Tartan Fabric Handmade Christmas Cards

IMG_9300.JPG

Most years I make my own Christmas cards as long as they don’t cost more to make than buy, as sometimes is the case with craft. However everything I had was to hand and the fabric was some vintage scraps I found at the bottom of a box.

So it’s a new departure for the blog, but I thought I’d give it a whirl and there is still plenty of time to make these simple cards and send them before Christmas.

All you need is:
Plain cards or A5 folded in half
Scraps of material
Pinking shears
Thread to match your material
Ideally a sewing machine, (you could hand see if making a few only)

Cut out triangles of your chosen fabric.
Lay them on your card
Sew from top to bottom holding your Christmas tree in place as you go, starting about 1cm above the tree, straight stitch all the way down to about 2cm below the tree, to give it a trunk.

Snip off the ends of thread.
