Stitched Fabric Trees Christmas Cards

Little triangle bits of fabric leftover from the microwave bowl cozys I completed last year were transformed into trees for a few Christmas cards. I tried to machine stitch along the edges, but the pieces were so small, it was nearly impossible so I ended up hand stitching. I had planned on making several of these cards, but in the end decided hand stitching was going to take too long for the number I needed in a short amount of time. Perhaps I'll work on some throughout the coming year for next Christmas - I have dozens of triangle fabric pieces to repurpose into something!

I'm entering my stitched fabric tree cards into the Homespun Challenge at Less Is More. I love the theme of this challenge and if time permits, will whip up another card for it.

Thanks for looking and Happy Holidays !


  1. Heather what a super way to use your scraps and perfect for our theme!
    I don't always worry about stitching fabric on cards, just adhere it with sticky pads.
    Thank you for joining our last challenge of the year and wishing you a very happy new year.
