We both made squishy fabric Christmas trees along with lots of other xmas goodies, check them out Christmas stockings More christmassy gifts

Laurie made a big plain green one with glued on felt decorations…so much less bother than the traditional sort!

Mine was the smaller version in a nice christmassy check, I attatched a little metal bell to each point. I had a couple of nice yellow plastic buttons that made the star at the top. For the trunk i used a yoghurt pot covered with dark brown felt & with a wire edged ribbon tied around.

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. Helped along the way by sometime models & general pests Izzy the Border Terrier & Archie the Patterdale terrier (spot them in our pic's) We are both living in beautiful Devon but grew up in Norfolk. We call ourselves Fabric Artisans & this has come down through five generations of seamstresses, needle women & crafters of all things fabric.
