How to:

Materials: Felt, Ribbon, Buttons, Cord, DMC thread, Stars, Holly Stamp, Paint

1: Cut 2 of each template, so you have a front and back.

2: Tie cord into loop and stitch to the back of the front.

3: Cut an extra circle out of white felt to make the icing.

Present Box: Machine stitch your cross on or hand stitch. Add your ribbon and button.

Then you can hand stitch the front and back together. Once you have finished stitching together use a pencil to stamp the spots.

Xmas pudding: Hand stitch the bottom icing first for detail and then add the buttons and holly leaves- add some detail to the leaves. Then you can stitch the front and back together. I also changed the color when stitching the icing and then red pudding.

Tree: Fold the trunk in half and slip between each felt piece. Now hand stitch together, when you get to the top add the star and just pierce another hole. Once you have finished stitching together use a pencil to stamp the spots.

Note: Make sure you add the cord to the back of the front piece. This way the back is nice and neat with just a boarder stitch all the way round.

There you go – all done…. Three cheers for you…. I hope you have fun and enjoy!

Happy Xmas Felting
