Welcome to our first Guest Holiday Gift Tutorial!
Every Monday through December
I'm thrilled that Megan and Heather asked me to participate in their Holiday Gift Tutorials series. In my opinion, there is nothing better than a handmade gift for the holidays. So today, I thought I would share this festive table topper tutorial. It's the perfect little project for using up scraps and it's sure to dress up any home during the holidays!
Finished size: 20" x 26"Here's what you'll need: (20) 2-1/2" x 4" scraps of assorted green fabrics (15) 1-1/2" squares of assorted red fabrics for berries 1/3 yd. beige fabric for background 1/4 yd. red fabric for sashing 6 yds. green 5/8" wide ric rac 3/8 yd. red fabric for bias binding 2/3 yd. backing 3/8 yd. light weight fusible web (17" wide) such as Heat n Bond batting, 24" x 30" Let's get started! First you will need to trace THIS leaf template (20 times) and a U.S. nickle (15 times) onto the paper side of fusible web. Roughly cut out each shape. Iron (paper side up) to the wrong side of the appropriate colored fabric scraps. Cut out each shape on the traced line (leaving the paper on at this point).
**Don't mind this picture, it was taken before all the leaves and berries were adhered and before the ric rac was sewn on - but it shows you the layout of the strips :)
