Gorgeous Christmas Fabric

I love the brightly-coloured Christmas motifs on this Christmas-themed fabric. I bought it from a shop called Candleberry Country in a small town called Yarragon, about an hour from Melbourne, Australia.

Candleberry Country is a wonderful shop - it is filled with fabrics, sewing patterns and supplies, patchwork quilts, handmade items, and much more. It is well worth a visit, or you can order online too from the Candleberry Country website

I'm not yet sure what I'll use the fabric for. I might cut it up and use individual motifs to make Christmas cards. I haven't yet used fabric for card making, so it would be good to experiment. I bought a fat quarter of the fabric for A$6 - a little more than I would normally pay but I was in the mood to treat myself!

Does anyone have any other ideas for using this fabric?

Yarragon is a wonderful place to visit if you like arts and crafts. You can read more about our visit on my other blog, Moving to Australia on a 457 visa.

Hi Roz!

thanks for stopping by my blog and your kind comment! I'm glad you enjoyed your Christmas in Germany - that's an interesting fact I didn't previously know :)

I LOVE that fabric. Have you used it yet? I was thinking it would make a fun apron for the holidays...

Wishing you all the best for 2010!

Hi Duni

Thanks for your good wishes.

No, I haven't used the fabric yet - making an apron is a good idea. Unfortunately, I've not had time for much crafting at all recently. I liked the apron you made - it looked great!

Best wishes for 2010,

Wonderful fabric, looks like Christmas Candy to me. It would make a darling apron; though when I looked at it I was thinking a quilted purse/bag that would be carried during the holidays. Then read the suggestion of apron and liked that idea too.

Good luck, keep us posted.

Hi Sandy

Thanks for visiting and your suggestions. I also thought that it would make a cute little bag! I still haven't done anything with it. Hopefully I'll get around to making something with it before next Christmas!!

Best wishes,
