We hope you enjoyed a little mid-summer Christmas cheer this week. In case you missed it, you can go back and meet some of the contributors to Fa La La La Felt and save the free projects from the book. Comment in any of the posts from earlier this week for a chance to win a copy of the book or a big bundle of felt! We’ll announce the winners Monday.

While you’ve been planning your ornaments, we’ve been unpacking boxes. Look at what’s arrived!

New Patterns

A plethora of new patterns–both paper and pdf–from Patterns by Figgy’s, Sew LiberatedScientific Seamstress, Sweet Pea Totes, Keykalou, The Handmade Dress and Sew Spoiled.

We’re going to give away a yard of fabric to 4 people and a pattern of choice to 2 people.  We just finished a week of Christmas in July, and we’re already planning November’s Handmade Holidays series.  Tell us the truth–when do you really start planning for the holidays?  Also, do you buy holiday-themed fabric?  We want to know!  We’ll randomly select the 6 winners on Monday (plus the 5 book winners and 1 felt winner!)  Have a great weekend.
