Christmas Rag Wreath

Posted on October 26, 2017 by Rae | 2 comments

At Sew Saturday last weekend we were lucky enough to have the lovely Alex of Alex and the Machine in the studio giving a demo of her gorgeous Christmas Rag Wreath.  

 

It was such a great addition to the day and everyone who had a go thoroughly enjoyed the satisfaction you get when stabbing the fabric into the polystyrene wreath! 

 

 

Alex used a 25cm polystyrene wreath and a mixture of green and red patterned fabrics - about 1 metre's worth - cut it into 2 inch squares with pinking shears, folded the fabric in half then in half again (right side in) and used a crochet hook (or a pair of scissors) to push the fabric deep into the wreath. The resulting wreath was absolutely stunning!  

Here's another one that Alex has made with a little ribbon tied to the top ....

 

 

It really is that simple to make!  We've tracked down a lovely tutorial from Debbie Shore here that you can watch if you want a bit more of an in depth look at how to make one of these yourself.  Debbie uses glue which adds to the robustness of the wreath and is definitely a good option if it's going to be hung somewhere where it may get pulled at! You can find the tutorial here.

    Bitcoin Makes People Rich And You Can Be The Next

    I finally know what it’s like to live your dream.
    I no longer feel like I’m outside while everyone else is having fun.

    The Bitcoin Profit allowed me to retire early and live a lifestyle that the 1% of the richest live.

    You can actually help people by doing fundraising for your worthy cause. The non-profit is tax-deductible so you don’t owe anything to Uncle Sam come April.
    Universal Credit will then be paid on the same date each month. Your normal pay day will be fixed at seven days after the end of your assessment period.
    To earn money by Captcha typing jobs you need to join some Captcha solving job sites which pay you to solve Captchas.
    Anyways, let’s look into these in more detail…
    b) My pages of content that I wrote could be about almost anything, for example a list of things I had to that day or the next day, what I was planning on buying at the shop that afternoon, a story of how my dog came to be frightened of swimming, some fond memory from my childhood, or the funny thing that an animal did at the zoo while we were visiting the zoo. Basically, whatever! Much like writing an email to a friend telling them about something or other or giving them some of your news. Or another way to look at it is that it could almost be like a Facebook status update, but of at least 100 words.
