Blue Baubles

The first batch of my blue Christmas baubles is pinned to the design board, more to follow. A great way to use up all those small scraps of batting left over from other projects.


The following ‘making of’ shots are from a half finished project. – First I need a cardboard circle, a piece of scrap batting the same size as the circle plus two circles of fabric, cut with about 1 cm  seam allowance.


Next step: pin cardboard circle onto fabric, baste around the seam allowance and pull tight to gather, press from left side.


Remove basting and cardboard circle, insert batting


Pin both circles, left sides together, and sew together around edge (I whipstiched them)

  1. It’s going to look gorgeous. Can I offer a suggestion? If you use a second, smaller circle of batting on either side of the main circle, it will make your baubles plumper and rounder – if you want that, of course.
