Day #10: The 12 Days of Christmas

Welcome to Day #10 of the 12 Days of Christmas: Fig Tree Style! Each day we will have a different kit, a different sale and even a few giveaways along the way. Join us each day so that you don't miss out on a single thing. We are so excited to share all of our goodies with you!


Day #10


Thank you to all of you who shared your own Nutcracker memories with me. It is always such a treat for me to read about your lives and things that you remember. So many wonderful memories and traditions! I love it.

Our nutcracker adventure was wonderful… made that much more lovely by three beautiful girls, in their beautiful dresses with their brand new little scarves. I think it was a magical time. It went something like this.

First we made scarves.





Then we twirled around a lot and waited for our friend to arrive, in our scarf.





Then we got bored of waiting…



Then our friend finally arrived and we were on our way!



Then we joined up with another friend at the nutcracker and we sparkled.



Then we got "snowed" on in the outdoor downtown festivities.


We got home tuckered out but very happy.

So now for the goodies.

  First up today...

 One of our all time favorite things to make, FIG TREE SCRAP BAGS. Full of pieces leftover from our studio cutting along with fabric bolt leftovers, with a smattering of strikeoffs that never made it into fabric. They are just the most yummy thing ever. Every year at Pacific International we make up a new set of these especially for our loyal customers from that show. And every year, on Thursday morning, we have a stampede of women who come straight to the booth to see what new scrap bags we have. Some get one, some get 5 and hold them to their chests as if they have found gold as they walk around the rest of the booth to check out the kits and other goodies. I have to say that it is one of my all time favorite moments of any show. It has become so much fun to watch that the vendors around us [the same vendors who who have become our friends over the years as we are always in the same spot] just stand around, waiting with cameras to document this fun frenzy! Sometimes they have come to help us ring so that we could clear away the crowd a little. 


For this sale, we made up some scrap bags especially for you. For those of you who love to sew with small bits and challenge  yourself to make your own fun creations, these will be a lovely acquisition. Have fun and good luck!

Second up today…

You ofcourse bought every possible red and green bundle we could manage to make around here so we thought we would offer up a few Christmas Bundles that we managed to pull together from all of the leftover bolts!


I'm sure these won't be enough for you either, but its all I've got!

Enjoy and click here for more info.

    ohhhhh, how I would love to buy a scrappy bag or 2 LOL, I’m soooooo drooling.
    But with postage it would be too expensive, I’m afraid. I wish the Dutch shops would sell baggies like that.
    Thanks for a lovely ’12 days of Christmas’, I love reading your posts.
    Have a great Holiday time.
    And please tell the ladies in the pictures they look lovely!

    I can imagine the stampede. LOL. Those fabrics are just a delight!

  3. Jenny | 7th Dec 11

    what a treat! such beautiful fabrics.

  4. Robbienae | 7th Dec 11

    Such beautiful young ladies. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  5. Grace | 7th Dec 11

    I would be delighted to purchase one of those scrap bags. It would be like a tin of my favorite homemade cookies to just look at first and drool. I do hope this is offered again when my fiances are stable. Merry Christmas and those of you who do purchase the scrap bag enjoy and create.

  6. LeAnn | 7th Dec 11

    Loved the photos of the girls! And I’m off to check out the scrap bags.

  7. patty Flynn | 7th Dec 11

    I guess I get there too late–never knew you had scrap bags

  8. SandyG | 7th Dec 11

    The girls looked beautiful for their evening out. So glad you had a magical time.

    It looks like it was a cyber stampede! I missed it again, and it was only 9:00 ET! I’ll try for tomorrow!

  9. Marcia R | 7th Dec 11

    I think you are a marketing genius! I’m thinking I want to buy everything full price before it goes on sale and disappears. 🙂 The girls are beautiful – you gave them something to shine about that night!

  10. Andrea | 7th Dec 11

    My husband will thank you for selling out before I got there =) I, on the other hand, will be having sugar plum dreams of scrap bags and Christmas bundles =)

  11. The Army of Four | 7th Dec 11

    Oh, the girls are just such dolls! What a magical time. Thanks for sharing with us!

  12. Jean | 7th Dec 11

  14. Joan | 7th Dec 11

    The fabrics are so pretty and the girls are so cute. Happy Holidays!

  15. Penny | 7th Dec 11

    Not Much of a treat when everything is sold out every time I click on the special.
    Why not offer a discount on all fabric instead of just your limited supply

  16. Helen Lebrett | 7th Dec 11

    Your daughter is so cute!! Thanks for sharing the sweet photos 🙂 And now I know that I’m going to PIQF on Thursday: gotta join the frenzy!! (maybe Weds. nite to stay in a hotel and miss the morning traffic!!)

  17. Mary Jo | 7th Dec 11

  18. Kelsey | 7th Dec 11

  19. Sandra Davidson | 7th Dec 11

    What sweet little girls, they look so adorable in their matching scarves. I am glad they had such a wonderful time. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s to you and your family.

  20. Mary Kay | 7th Dec 11

    Such cute little girls and what fun times! I am blessed with five grandsons but would sure like to have a granddaughter one of these days 🙂

  21. Brenda Sanders | 7th Dec 11

    What cute girls! I’m sure they had a wonderful time from the smiles on their faces. I missed out on all the specials today…oh, well, maybe tomorrow!

  22. MonicaP | 7th Dec 11

    Hi Joanna, I always know when you offer something, buy it right away or it’s gone. I’m so happy I caught the scrap bags this morning. I hope you’ll have more of those. Thanks for all the fun! Thanks for sharing the pictures of your precious children (and friends).

  23. patty Flynn | 7th Dec 11

    I could not access the scrap bags or the red/green bundles. If any left at the end of the week, bring to “midnight”
    also snuggle

    The sugarplum fairies (girls) were wonderful. Brings back many Nutcracker memories

  24. Sharon | 7th Dec 11

    As per the above comment I also could not access the scrap bags or the red/green bundles. Does that mean they are all sold out??
