Christmas II

The 'card' I made for DD was much appreciated, but involved too much work to be made for many other people. I was inspired by Wanda's clever use of strips to make book covers, bags, quilts etc. and decided this was a great idea to make a Christmas card or two!


I used white and pale blue strips, and Heat and Bonded them onto a piece of pelmet Vilene. I then added the trees (just free machined round the edge) and the sequin stars, before adding a plain piece of fabric onto the back. Then I zigzagged round the edge to finish. esay, quick and, though I say so myself, effective. I'll write on the back but don't have the guts to just put them in the post - they'll have to go in an envelope first!

Talking of post, I received a surprise package from Karol-Ann.
It was a fabulous collection of strings! Why are other people's fabrics so much more delectable than your own? Many thanks for these, Karol-Ann. I can't wait to use them!

Very nice cards. I had so hoped to make string blocks for Linus, but can't see myself managing anything for a bit. Hope you can use them for something...
