The Advent wreath is essential for the advent and christmas times. Of course we have a traditional wreath with 4 candles on the table. On the house door we have a wreath made of fir. In the garden the wreath are „enriched“ with bird seed.
Since yesterday we have another one. This one is just: beautiful. And with these fabrics it is really easy. It is Moda fabric.
When I stayed in Stoffekontor for my V7 course I used the time between the lessons to grub around in the wide and dream-like fabric shop. I love this! Since a while Stoffekontor is offering Moda-Precuts as well. And in a broad selection so it is hard to chose from.
So I put a colorful seelction into my basket.
After finishing my selections I had 35 pieces of 5×5″ (12.5×12.5cm) each in front of me.
This is the blank wreath I used. I got it on a Patchworking fair in Erding near Munich earlier this year.
From the fabric squares I sewed such pillows with a small opening on the back side.
The pillow I stuffed with batting. Leave the opening open.
Tie the pillows to the wreath with bast. This hides the openings.
Maybe you attach a bell to some of the pillows.
What a wreath.
The wreath was easy to make. Sure I will do another one, maybe with the spring-colored dotted fabrics for the time after christmas.
Enjoy the 2nd advent week.
