The Mystery C.A.L Christmas square!!

                                                     In true S.I.B.O.L. style :0)

I designed this square for the Christmas challenge of red,white & green, so that anyone who was stuck as what to do could quickly make this and customise it to their own liking making it truely unique.

The Pattern ~~~ Please note this pattern has been designed for S.I.B.O.L and polite etiquette should be applied if you wish to use it elsewhere. Thank you x


Are you stuck with what to do for the Christmas challenge?

Decorate the green with ribbon, buttons seed beads etc ;)

Hope you give it a try my pictures of said mystery C.A.L will be posted by Sue when she recieves them hehe
Enjoy much Love Amanda xxx
Ive tried to make it as simple as possible but if there's anything your unsure of please do comment one of us should be able to help you xxxxx

Extra notes :0)
At step 7 check that an HDC wll fit it may only need a SC all around :)

Finished and measuring a perfect 6" :0) if you haven't quite got 6" will a round of SC do it or maybe blocking if only a smidgen out which can be done by pinning down to the 6" and spraying with cold water or spray starch and allowing to dry?
Have fun much love Amanda xxx
