If you’re looking for something new and easy-to-make for Christmas, Mary Hertel has the projects for you. Included in Sew Yourself a Merry Little Christmas are eight super-easy projects that you make with any of sixteen adorable paper-pieced blocks. Any block works with any project—how great is that?
Mary has a time-saving technique for paper piecing with less waste that makes piecing the blocks a snap—you don’t have to pre-cut your pieces, but instead you can use scraps and pieces that you cut as you go.
The designs capture the spirit of the holidays in a fresh new way.
How about a cockeyed penguin on a stocking?
Or a quizzical polar bear on a tote?
Or maybe a charming elf on a placemat.
The choice is yours! Start sewing now, and you’ll be ready for the holidays before you know it.
