When I was planning my project for this week, I wanted to use some of the scraps generated by my Hexagon Tree Skirt.
fabric scraps, cut into triangle shapes
Fusible interfacing (I use Pellon SF 101)
Batting (approx. FQ size)
Fat quarter of background fabric
fat quarter of backing fabric
1/4" yard of binding fabric
small scraps for tree trunks
Basting spray I use the June Taylor brand, found at Joann) or safety pins
2) Cut out all pieces.
4) Plan your layout. Make sure you work with at least a 2" border, and lay out the trees in a desirable fashion.
At this point, it's helpful to take a picture of your layout!
6) Continuing with the remaining tree pieces, applique your happy trees.
I tried to create some movement with wavy lines. Have fun with this!
Please be sure to check out the other tutorials from this week!
Meredith is sharing her santa canvas (that you might recognize from our graphic!), and Jessica made a Frosty Advent Calendar! As always, if you make something from our tutorials, please add it to the Holiday Craft Bash flickr group!
We're taking a break for the Thanksgiving holiday next week, but I'll have my last installment up the following Thursday!
