Christmas Wall Hanging Ho Ho Ho

Please read through all the instructions before starting your project Finished size: 15 ¾” x 9 ¾”


• FQ pack of Craft Cotton novelty Christmas prints

• FQ white plain dyed poly cotton fabric

• 16” x 10” piece of heritage premium wadding

• Gutermann white thread 1001 and silver metallic thread 7009

• 12” ‘Deck the halls’ christmas ribbon from Groves

• 12” x 5” piece on Vlieseline Bondaweb

Haberdashery items • Iron-away marker pen • Quilters ruler, rotary cutter/scissors • Iron • Cutting mat • Basic sewing supplies • **‘HO HO HO’ Templates • 505 basting spray or pins ** To create your template, write ‘H H H’ in capital letters in ‘word doc’. Font: Copper Black Size: 200 The ‘O’’s are created by drawing around a 2 ¾” diameter circle and the snow globe stands, and 1 ½” x ¾” block, narrowing towards to the top

Making the wall hanging Begin by cutting all the pieces of fabric: Penguins on red 15 ¾” x 9 ¾” Trees on cream 15 ¾” x 9 ¾” White 9” x 3” Snowflakes on blue 12” x 4” White 56” x 1 ¼” (join strips at right angles to create the length for the binding) Extra piece of penguin on reds, to fussy cut three animals.

Let’s Begin… Print off the templates Reverse the letters from the template by turning the paper faced down and drawing over the letters – holding the paper up to the window can help. Trace the reverse of the letters onto the Bondaweb, fuse to the white fabric and carefully cut out. Trace around the circles onto Bondaweb, fuse to the blue fabric and cut out. Draw around the snow globe bases onto Bondaweb, cut out and fuse to ‘trees on cream’ fabric on the cream pieces only

Peel the backing paper off and fuse with a dry heat to red fabric, tuck 1/8” of the base under the circle. See photo below for placement

Roughly cut around three of your chosen animals, fuse to Bondaweb, and carefully cut out, fuse to the centre of the blue circles

Baste the wadding between the top and backing quilt. Swap out your machine foot for a FMQ foot, and thread up the silver metallic thread. Sew 1/8” from raw edge around each applique, including the animals in the snow globe

Pin the ribbon 5 ½” in from each top corner (the ribbon should lay RST towards the quilt) Trim and add the binding strips all the way around to the front of the quilt, trim away any excess. Press ¼” of the raw edge over, pin and hand sew to the reverse, create neat corners as you sew

Your wall hanging is complete…
