How to make a knitted Christmas Tree card!
1. Hot wash a greenish jumper to create felt or just cut up a greenish jumper - ask first if it is not yours! As long as you glue it pretty much straight away it won't unravel.
This triangle measures 7 cm across the base x 8.5 x 8.5 cm sides.
2. Stitch on coloured buttons as baubles. This could be glued unstead of stitched I guess!
3. Add silver thread tinsel in long zig-zag stitches.
4. Glue tree to the front of the card.
5.Cut out a bucket for the base -I recycle old wrapping paper/cards/music/wall paper for this. Glue in place.
6.Glue a star button or sticker star on the top of your tree.
note: I covered the card with commercial white felt as the background.
Writing Christmas cards in on my Christmas to-do list today. First I have to make them!
But the sun is shining! The park beckons! The "really, really big park" and the museum - even though the kids say "but the animals there are all dead"! Picnic in the park first - Christmas cards later!!!
