Christmas Spirits

Free Project Instructions!

Christmas spirits are on their way to bring beauty and grace to your season! New designs featuring delicate and graceful fairies are just right for adding a touch of magic to holiday projects.

Art Nouveau fairies stroll through rich panels, Jacobean fairies rest on graceful circles and swirls, and merry fairy silhouettes flutter and dazzle. They're just right for bringing a bright touch of fantasy to dark winter days!

Quick-stitching redwork Christmas fairies will bring a smile to any face, and are perfect for creating fast, but still special and personal, homemade gifts.

Plus: two new Crafty Collectibles make their debut this week -- a reindeer making good use of his antlers to hold sewing supplies, and a patchwork Christmas stocking stuffed with crafty goodies.



Christmas stockings make great gifts! New this week, Kenny shares free project instructions for a rag quilt stocking. This new homespun stocking coordinates perfectly with our classic rag quilt tree skirt.
