two small pieces of batting, two 2-1/2″ x 4″ pieces of fabric colour 1, two 2-1/2″ x 2 pieces of fabric colour 2, two 2″ x 2″ pieces of fabric colour 3, Perle cotton size 8.
The first project in the Christmas countdown is easier than it looks. There is only one shape and only one type of seam. You need two different colours of handkerchief linen fabric, size 8 Perle cotton in a contrasting colour, and a bit of stuffing.
My kids named this project because they said it looks like a samosa. You can how multicultural Canada is when I’m using European materials to make to make a Korean-style project and it’s named for Indian food.
