One of the things I am finding out as I am making fabric Christmas decorations is how great they are for using up scraps! I actually haven’t needed to buy fabric or anything else to make any of these, I’ve used stuff I already had, fabric, ribbon and buttons. The Patchwork Star, the little gingham heart and these other decorations can be made from scraps to small to be much use for anything else.
This tutorial is great for using up scraps of felt! They are very easy to make, crafty minded children could even make them and it’s another use for those Christmas cookie cutters!

6. For hanging your decoration either make a loop with a piece of embroidery thread, or sew a ribbon loop to the top.
