What materials did you use? I tried to match the colours from the pattern as best as I could. I liked the rusty red and turquoise green shades, which were a change from the usual Christmas green and red. I wasn't able to find a dark multi-coloured stripe, like the one on the pattern, so ended up finally with a leafy batik design which had the right sort of colours.

What are you most proud of? I changed the shape of the angel's wing, as I first one which I cut out from the pattern looked a bit weird. I was really happy with my new alternative.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I had never really done applique before. I used 'Steam a seam,' to apply my angel and hearts and didn't need to stitch around them, as they stuck so well.

Here is everything for a real Christmas - angel, stars, tree, gifts and hearts.
