Gaze at the Northern Lights by Lewis and Irene

Lewis & Irene have released a most spectacular Christmas fabric range. Northern Lights is full of stars, swirling lights and Santa and his reindeer flying overhead.

Can you imagine a Christmas eve in Iceland, looking up at the sky? That is how this fabric range looks. Beautiful isn’t it?

The blues and greys in this range bring out feelings of a snowy winter and Christmas (not that we get much snow in the UK – But we can wish!) What I like about this fabric is that while it is obviously Christmasy, it could be used all winter. The Northern Lights fabric and Stars can be used for a wide variety of projects that aren’t just for the festive season.

With Christmas fast approaching (Gulp! Where has this year gone?!) we thought we would share some winter projects you could make with this gorgeous fabric.

These festive table mats, from our free Christmas eBook,  are perfect for a little extra special festive decor. They are quick and simple to make and you could make these with the Artic Animals fabric for the main fabric, Northern Lights for the border and Stars for the strip detail. The Cosy winter scarf is perfect for those colder winter days. It features an embroidered snowflake detail and pockets to keep your hands warm. We couldn’t give you a selection of festive makes without showing you this Holly Jolly Stocking. It is a Christmas must, for both children and adults. Choose a selection of the whole Northern Lights range and make this strip stocking. It will look stunning next to your fireplace on Christmas morning.

Holiday Tree Skirt

Tree skirts are something not everyone has, but should. Not only are they practical, by gathering those pesky pine needles, they are also pretty and add an extra something to your tree. You can personalise your skirt to match your Christmas theme too. The Northern Lights fabric range would work a treat for this pattern. You can take one of the patterns in a variety of colour ways and create a beautiful silver and blue decoration.

You’ll get to use all of this beautiful fabric range as it recommends you use five different fabrics. It is great to have a mixture of the larger patterns, such as the Arctic Animals and the Santa’s Sleigh, and the smaller prints such as Northern Lights and the Stars. You’ll get that lovely reveal of fabrics as you hand out pressies to loved ones on Christmas day.

There are so many different projects that you can make with this fabric, both festive and for the year round. Lewis & Irene have their own idea of what you could make with this range too.


They have released a pattern for this festive table runner. This would be a gorgeous centrepiece for you Christmas day meal. They have also given you three different variations of the table runner in three different colour ways. You can download the pattern for the table runner for free here or get everything to need to make the table runner with our kit here.

Other patterns in the range include Walrus and Friends and Arctic Animals prints
