Fabric Wreath

Although fabric wreaths are not a new concept, this was my first effort to make one. It was an easy activity done sitting in the middle of my bed early one morning in the middle of December when waking too early and not able to get back to sleep due to a case of the worries.

The friendly ladies at the quilting store near me, The Sewing Center Around the Block, showed me how to make the wreath, but you can find a free tutorial using a similar technique at Moda Bake Shop.

This is an indoor wreath, so I hung it on our bedroom door to welcome my husband for the holidays. Isn’t that what every man wants to be greeted with when arriving home after not seeing his wife for awhile? No? Well, silly me.

Other than actual sleeping, there is nothing as fine as a bit of simple crafting before dawn. Okay, I can think of one other activity, but maybe we ought not to discuss that.
  • Moda Fabrics’ Lumiere De Noel by French General Jelly Roll: The Sewing Center Around the Block
  • 12'' wire, 4-ring wreath frame: purchased at JoAnn’s but available at most craft stores
  • Pinking shears: from my sewing box

Have you met the son-in-law Bobby? he knows every single person that walks in the store. That store is wonderful :) I am probably going sometime this week to browse the gorgeous fabric.

The wreath is lovely and I especially love the colors you used.

Glad to have you back. I think it will be healthy for you'

Too, too cute! I suspect there will be a lot of fabric wreathing going on soon! I can see them in Valenine's fabrics, St. Paddy's Day, Easter, or 4 of the July fabric...well, you get the idea! Or maybe just the four seasons! They'd all be darling!

Now Junie -- you mustn't be to shy to discuss those pre-dawn walks on the beach with a full moon. You know there's nothing quite like them. ;-)

{Cute wreath btw.}

June I can't imagine what you are going through right now {{{ hugs}}} but I'm glad you are still crafting so beautifully! I liked how Moda calls it's instruction web site a "bakeshop"! :D
