With exactly four weeks until Christmas day, it is time to get Christmas crafting!
The team at Linton Tweeds have put their heads together to come up with ten easy-peasy Christmas creations to make from your Christmas Fabric Craft Packs, available exclusively on our website here.
By using recycled remnants to create gifts/decorations this Christmas, it is not only fun and affordable, but it is an environmentally friendly option to cut back on purchasing brand new products, thus reducing unnecessary waste!
So, let’s get crafting!
Coming in at number 10 it is festive tree decorations; small, simple and unique, you can use them again and again! They also make lovely gifts.
At number 9 we have Christmas Garlands. These are very simple yet effective, and you don’t need to be a sewer to create this wonderful adornment for your home.
At number 8 we have festive bows/ bowties. Add a fun and eye-catching accessory to your Christmas ensemble! Perfect for your Christmas party! You could even make one for your pet…
Number 7 is an old, traditional favourite, the Christmas stocking. Incredibly simple to make and perfect for accommodating a festive tangerine if you have been nice, or lump of coal, if you are on the naughty list!
Number 6 is for all you keen sewers out there…decorative appliqué. By cutting up, arranging and stitching contrasting fabric pieces, you can create a unique and magical art piece. Once framed this could make the perfect gift!
Number 5 is another traditional favourite, patchwork! Perfect for practicing your hand stitching skills, and a pleasant past time to do with your loved ones during the festive season! They make a lovely handmade gift that someone can treasure forever!
At number 4 we have everybody’s favourite, bunting! Why not create some festive bunting to adorn your home this Christmas!
Number 3 is gift tags and bows for presents! Why not create your own customised wrapping decorations to give your gifts a personal touch!
In second place we have Christmas angels! Make them from whatever recycled materials you can find and use fabric remnants to create attractive little outfits and wings for your angel!
Our number 1 winner is the Christmas wreath! A wonderful and beautiful tradition, you can be as expressive and creative as you wish!
This glorious example was made using one of our Christmas Fabric Craft Packs by our creative textile designer Gemma. We hope that you feel inspired to start creating, and we wish you a wonderful festive period!
