Tutorial: Shabby Scrappy Christmas Stars!

Yay! Christmas for me, has come early, thanks to the special holiday 'Gift Wrap' print offer at Spoonflower! 
I was sooo excited when my gift wrap order arrived, it was totally ridiculous!!!
.... now all I need to do, is decide if I can actually bring myself to use it!
In the meantime, here is a Tutorial for some 'Easy As' :
Shabby Scrappy Christmas Stars
~ Enjoy :)

Gift Wrap (From Top: Vintage Christmas Stripes & Vintage Christmas) Tutorial: Shabby Scrappy Stars
You will need: fabric scraps, pen, cardstock, pins, cotton, needle, glass beads, stuffing, cord/ribbon.

~ Template : On cardstock draw a freehand star (12cm from point to point)

~ Pin template to a double layer of fabric 

~  Cut out fabric stars 

~ Pin fabric stars (wrong sides together)

~ Sew/bead together (5mm from edge) leaving a small gap in one side

~ Fill star with stuffing 

~ Insert ends of looped cord, and continue sewing to close gap.

~ Using template above as a guide draw an addtional smaller star template (about 10cm across from point to point)

~ Pin 12cm template to a double layer of fabric and cut out fabric stars 

~ Pin 10cm template to a double layer of (contrasting coloured) fabric and cut out fabric stars 

~ Place 1 small star onto 1 large star (right sides up) and pin together 
(creates 1 side of final star) 
Sew fabrics together (very ROUGHLY 5mm from edge) and continue, till you have sewn right around the star twice 

~ REPEAT the last step with the remaining large and small star!

~ Pin sewn stars (wrong sides) together

~ Sew together (5mm from edge) leaving a small gap in one side

~ Fill star with stuffing 

~ Insert ends of looped cord, and continue sewing to close gap.

Mini Print Collection

All new 'Mini Print Collection' 
- Four mini prints for maxi fun!
Today I decided to make some cute fabric gift tags with my new 'Mini Print' samples:(from left) 
I love this time of year, as my crafting box finds its way to the centre of our dining table and I start to think about decorating the house for Christmas!
It's a good thing however, looking at my depleted fabric stash (while drooling over the new Christmas Fabrics at Spoonflower) ... that I'm just in time to take advantage of Spoonflower's upcoming Free Shipping Day on Thursday November 15th, 2012!

Oh! and if Free Shipping isn't cool enough (yes! even to Australia - whoohoo) The fabulous folk at Spoonflower are printing selected designs in the Spoonflower marketplace for a limited time on Gift Wrap!

I think Christmas has surely come early for me this year.
... Happy Crafting :)

"Easy As" Recycled Mini Glass Vase

I love using old glass bottles to display flowers, fresh from the garden.
I find however, that mini glass bottles (recycled from supermarket juice bottles) used on their own can be wobbly at the best of times ... so in order to make these little glass bottles more stable, I decided to join several together, simply by wrapping them with twine!

To make these "Easy As" Mini Glass Vases:
1) Place (a minimum of two) mini glass bottles side by side
2) Wrap twine around the outside of all your mini glass bottles (If joining more than two bottles you will probably need another pair of hands to help you hold the bottles.)
3) Wrap twine tightly between each of the bottles (enough to stop the glass from touching)
4) Fill your new vase with water and flowers and enjoy :)
