Christmas is less than one month away, so I have begun some serious preparation. Since my sewing machine is out of order at the moment, I borrowed my daughter’s (she’s not home so she won’t mind lol). First stage for today was to sort materials. I have bought more printed fabric squares, felt and ribbon, not to mention some iron-backing so I began by ironing my fabric (uncut) onto the backing and then cut up all my squares. Used pinking shears for a nice zig-zag as I think it looks prettier. Then cut my felt squares (just roughly) and lengths of ribbon . . . and then I was all set.
I began with red thread on the sewing machine and zoomed through some red felt squares
then changed over to green to add to the pile
The next stage gave me some lovely blisters on my thumb . . . as I then trimmed each decoration with pinking shears but it was well worth it as I then had 50 cute tree decorations
However, it was not all plain sailing . . . oh no . . . when I was trimming the felt, I discovered I’m made a mistake with some of the fabric squares . . . spot the error
A few more pictures of some of my favourite prints from this fabric
