I’ve learnt the hard way – set a time and set it early for Christmas crafts, otherwise days will fly past and time will be eaten by nothing. My time is Saturday afternoons: A week to plan and gather bits, an open fire, a family film = perfection.
This Saturday we started with interpreting and making these, found on Pinterest, and as ever, it was a learning curve. We used Inkjet printable Iron on T-shirt Fabric paper for light fabrics bought from Amazon for £11.99. Whilst it does work, the material you use is critical – we had to change from a coarser cotton to a smoother version. Also a simple thing, but important – you need to cut out all the background and leave a white margin – it does something important to the eye.
This, for me, is the spirit of Christmas. Pour me a large one.
