This week I have been making Christmas Tree decorations. I saw something similar in the shops (I know, already!) and I thought I would have a go at making them myself. The felt cost me 90p a sheet and I can get 6 decorations from a sheet so definitely one on the Thrifty side! The buttons and thread I already had.
First I made a template of a Christmas Tree from a cereal packet.
Then I cut two of the tree shapes from the felt:
Then I put the two wrong sides together and then blanket stitch all round the outside (this is so annoying but I cannot get the picture the right way up). This was my first one. My sewing is a bit pants!
