This tree is a favourite of mine. It features in the the book All Things Christmas.
It's nice to needle turn appliqué.
Perfect for felt appliqué on a set of pillows; they are addictive.
And here it is as tag using the raw edge appliqué technique.
Once I had the fabrics chosen it was so quick to do. I just started sewing and worked things out like, what to do about the edges and how to hang it as I went. On a whim the edges were trimmed with scalloped edged scissors and eyelets added. No hand sewing required!
If you'd like to make the tag, follow the instructions for the Birdie Tag (page 17) and the Oh Christmas Tree - Pillows diagram (page 6) as a guide.
The plan is to do a little more decorating this weekend. The longer I leave it the less time there is to enjoy it.
The bunting, Must be Christmas, will be one of the first things to go up. The flags are stitched with a Christmas alphabet with crazy patchwork flags in between.
Now the fabrics used in the sample are long gone but I do have some lovely ones that can be substituted. You'll find a kit for the bunting here.
Please note, I cannot guarantee orders placed now will arrive before Christmas. It's safer to assume they won't to avoid disappointment.
