Use these cute little decorations as Gift Tags. Tie them on the tree or use them on the Christmas table to tie around the cutlery, wine glass or napkins. We love them!
What you will need:
Assorted pieces of Pretty Fabric about 5’’ (12cm) square for each
Fusible stabiliser (Vlisofix )
Felt ½’’ larger than the pattern shapes
30cm of narrow ribbon for each shape
Pink and red Buttons for the Holly Berries
Download the pattern sheet here
Trace the shapes onto the paper side of the Vlisofix with a sharp pencil leaving ½’’ between shapes. I reversed one stocking for interest.
For the Stocking and the Tree join a strip of contrasting fabric to the main fabric and press away from the main fabric. Top stitch this seam on the Stocking.
Cut out the traced shapes ¼’’ outside the lines.
Fuse the shapes, PAPER SIDE UP, onto the wrong side of the chosen fabric pieces using an iron. Line up the join line on the pattern with the seam in the fabric for the Tree and Stocking.
Carefully cut out the shapes on the lines.
Peel the paper from the back and fuse the shapes to the Felt with an even amount of excess all around.
Carefully sew around the Fabric shape 1/8’’ in from the edge. Press the shapes again in case they have lifted a bit during sewing.
Cut the Felt around the shapes with scissors or Pinking shears leaving a small border of Felt showing.
Fold the ribbon in half and attach at the top on the back with a few stitches in matching thread. Add a Button to the Holly.
Happy Christmas sewing
