Handsewn Christmas decorations

December 18, 2016

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 the 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.
