O Christmas Tree!

I have so many little off-cuts of fabric left over that this weekend I thought I would put them to good use and make a little patchwork Christmas Tree! It's been decorated with cream ric-rac braid and green buttons from my vast collection. It just needs a little star or ribbon bow at the top. I have so many ideas for some more; I'd love to make a lace one with mother of pearl buttons, sort of vintage style.

After making the tree, I was doodling a star with a Teddy Bear in it. I wanted to make a decoration to go on a Christmas tree that could be personalised.

This is it made in felt.

Another doodle with a little girl's face.

Almost done, just needs blanket stitching all the way round the edges.


  1. What a cute bear face. I love the expression. xx

  2. Thanks Andi! I'm thinking perhaps I could adapt this to lots of different little characters! x
