Fabric Tussie Mussie

Hi friends!  Just a little more than a week to go before Christmas.  Are you ready?  I know I will be making things right up to the big day!  I never allow enough time.  On the brighter side, we had three small snowstorms this past week which made me very happy.  However, a warmup is expected this coming week which makes me not so happy!

Today, I am sharing a fabric tussie mussie.  It came together quite easily and quickly.  These make wonderful gifts or decorations especially for the holidays.  I began with a potholder that I covered in a lacy fabric and then rolled into a cone shape.  No sewing required--I used Fabric Tac glue.  After I had the cone shape, I simply began covering it with various trims and appliques.  Here are some photos.

These can be filled with whatever you choose.  I elected to fill this one with some floral pieces from Michael's.

I apologize for the poor photo quality.  The lighting was bad the day I finished and I wanted to get it in the mail the same day. 

Well, that's it for me today.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I appreciate all your kind comments.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend.  I will be back on Wednesday with a post for Secret Garden Crafts.
