So, I've been accused of being "boy crazy", so I thought I'd talk about something besides sexy fictional characters in this post. But before I dive into crafty talk, we saw Juno last night and it was fabulous... and there were no sexy boys in it. :-)
This season, blogland was covered with these scrap wreaths. I loved them so much, I made three in one evening. The above wreath is not so much a Christmas wreath as it is a winter wreath, but I did put it away with the Christmas stuff. I think I'll get it back out. I'm loving the woodland creatures lately.
I found the deer template in the back of my holiday issue of Martha Stewart. I just traced them out of the magazine, but I am sure the templates are somewhere on her site. I just used fusible webbing to adhere the deer to the tree fabric. I stuffed a little batting behind that and then sewed it to the wool felt. Tied to the wreath with simple jute and Viola!
Not bad, eh? I've almost used up the 50+ yards of vintage brown rickrack that I bought almost 10 years ago when I worked at Piece Goods. I'm hoarding the last few feet of it.
