Some Christmas Felty Inspiration
Grab yourself some felt and your box of embroidery thread and revisit all those stitches you used to do in high school craft classes - running stitch, chain stitch, blanket stitch, french knots and lazy daisy!
The whole family can join in. Pippa (age 2) made the star on the right with just a little help from her mum!
If you've still got some time, make some decorative garlands. The lucky recipient of your beautifully wrapped gift can use the garland to decorate their tree next year! Cut yourself a stack of felt stars. Pick your favorite decorative stitch on your sewing machine and whiz them though fast leaving the sewing machine running to create lengths of thread between each star.
PS If you live in Sydney and can't remember all those stitches or haven't conquered your fear of using a sewing machine, come and do our Christmas workshop. We will show you how to make all these projects. Details can be found on our Timetable of Classes page.
