More Christmas Presents

Little appliquéd felt and cloth ornaments...

Quilted Table Runner 
I made this for my daughter and gave it to her at Thanksgiving. She created the fun centerpiece out of colored paper, a marker, and a pineapple.

Christmas Tree Coasters
These are made following Tree Trivet Tutorial over at Stitching and Bacon.
It was the Christmas in July Challenge ~ July 10, 2013 post
I modified the pattern leaving out the hangers, but otherwise I tried to follow it as closely as possible. It is a wonderful tutorial.

Fronts of Quilted Christmas Tree Coasters
I have the pattern and the link to the tutorial if anyone would want it.

Here are some extras that I am finishing up now. They need batting in the centers and a backing fabric.

Wooden Tag Banner 
The wooden tags came from an old timey Ben Franklin store in Fayetteville, WV.  The backs had seals on them saying where they were made and a bunch of other stuff so I got hot water and removed them. Then I took Christmas cupcake papers from the dollar bins at Michaels and glued them to the backs. I used green wired twine and then green wired ribbon to tie them together. I covered clothespins with Christmas paper and used them to hold the twine to the ribbon. The final thing was to take a glue gun to be sure the ties were secure on the backs and glued little holly thingies on the holes. 

Cork Garland ~ 1
Twine, bells, colored plastic beads and some wooden ones from Michaels, old corks, eye screws that go into each end of the corks, a glue gun to affix the beads and the bells so they don’t move, and ribbon for the ties on the ends. Easy Peasy!

Hope you can see the little eye screws.

Cork Garland~ 2
I made this one for my son, Gene. I used larger wooden balls/beads for it.

Tied Christmas Wreath
I used Williamsburg replica cotton prints. All the edges are pinked. The form is from a roll of some kind of Large bendable wire from Lowe’s.
