Hey fellow sewers, crafters and designers!

Today I started my planning for Christmas projects and came across the links below. I know, it seems early to be thinking about that, but if I don’t do it now, we won’t have Christmas till spring.
Anyway, I would love to know what you will be working on and if you have some related links that would be helpful for crafting a perfect winter! Maybe you have some creative ideas for using Burdastyle patterns. Just chime in with your ideas from sewing, cooking, crafting, knitting or other fine arts medium.

    dear sew4my3! i could easily understand you, with the start of planning for christmas. i started to work on these things just a few days ago, when i got my first load of christmasprinted fabrics. as i will participate on a little christmas market just at the end of november beginning of december (and this for the 4th time!) i collected ideas, what to do during the year (not so much links from the net, but more things, i thought, could be nice to be done and good to be sold!)

    1) i will do all kind of different sized and styled handbags, bags and clutches (some i have made allready and you can see in my profile

    2) i am sewing at the moment heart-shaped little cushions, filled with rice and dried lavender (HALF AND HALF)

    3) i will sew fabric-pears and fabric-apples filled with either lavender or rice, fragranced with christmas-tea (i did those last year and have sold about 50 of them!) – you can see them as well in my profile

    4) i will do some bigger pillows in christmas fabric-patchwork (just like i did last year, as i have sold those as well very good

    5) followed by the project christmas-stockings. last year i just have done a few of those, quite simple ones, and i could sell them quite well, but the ones i did for my friends (more ornated and with thicker (gobeline-like) fabric, i liked even more, so i planned in doing those for the market this year

    6) my favorite one: little fabric-animals. i will do again some reindeers, but will do in addition some cats and some pinguines

    ……..this will be the one side of my selling-corner in the shop. the other side is traditionally my food. i do cordials, jams, rellishes and chutneys as well as christmas cockies (about 20 differen recepies) and something that is called “stollen” wich is a sweet heavy breat with dried fruit and nuts in it

    by now, i am sure, you understand that i love christmas. if you like, just pass by my profile to see the growing amount of things for this years market

    ho ho ho!!!

    Wow! Do you ever leave the sewing machine? What great ideas and it is awesome that you do craft shows! I took a look at your studio again, and found the items above and boy are they fantastic. I really wish you the best on your selling! Let me know how it goes and which one of your items sells the best. How did you decide on pricing?

    I’m afraid I have no thought for Christmas right now. I have a very busy session teaching, and I have decided to organize my first fashion collection for the (late) spring 2011, so every moment I have which is not spent dealing with teaching, is being spent on drawing, designing, pattern drafting, developing mock-ups, measuring models, testing out new concepts, planning the venue for the launching event and overall putting into shape my first major collection!
