...isn't it! But having been handed a (rather long) Christmas list by Lucy, an idea began floating around in my head. We've just started watching season 4 of The Wire on DVD, so I was after a bit of light hand sewing to do in front of the TV. There are quite a few patterns available on the internet for stuffed trees, but I decided in the end to adapt my own by altering the vase I make for the flower stems.
And, here they are,
also, inspired by the tree print fabric picked up at the Festival of Quilts this year.
I do need to come up with a christmasy tutorial for this year, are the tree's too obvious?
I can tell others are thinking of Christmas already too from my blog stats, the Elf hat tutorial is getting quite a few hits, as it does every year. That was the first tutorial I ever did and quite basic compared to how I would do one now.
Still, I bet there are a fair few kids wearing Elf hats made out of leggings on their heads for the school christmas play!
