Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells…

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Die Hard is on the TV… giggle. Die Hard is definitely a Christmas movie in our house. Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman in the same movie, what could be better!? Except maybe Clark Griswold.

The ‘Mrs Claus in a Bikini’ template has been uploaded to our free pattern page. Mrs Claus will fit the Christmas Apron pattern and the Here Comes Santa, Santa Sack pattern (Etsy).

The ‘Mr Claus in his Board Shorts’ template from the Santa Sack pattern will also fit the Apron pattern if you’d like to make a matching set of Summer Santa aprons.

You can download the apron pattern from the free patterns page here. Confused yet? LoL.

Please read the size guide instructions carefully. It’s very easy to resize the apron but I would recommend making a template to check your sizing before you begin, especially the top of the apron where it fits over your bust. Keep in mind that Aussie sizes are very different from US sizes.

No. 1 daughter is modelling the apron (whilst doing the dishes ha ha). She is wearing a medium sizing. I would strongly suggest making a paper or scrap fabric template to check your size before making the real thing.


The Mrs Claus in a Bikini template and Christmas Apron pattern will only be free for a couple of weeks so download them while you can. They will revert to being paid patterns in 2020.


Did you see the photos of the Godzilla Christmas tree in Japan? Isn’t it amazing. I love that it breathes smoke.

And on that note, it’s time for coffee and some down time before bed. My kids are arguing about space turkeys. I have no idea and I don’t intend to ask. The only turkey I’m interested in is one stuffed and served with cranberry sauce. Nite lovelies and Merry Christmas, toni xx

  1. I hope you have a great holiday season Toni! Thank you for all you do in creating such cute things for all of us.

    LOVE the smoke from that tree in Japan too.

    Please contact me. I tried multiple times to email you and cannot do so. The webform will not allow me to type in my name. That box isn’t even viewable until I start typing in my email address and then it types that into a different box which magically appeared underneath the word “Name” BUT will not let me type anything after that. I give up and thought for sure I had your email address but don’t. Thank you

    • Hi Vicki, I’m sorry you are having troubles. It sounds like one of those weird tech glitches. I have a blog I’ve been following for years and this year, of all a sudden, I can’t interact with it (ie. leave comments or email).
      I’m not sure I have your email address (the right one) in my address book. Can you message me at this email address –

      redbootquilts@bigpond.com and I’ll get back to you asap. Merry Christmas, toni xx

  2. Merry Christmas, thanks for a great year of lovely patterns from you. Loving Mrs Claus! All the best for 2020.

  3. Thanks for this fun Mrs. Claus pattern. I am sorry you didn’t ask about the space turkeys! LOL!!!! I want to know about them… 🙂
