Christmas bauble


Yes, more sewing today. Do you realise 6 months today will be Christmas Eve! Isn't that a shocking thought. Am I half way through my Christmas makes, of course not, but I am making good progress. I saw an idea on the Papercrafter page on Facebook for some felt baubles and thought I would adapt the idea, as I always do. I watched the you tube video and the demonstrator had cut a piece of felt in a zigzag to represent the trees but I didn't want to do this. I like to use dies wherever I can.

I used a circle die for the bauble, hill and tree dies, then did running stitch on the snow. I then sewed on some tiny buttons, added the ribbon and blanket stitched around the edge. I filled the bauble, but not as much as the animals I sew as I didn't want it too puffy.  I am rather pleased with the way it turned out and will be making some more of these along with all my other sewing projects.

I would like to enter this into the bright and cheerful challenge at Simon Says.

I just thought the same when I was scheduling next Sunday's month challenges, scary indeed, it's a lovely seasonal bauble though.

This is just so sweet. Always love the use of buttons on anything, (I used to be a button collector, so have tons). I like your idea of using the dies for the trees, and all your colors look so pretty together. Your blanket stitch trim is just so nice & evenly done. This will look lovely decorating your tree this December. This year is really speeding rapidly. Hard to believe 2018 is half over! TFS
