Ragtime Christmas Wreath - Christmas Tutorial No.10 By Ros Coffey of RosMadeMe Blog

I'm a pack rat when it comes to my fabric and fabric scraps. I really should throw some of the fabric out, but I just can't bring myself to do it. Well, now I don't have to as Ros Coffey has a wonderful tutorial on her RosMadeMe Blog blog showing you how to make a Christmas wreath from rags. I may just have to make a few - well, maybe a lot. I do have a lot of fabric scraps!

Ragtime Christmas Wreath - Christmas Tutorial no.10

Here's what Ros had to say about her tutorial:  Right, from the get go I am going to tell you this is not what I had planned for this weekend but I went on a trip to Hobbycraft looking for a flower loom but could not find one. However, I did find a polystyrene wreath which I had been after for a while because I wanted to make a slightly different sort of rag wreath this year. I think that this might be a great hit with the children over half term if you do the fabric cutting in advance and it looks equally good on your front door or hung inside to match your colour scheme. The other great thing is that this wreath can be used for a number of years and by carefully storing the fabrics you can recycle it throughout the year - which means you will be green without an ounce of greenery!

Ros's Bio:I live by the sea, in Essex, in Leigh-on-sea. I have been making things since I was a child, earliest memories were embroidering squares of binca matting, making felt egg cups and ripping back my knitting when my sister had picked up a dropped stitch... yep, it really did have to be all my own work! I am a dreadful hoarder, with stashes of wool and fabric hidden around my house, together with the projects that I have not yet finished. I am currently making cushions, quilted, appliqued, stencilled... actually just anything that I will enjoy crafting.
