A good while back ( too long for me to admit to!) Lisa at White Tree Fabrics sent me this little bundle. I had promised to make something Christmasy.
I wanted to make a new Christmas garland for my kitchen dresser and had seen some small fabric Christmas Trees with cinnamon sticks used as trunks, on Pinterest.
I love how each one is subtly different.
Mind you, for a seemingly simple project too many of these made the bin instead of the dresser! I soon learnt to check that I had ‘right sides together’, and to remember to sew the string in, and not to get the string caught in the side seam and that too many seams within the tree made turning them right side out very tricky and not to have the hessian as the fabric at the base as it just unravelled as you turned the tree the right way.
They also go lovely with the Christmas Stockings that I made last year. You can read about those here.
What is next on the list? Any one else making some new decorations this year?
Love, Lucie xx
