Christmas is our favorite time of year at Erik HOMEMADE(R)! We love the sights sounds and smells...and of course the fabrics! We seem to generate a lot of scraps in the holiday theme making what we make...and we can never get enough, let alone part with the scraps!

Yet the questions kept coming...all while we were working on our Christmas projects. So the idea came forward that we should give a Holiday mystery a go. After finishing the Scrap Pile project, we could easily follow into Christmas.
