The holiday season is upon us and if you want to decorate your tree, your parcels or your home with selfmade decoration it is about time to start creating. If you are still searching for ideas – I have collected some for you.
Connie Crawley of hello-refabulous.blogspot.com shows how to make the cutest little felt birds. I can’t get enough of them. They are perfect for hanging on the tree or giving a gift a very personal touch. I will make them, embroider the names of my family members at the back and use them as gift tags. Click here for the tutorial.
Karin Jordan of Leigh Laurel Studios has a great idea for tree ornaments made of felt and using the decorative stitches of the sewing machine. They are so easy to make that you can make them together with your kids. Click here.
If you want to invest more time then maybe you would like to make this elaborate ornaments.
If you prefer a non-sewing project this Christmas baubles might be the right thing for you. Easy and fun and a million of possibilities (it’s all in the choice of fabrics).
Of course no Christmas is complete without a star. So here is how to make a patchwork star.
And last but not least here is a tutorial for a very cute reindeer by sewmamasew.com.
Click here for the pattern of the reindeer (it’s a pdf and the pattern is on the last page).
So let’s use the weekend and make some beautiful holiday decoration. Have fun!
