I fell in love with this Christmas fabric

I simply fell in love with this Christmas fabric. From the collection The Giving Quilt for Red Rooster Fabrics. I knew the blocks would lend themselves for necessaires! I used two groups, one with more reds and creams and the other has more greens in it. I even had small mother of pearl hearts in green for the divider!




This necessaire is a little larger as the squares were bigger. When folded it is a 5" square. When rolled out it is 5" wide and 17" long. Lots of hand dyed trims and buttons, charms,etc.

Next I made some necessaires out of the Williamsburg Sampler fabric in the tan/brown tones. It is shown next to the multi-color browns in the first photo. On the inside divider I had some lovely light caramel colored mother of pearl hearts I used.





Thanks for stopping by. I wanted to share the new fabrics. I need to get back to the dye pot. I need to dye 10 yards of primitive colors for a gal and I need to finish it tonight. No rest for the weary.

    1. I don't get tired of making them...but I have learned not to work on something when I am too tired or not in the mood. I once had a dream about a motto pattern that I was stuck on....when I woke up I put the pattern on paper that I came up with in my dream! So yes...I could probably do these in my sleep! lol
