So here's a mini photo tutorial to accompany a new product I've just created for Christmas. It's basically a make your own kit for a Christmas decoration. The kit provides you with ribbon, instructions and my screen-printed fabric and you'll just need to find scissors, needle, thread, pins and your choice of stuffing.
Here's the 'how to' bit - although I'm sure you find it's easy enough to figure out! To buy your own Make Your Own Christmas decoration kit please visit my shop on Two Red Trees- I'm only making it available to buy online through them. Priced under a fiver, including shipping it'll also make the perfect stocking filler for the budding crafter. Enjoy!
|Cut out the designs following the dashed lines|
|Fold over the ribbon and pin upside down on the tree side|
|Place the bauble side on top of the tree side so that the designs are hidden and pin in place|
|Sew by hand or using a sewing machine sew all the way round leaving aprox. a 1 inch gap near the bottom|
|Turn your decoration right side out- you may like to give it a quick warm iron.|
|Choose your stuffing- hollow fibre, lavender, christmas pot pourri are all good options!|
|Thread a needle and stitch it up...|
|And voila- it's complete!|
Hang your decoration where people will notice and enjoy the many compliments you will receive for your handywork!
