Here’s a few more Christmassy & gifty things I managed to produce in time for Xmas 2012
Really easy to make this hanging, it’s a printed cotton panel bought for 80p from local sewing shop backed with plain fabric. Sewn 3 sides & stuffed & a row of stitching under each little picture. Add a hanging loop & bell, super fast decoration, I made another for my mum.
I also had a crazy idea to make each of my work mates a small Christmas dec to go with their Christmas cards…18 in all!
They actually didn’t take too long too make & could be done with scraps. I made a paper template & used it to cut two felt pieces
Using cream embroidery silks I blanket stitched these together & stuffed lightly. Finished off with gingham ribbon, a shell button & a metal “made with love” tag.
About Craft Hill Fabric Artisans
Hi, we are a mother and daughter tea drinking, tattoo wearing duo of crafters. Every Wednesday evening we get together and make beautiful things for friends, family and sometimes ourselves.

We call ourselves Fabric Artisans & this has come down through five generations of seamstresses, needle women & crafters of all things fabric.
