The crafting skills of the Alice Caroline team have been working hard to make these Beautiful Christmas Decorations. Of course they all have some kind of Liberty fabric connection with some using sewing and others simply glueing or stuffing.
The baubles in the picture above, that Louise has made, will be featured in the 12 days of Christmas blog post tomorrow.
Ruth from the studio has made this pretty EPP (English Paper Pieced) decoration below using Wiltshire Glitter. Ruth said “The design of my bauble is a variation on a Russian Ball ornament (from the Fabric Art DIY website). I used a 9 x 13” scrap of Wiltshire Glitter F for the outer fabric and Liberty Tana Lawn® Plain Poppy Red for the contrasting lining. The Wiltshire Glitter just screamed Christmas to me and glitter fabrics aren’t very common.
It’s made from 10 circles of fabric machined together. I used Hexiform 2″ circles inside the fabric from Ashmead designs that Kathy recommended. These are pre cut and gives the finished bauble a bit more structure. I machined the circles together and then hand sewed the triangles together to create the 3D finish. The last circle was a little tricky but overall the project was fun to make. I learnt how to use Hexiforms which was interesting. I added ribbon, sequins and a bell to give it a more Christmassy feel.”

Debbie has made this cute square decoration below. Debbie says: “This was an accidental find on Pinterest. I thought it looked like an ideal project to make with children – it took around 5 minutes to make was really easy but is super effective. I used My Little Star W for the outer part and Peppermint R for the inner contrast colour. If I made this again I would add interfacing or wadding to make it stiffer and to create a more puffy look to the decoration. On its own it makes a great tree decoration but you could make lots of them to make festive bunting.”
Thank you for sharing your festive decorations with us Ruth, Louise and Debbie. I am loving how into the spirit of Christmas everyone at team AC is getting.
