Santa’s Christmas Cheer Wall Hanging

Santa’s Christmas Cheer Wall Hanging

Christmas is just around the corner and the delightful, Santa’s Christmas Cheer Wall Hanging is perfect for a last-minute project. Although the pattern is for a wall hanging, it could also make a fun cushion and would fit an 18-inch (45 cm) cushion insert.

Applique

Fusible webbing is used for the applique and a light box is ideal for tracing the pattern. However, if you don’t have a light box, simply tape the pattern over a window and use the natural daylight.

The small pieces for the applique can be gathered from your stash. Use your imagination to see how you could fussy-cut the small pieces from other larger pieces of fabric. This is the fun part!

Fuse and Stitch

Once the pieces are fused onto the background, finish with a blanket stitch, either by hand or by machine.

Borders

It doesn’t take long to add the borders and to scatter a few extra stars. Because it’s a such a small project, it’s quick to baste and to quilt. Again, do this by hand or machine; depending on your quilting preference.

The pattern for Santa’s Christmas Cheer has step-by-step instructions. It’s ready to download and print, so you can make this little treasure just in time for Christmas.
