The last of my Christmas gift sewing is done – YIPPEE! A host gift for my aunt and uncle who will be having the family en masse on Christmas Day.
It’s a modified version of the Nine Patch Door Stop by Elizabeth Green at Oh, Fransson! What a terrific tutorial! I didn’t have enough time to do the patchwork front, so just used a feature fabric and quilted it (and the back of the doorstop, in the same quilting design). It’s filled with beans (it takes quite a lot) and has a zipper at the bottom so it can be emptied for washing. I’m going to make loads more of these – they’re useful and attractive. Actually, I made one the same for me.
My presser foot mechanism on my sewing machine gave up the ghost just as I was completing the last seams of the door stop. It is now booked in for a service. No wonder!
