These hanging thingies are so quick to make
you can make a couple in no time and have
them ready as Christmas gifts .
Supplies needed -
8" square of 2 fabrics .
8"square of thin wadding
8" fat ric rac ,8" pom pom trim
matching ribbon or ric rac for hanging
Stitch the fat ric rac about 1/2" from edge on outer fabric
on two sides only .
Place your thin wadding down , lay the outer fabric
on top with the right side up .
Secure the pom pom trim along the outer fabric
on the same edges as the ric rac .
Lay the inner fabric on top with the right side
facing down .
Stitch through all layers using a 1/4 " seam allowance
and leaving a gap for turning .
Turn through gap and check that all
layers have been stitched and pom pom trim is secure .
Turn inside out and trim corners .
Turn right side out again and press .
Fold in half with the ric rac on the inside
to form a triangle .
Stitch from bottom point to top , clip bottom point .
Pretty up the front (and disguise where the ric rac may
not quite meet ) with a crochet circle and covered button .
Stitch some ric rac to the high point at the back for hanging .
I also added a white paper doily .
My hanging thingies were filled with mint
flavoured chocolates wrapped in cellophane
and tied with fabric scraps .
I'd love to see what fabrics you make yours in ,
please let me know so I can come and have a look .
