Mom’s Mistletoe

Look what my mom just whipped up! She made it from my  “Magical Mistletoe” pattern featured in Quilting Arts Gifts 2010.

 Isn’t my mom talented? (And you wondered where I got it from.)

The special issue is packed with great ideas for wonderful, whimsical hand-made gifts for the holidays. It is available through Quilting Arts, and on  newsstands.

Looking for the little felted wool balls to make this project? Ask at your local quilt or craft shop, or shop online at Handbehg Felts. And if you are planning to make some of these as gifts, hurry; Christmas is coming sooner than we’d all like!

You can see my version in a previous blog post here

  3. Robbie, My mom made one to hang in her house, and I think she is going to make one or two more to give as gifts. The Gifts issue has so many great ideas in it this year, doesn't it?

  7. Susan, I just finished my mistletoe to hang in the entryway of my Victorian home. I love it! I have a second one almost done. Not sure who will receive it, but I'm sure I'll have more requests once it is seen by family and friends.
