It's very strange working on Christmas decorations when it's so hot outside, but Pinwheels make you feel fresh, don't they? So put Christmas and Pinwheels together and you have the Christmas Pinwheel Lollipop!
The centre of this Pinwheel didn't come as precise as I would of liked it to be and I was about to unstitch the whole thing when I remembered I had these pretty wooden heart shaped buttons. Sewed one in the middle and solved the problem in a flash!
These are the Daisy Pinwheel blocks I started off with, using a dark and a light coloured Christmas themed fabric to make the pinwheel more evident.
More Christmas Pinwheel Lollipops coming up. They can be used as decorations on the Christmas Tree if you add a tag at the back to hang them up. They're also a fancy decoration to add wrapping up a present: you can just use brown paper, a red ribbon and a Christmas Pinwheel Lollipop to make a present more special and personal. They'd make great place names for the Christmas table or an original substitute for a Christmas card just be adding a handwritten message on a plain ribbon, tied round the stick.
I'm joining the Flickr group for Across The Pond with the Christmas Pinwheel Lollipop. I've just realised I'm a bit cheating because with this project I'm covering last month's theme too, which was Christmas in July! I hope the Across the Pond Sew Along friends don't mind.
I'm also joining Summercrafter's Friday Night Block Party (late, as usual) because I discovered, thanks to Amy @ Amy Made That!, that this week theme is Pinwheels. I love, love, love Pinwheels!
