Old Quilt Pieces Christmas Trees

kudzukweenNovember 14, 2008

My sister bought these cut up quilt pieces at a yard sale. I made some into Christmas Tree shapes and added vintage rick rack, and buttons and a wooden spool.

Kudzu, you are just a crafting diva these days! I just went over to read more on your blog, you sure sound like you are having fun with all your projects. I loved the little snowmen, and I liked how your hat looked on it. These little trees are cute, will they go on your tree or as package tie ons? TFS Luvs

Thanks Luvs! Glad you liked them :D The trees are sitting together on my reproduction radio, but they'd make cute tie ons or ornaments. If I made more for tie-ons, I probably would just have the single quilt layer, or the back layer would be plain muslin. I'd like to find something for a star.

You could use a star shaped buttons. I have seen some really small ones or the little teeny wooden star that you paint. Where did you get pattern for tree? I really like the shape of it.

Thanks ya'll! I made the pattern, the quilt pieces were cut into heart shapes when my sister bought them for me, so I just made a tree pattern from that. I was thinking of star shaped buttons, but I didn't have any. I could go buy some:D I have some heart shaped beads, pink or blue, but I didn't like them. I want to make angels from the hearts,too. I have a collection of doilies and hankies, and wings I bought at a yard sale. My scanner/printer broke down,I'll offer it free on my blog as soon as I'm able.
