Sew & Tell Challenge: my finished Xmas boards!

(Hello to all the American Sew & Tell Challenge readers following Amylouwho!!! Welcome to New Zealand's Amy lovers!)

Right - finally after many late nights I've finished the Christmas Card Keepers! These have just gone up for sale on my Felt Store this week and priced for $NZ28 - a bargain! But I chose the price as I really want to encourage people to get into the swing of bringing back Christmas Cheer and encouraging kids to get in traditional crafts.

As promised, I will send each buyer's children a 'card from Santa' in the mail to start your board off. These are going to be handmade with love by Greta's sister - check out her range on Topography's site.

As a second encouragement - in October OTLP will be running a giveaway of our Christmas products of your choice of colours - it will be a two tiered prize approach. One of the prizes will be six pack of the GORGEOUS Songbird Designs Christmas Cards - those featured in the photography on my boards. All designed by a lovely crafter here in New Zealand and divine. Follow this blog to find out more details on how to enter...

So - three ways to buy:

1. Visit my online store and choose your favourite design

2. Buy the Amy Butler Cherry Spot Christmas board I've donated to the FeltAID Christchurch earthquake appeal at

3. Visit Greta and I on our stand at the Devonport Craft Market - Oct 3rd.


  1. Pretty board--this is a great idea!

  2. i love the mini-clothespins! It's hard to find things like that around here. This much cuter than my tape-them-on-the-back-of-the-door method.

  3. Wow, after seeing the stockings, you have some really great ideas for using fabric! I'm so jealous, you are so creative!

  4. LOVELY - I am going through all my blog reading for the first time in 2 weeks so have only just noticed the post! YAY for the Christmas Boards! Sx

  5. Great idea! I think the dots fabric is perfect.

  6. Love the polka dots and those mini clothespins are so cute! I might have to steal this idea!
