I've had another industrious week of Christmas present making which has really gotten me in to the festive mood......that and the fact that Christmas has thrown up on all the shops around the island and you can't escape it wherever you go! This has definitely effected my mood whilst fabric browsing this week, I love the idea of wearing a Christmas themed dress at Christmas (I did it last year and plan on doing the same this year) so this type of fabric browsing was inevitable. and heres what I've added to my wish list.
|Mini Ornaments / Holly Leaves|
Winter Essentials / Snowflakes
I also looked for some more traditional prints and colours......
|Christmas Star / Metallic Cardinals / Winter Berries|
Winterberry Botanical Green
.......all of these would make lovely Christmas dresses. I particularly like the holly berry garlands on the dark green background, just think of all the fun you could have with different fabric placements.... I'm thinking of a chevroned bodice and horizontal striped skirt.
To me Christmas isn't Christmas without a poinsettia in the house (no idea where that's come from so I looked it up, here if you're interested.....thank you Joel Roberts P!) so I had to include this one.....
Silver Holly / My True Love Gave To Me Holly / Seasons Greetings Holly
......along with these holly and mistletoe fabrics. I love all the metallic accents in the two holly fabrics which is very appropriate at Christmas plus it appeals to the magpie in me.....mmmmm shiny, excites!
Lastly I found these.....
|Snowflake Blur / Holiday Glitter|
Holiday Yule Critters
