The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 268 - A family tree

Today I made a family tree for my Mum for Christmas.

First I printed out all of the photos of her grandchildren (6) onto printable fabric.

I made a little bunting by cutting up some of an old doily.

And I found a tree branch out in the bush. I may change it later if I find something I like more.

I sewed little pockets with each face using felt at the back and put a little stuffing inside before sewing it closed. I then put some stones inside a tin to hold up the tree and covered the tin with fabric.


  1. Wow, that's such a great idea! Your mum is going to love it.
