Von Glöckchen, Sternchen usw. / About small bells, stars etcetera
During the year I rather prefer light or pastell colors with a lot of white. But for Christimas I stick to the classical red, green and cold. Small bells in red and green have been sewn and now already decorate various Christmas gifts.
For glass- or bottle coaster I wanted to sew some stars. But these here are still a little too big. So I am now going to make them smaller.

I also made some other and quick little bags for handkerchiefs (here I found the tutorial) and these have already gone to friends who have caught a cold.
Somewhere I discovered nice clamshell cases. However, Clover is going to sell these templates in Switzerland only next year ( I directly asked in Japan). But I didn't want to wait so long and so I tried to make the form out of template plastic, covered them with fabric and some thin batting and sewed all three pieces together by hand.
It was a fiddly job though, but they do look quite similar to the original one.
I also made some new little pouches in different forms. With the appreciated tipp of Hannelore to use a special teflon presser foot it's an easy job now to work with coated fabric.
