Hand made Christmas - Tree decoration.

I had a creative moment today and decided to make some Christmas tree decorations, I kept the design simple and used some of the left over fabric from the Santa wallhanging. It was whilst I was doing this that I realised that I had never finished posting about that, so I shall remedy that tomorrow. But for now here's one I made today... :D

You will need:
4 different fabric designs
Iron on adhesive backing
Quilters wadding
Scissors
Thread

The basic design

Trace the shapes

Iron onto adhesive backing and cut out

Positon shapes and iron

Peel off the backing from adhesive and applique

Trace the outer shape for the backing, iron on adhesive backing and cut out

Place on some wadding

Flip and place cut out fabric backing, place cotton or ribbon at this point for hanging and then iron, trim wadding



Blanket stitch applique around the edges
