Once again I had the privilege of reviewing some Makower fabrics.

This is their new Scandi range and it has some very pretty designs in classic red and modern grey.

There are also some lovely patterns, cute stockings and advents on the Makower website.

I received some 10″ square samples to play with so decided to make up a couple of placemats. Always handy as an extra Christmas gift and good to get ahead.I wanted to use as many of the samples to show their beauty

I started by joining three rectangles approx.10″ x 3″

Next I cut out some quirky  triangles with pinking scissors and some tree trunks using some Bondaweb and applied them naively to the background.

Machined some 10″ x 3″  sides on…

Layered up with wadding and backing and free motioned round the trees. I also added a line of snowflakes…

Trimmed off and bound to finish.

Makower fabrics are always a pleasure to work with and this Scandi range will no doubt be as popular as ever for next Christmas.
