Vintage Baubles for Sew Hip

The latest issue of Sew Hip came out on Friday (issue #23) and it includes a project designed by me - felt ornaments inspired by vintage glass baubles. They even made the front cover:

It's always exciting seeing something I've made in print (in a real magazine! right there in the newsagent! eek!), and I'm thrilled by the thought that people will be making their own vintage felt baubles and adding them to their trees this Christmas.

This was one of those secret projects I was sewing over the summer but couldn't tell you about. The baubles were lots of fun to design but it is always a bit weird working on Christmas things in the summer sunshine...

The magazine includes 13 other projects to sew and interviews with awesome crafty people like Ruth Singer, Jan of Daisy Janie, and my lovely friend Christine who is trying out an impressive 52 crafts in 52 weeks and blogging about all of them!

Congrats on the magazine cover!

I like your comment about sewing xmas stuff in the sun. Just imagine how wierd it is for us to be singing about 'dashing through the snow' and then eating roast turkey every year in the summer sunshine...aussie xmas - it's a confusing thing :-)

congrats! Very cute. And they look fairly toddler proof too - we're trying to think of decorations that won't smash into a million pieces now we have one of those mobile wrecking balls.
