Christmas pudding bauble,

As my part of the 'Sew a Softie for Christmas' campaign, here is my pattern to make a really simple Christmas pudding tree decoration.




You will need...

a circle of brown fabric, can be patterned or plain, 15cm (5 3/4") in diameter
white felt 12cm x 12cm (5" x 5")
green felt 8cm x 8cm (3" x 3")
2 or 3 red buttons
white embroidery thread (I used pearl cotton 8)
brown embroidery thread 
brown sewing thread
toy stuffing

plus the usual needle, pins, scissors etc...

(Templates, drag and drop the image onto your desktop and print)

STEP 1
Hand sew a running stitch, using the brown sewing thread, 0.5cm (1/4") in from the edge, all the way round the brown circle of fabric.  Gently pull the thread to begin gathering and stuff the inside with the toy stuffing.  Once you are happy with the shape of the pudding, pull the thread tight to continue gathering, and secure closed with a few stitches. 

STEP 2
Cut the icing shape from the white felt, either pin or hold in place, over the top of the pudding, hiding the gathering, and sew in place using running stitch around the edge using the white embroidery thread.

STEP 3
Cut out three holly leaves from the green felt and attach in place to the top of the pudding by adding some leaf veins in straight stitches using the white embroidery thread.  Add holly berries by sewing the red buttons in the centre of the leaves.  Finish off by adding a long loop of brown embroidery thread to the top of the pudding so it can hang from your Christmas tree.


Make as many as you want, I used scraps of fabric from old clothing, even the buttons are up cycled. 

The pudding baubles are quick, simple and cheap to make.


The idea of the 'Sew a Softie Day' is to get more people sewing, and Softies are so easy to make.  Check out the 'Sew a Softie Day' blog for more information and other sewing patterns you could sew.  Join the Facebook group and you'll find a 'stocking' full of additional patterns too.

As with all of my free patterns, refer to the images if there's anything you're stuck with, sometimes seeing it makes it easier to understand than reading it, if there's anything you're stuck on, send me an email or leave a comment and I will help.

Don't forget about my other Christmas tutorials, you can find the Christmas Tree Softie via this link.

Those would make great pincushions. Or with weights a paperweight.

Make three, fill with rice and you could juggle.

Very fun. I'm going to let my friend who loves to hand sew know about this. It's just her sort of thing
