I hope that you have completed all your sewing of Christmas gifts, drawn close to your family and are settling down to enjoy a wonderful Christmas!
This is my latest Christmas offering - Santa fabric, felt, a Suffolk puff and a wire wreath frame. Very simple to make. You want to know how I did it?
I measured the width of the frame, added an inch, and cut a width of fabric strip of that measurement (my frame was 2" deep, so I cut a strip 5" deep with a pinking cutter).
Then, fold the fabric in half around the frame and sew the long edges together with a running stitch - they will tend to self gather, which is handy!
Add a hanging ribbon and whatever decorations you like that you can create. I did wonder about adding baubles instead of felt decorations, and perhaps hanging some into the centre of the wreath. You could have a lot of fun making these to your own style. Quick to make, easy to personalise. Why stop at one?!?
Happy Christmas to one and all. I hope that your Christmas Wishes come true!
