No-sew Christmas Decorations using your favorite fabrics

No-sew Christmas Decorations using your favorite fabrics

As the holidays speed toward us full-throttle, I’ve been thinking about new craft projects to make with my 4 kids.  We’ve tried all the standards…. popcorn garland, oranges stuffed with cloves, triangle buntings and handprint paper wreaths.

When Fabri-Quilt contacted me last month and asked if I would take a look at some of their new lines of holiday fabric to develop a new tutorial, it made me think it was the perfect opportunity to try a new no-sew craft with the kids.

You don’t have to be a child-psychologist to know that children love projects that are colorful, tactile, forgiving, and quick.  This craft hits the mark on all four counts.

If you’d like to see the tutorial for the no-sew Christmas decorations shown above, click over to the Inspired by Fabric blog (a site dedicated to projects to go along with Fabri-Quilt collections).

Fabri-Quilt sent me the pre-released fabric I was most inspired by, and I tried out the simple new project last week to see how it would go with little ones.

I had so much fun perusing all of their fun Christmas fabrics. 

My favorite holiday line, hands down, is the Season’s Greetings collection at Fabri-Quilt.  The have gorgeous bright whites, with glimmers of silver.

And they have the most beautiful red with gold snowflakes.

These are classic designs that would be perfect for table runners, wall hangings, stockings and tree skirts.

I also adore the white and blue fabrics together.  Blues, whites and silvers are close to my heart during the holiday season. My husband is Jewish and I am Catholic, so we have a joyful mix of cultures and colors in our home during the holidays. (12)
