Today is the day you can find my tutorial for The 12 Weeks of Christmas over at Free Spirit’s blog. For my project, I chose an easy fused applique design that you can use on any number of things. Mine is on a tea towel and makes a perfect hostess gift. But think of the possibilities–quilt blocks, pillows covers, tote bags, etc. Use your favorite designer fabric and personalize it to suit your style. You don’t even have to do the handwork, just let your zig zag stitch take care of all the edges. Super easy, incredibly fast.
So…what are you waiting for? Head over to Free Spirit for the templates and the how to. But before you leave, be sure you enter the giveaway here.
