Christmas Rag Wreath

Posted on October 26, 2017 by Rae | 1 comment

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.

    SOOOO PRETTY! AND IT LOOKS QUITE EASY (BUT PERHAPS TIME CONSUMING – HOWEVER, THATS O.K., WE COULD ALL USE A LITTLE “RELAX TIME”. MANY THANKS FOR SHARING SUCH A LOVELY PROJECT.
