What materials did you use? Gold and metallic fabrics, cotton fabrics, gold and cotton threads, very thin polyester wadding (batting), buttons, ribbons.

What are you most proud of? I was happy with the way they made up quickly and gave me a great sense of satisfaction. It was a bit difficult to get them to hang evenly, but with a bit of twisting and pulling, they eventually looked okay.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Let your imagination run riot - trees, candles, presents, bells - anything you fancy!

yes i had a look at "What A Hoot" too. I didnt know what to do when my first wall hanging was completed and hanged it on a clothes hanger until another crafter suggested i should hang it properly. i now know how to make a housing (i think thats what they call it) but still unsure how to hang it with ribbon as u did...well...i m learning new things all the time..thanks :)

Well done, ZaZa - we call them "hanging sleeves" and at the quilting store where I learnt my quilting they recommend that you put one on all your quilts, however big they are, so that they can be exhibited at shows.

Hello there Pat - I love these little guys - where I am staying they have a little craft store for the retired folk to purchase little christmas items. Might just have to sew some up and take them over to sell. The places we stay in while in the heat of the USA are pretty small - so there is not a wall space. They'd also make nice gifts.

Yes - you're right - they'd make nice little things to sell in that shop and they're quick and easy to make. I've also some pictures of others that I've made to give as Christmas cards that the recipient can keep from year to year as a decoration. Patricia

Thank you - I'm just off to look!

I've looked! Yes - they're similar, but quite a bit smaller. I particularly liked the one with the three trees and the one with the stars - very pretty! All ideas for next year (I'll have to start in June, I think!)

Incidentally, I hadn't heard of Pat Sloan before - an interesting website, and I shall look at it some more. Thank you for the link.
