Christmas Tree Hanger by Tracey Fairgrieve


Hello Crafty Friends.
Not long to wait till Christmas... Yayyyy!!

Today I'm sharing a little make which has been hanging around (literally) since I first got hold of this That's Crafty! stamp set designed by Donna Gray way back in August!

An opportunity for me to test out the Multi Surface Paints and put them to the fabric test watered down and hand washed, yes I think we can clearly say they can be used on fabric.

Additional detail has been added by following those 
stamped out lines with some machine stitching.

Sewn and filled with fire retardant wadding flat back gemstones 
were attached with strong adhesive but can also be hot fixed.

This is the stage it had been left in. How the weather has changed since August!

I think it knew there was new That's Crafty! Multi Surface Paints on the horizon..!
How they shimmer and shine watered down with the Sparklers sprays.

and looking super (even if I say so myself) frayed around 
the edges and now hung on my Christmas Tree.

Although this was sewn on a machine, it can just as easily be hand stitched.

This is my last Thursday That's Crafty! post of 2017 and would like to take the 
opportunity to Thank you ALL for your support over the past few months. 

Wishing you all a Magical Christmas and warm wishes on this *Winter Solstice*

I look forward to sharing my Thursday's with you all in 2018

Warmest of Hugs

    1. Thanks fliss, I have to make the most of my sewing machine when it's out as I never know when I will have the room to get it out again sadly. Not had the time to do much hand sewing this year sadly xx

  4. The paint works beautifully on the fabric and I love the frayed edges, it gives a 'new' decoration a vintage feel. I love it!
