Aimee here and today I bring you a simple sewing project with all the directions you need to make a simple wall hanging, with just a little bling, just in time for the holidays!
Along with some basic sewing knowledge and access to a sewing machine, here’s what you will need:
- 28 Lilac Lane “Holly Jolly” embellishment kit
- two 8×9 sheets of felt (I chose red for the front and green for the backing)
- a small scrap of clear vinyl
- 1/8″ wide white ric rac (or other thin ribbon)
- roughly 6 inches of ribbon for hanging
For the ornament:
Cut out your vinyl by using a round object about the size you desire as a pattern. Cut it out and making sure to leave a hole in the top, sew it down with your sewing machine using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Using the sequins, beads and heart buttons from the Holly Jolly set, fill the ornament, then sew up the hole with your sewing machine.
Cut out a small rectangular piece for the ornament top and sew this down with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Cut a length of ric rac and use a zig zag stitch to sew down the ric rac (or ribbon) for the ornament hanger.
Lay the ornament and a plain backing piece of felt together. Cut out about 6 inches of a coordinating ribbon, fold in half and place in between the layers. Pin the layers together and sew with a 1/4 in seam allowance around all four sides; making sure to sew in the ribbon for hanging.
