What materials did you use? Cotton fabric, metallic fabrics, sequins, beads, braid, thin cotton wadding, buttons etc.

What are you most proud of? Being able to give something original and unique to my best friends and my family that they can keep from year to year (if they want to). It's difficult to know when to stop when embellishing with beads, sequins, braid etc, and I have to try not to go over the top, although I don't really suppose it would matter much if I did "gild the lily" too much - they are festive decorations, after all! I was particularly pleased to find some ribbon in a cake decoration shop with "Merry Christmas" printed on it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Let your imagination run riot. I intend to abandon Christmas trees now, and go on to to make other pictures - perhaps snowmen, bells, candles - there's no limit to what can be done. After last Christmas a friend's son loved the Christmas one I made for his Mum and asked me to make one of these little quilts with an owl on it - a photo of it is among my projects.

What a great idea. Many thanks for sharing. I think I will try this for next Christmas. Can you believe I am already planning for next year.

They're very easy and quick to make - and you can embellish them as much (or as little) as you like. Having said that, I haven't found the time to do much more this year, so will start a lot earlier next year. I blame the BOM course!

Lovely! A great idea. Much better then the boring postcards or mails

Thank you - they are such fun to do! I didn't get around to making any new ones last Christmas (2012) but I intend to make lots for Christmas this year. It's a long way off, so I will have no excuse for not starting early!
