Penny Wraps Up the Year

The end of 2021 is upon us, and no, I cannot believe it, can you?

Penny (by Linda Macario) is wrapping up the year by showing you her holiday ensemble, my last make of the year. She is dressed warm and snuggly, and a good thing, too; we have snow coming tomorrow–the first measurable of the season. We’ve all been waiting… It will be magical!

Doesn’t Penny look warm dressed in “Homespun Holiday”? She wears a wooly cardigan and pixie hat along with rosy heather tights. The dress is sewn with one of my favorite holiday prints, “Under the Mistletoe” by Anni Downs of Hatched & Patched. I love the many primitive motifs and the palette of muted colors the designer used in this print. In 2015 I used this same fabric to make my Little Darling, Gina, a holiday ensemble. Here is a link to that ensemble’s post if you’d like to see more photos. Even though this fabric is probably impossible to find now Anni has a Christmas collection coming out in May which looks like there might be some cute prints included in it. Also, more pictures of her fabric here.

So as we wave ‘so long’ to 2021, Penny and I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year! Have a safe and enjoyable New Year’s Eve, too! Do you have exciting plans? It’ll be pretty quiet here by me.

Love 💖 from my girls and I. xoxo
