Today we finished trimming up, adding lights to the pallet Christmas tree I created last year. I love the addition of lights, they add the missing sparkle:)
If you would like to make a pallet Christmas tree the tutorial is here. However I neglected to share how to make the fabric handsewn Christmas decorations. So here you are, ever so simple:)
You will need some fabric scraps, pieces of ribbon, stuffing, needle and thread – plus cookie cutters for templates.
Start by stitching ribbons across fabric. Use a cookie cutter as a template and cut out to pieces of fabric. Place the right sides together and stitch round allowing a turning gap. Turn the right side out, stuff then slip stitch together along the turning gap.
Ever so easy and great for using up fabric scraps. Have you made decorations this year? Christmas is a great excuse (if I ever needed one!) to make and create:)
Do you own a serger/overlocker that just sits in a box? I have to admit I can have a love/hate...
