Sew Happy Sew Along Christmas Banner

My Sew Happy Christmas Banner is hanging across the mantle! This was an eight week sew along; each week was a redwork pattern and the last week was the finishing instructions. Although it was free, now the pattern is offered for seven dollars (I think).

As you can see, each square is happy and delightful!

It wasn't hard to complete each week because it wasn't overwhelming.

My time is pretty limited, so it took me two evenings during the week to complete each square.

I looked forward to each Friday to see what pattern was next!

My kids even looked forward to see what vision of Christmas I was working on.

I can't believe how quickly the weeks went by. Before I knew it...
the last pattern was up and the following week the instructions were given. I was very impressed with how clear the finishing instructions were and how nicely they turned out. I especially like the covered buttons and the red and white gingham! It just enhances the country(ish), childlike look I was hoping for.
