I have another pattern that uses my new Mini Dresden Plate Template. This one is a Christmas pattern, go figure, huh?
It’s called Bits of Dresden Christmas Stocking:
Do you get the title now? I used bits & pieces of a Dresden plate and appliqued them onto the stocking. This was so fun to create! I had the idea in my head as I was working on other designs for my booth at market and finally, by the time I was ready to work on it, all the pieces came together so to speak. No pun intended, really!
It’s a generous sized stocking, so you can fill it with LOTS of goodies. My kids would tell you there is no reason to make a small Christmas stocking and I would have to agree with them. It is quilted so it is nice and sturdy too. A great usable gift for years to come for sure!
The pattern includes a paper template for the Dresden petals, but as I explained in an earlier post, the Plexiglass template allows you to cut multiple layers quickly and more accurately. You can purchase the pattern & template at your local quilt shop, or if they’re not carrying them yet, you can purchase them here.
One more pattern to go!
Until next time,
