O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!

My friend and I met for coffee yesterday and she suggested popping into a fabric shop beforehand. "I just need a bit of black cotton" she said. Turns out it's not possible to just go in there for a bit of black cotton. She bought 3 different fabrics (including the black thank goodness) and I bought this lovely stripey one. And there was me thinking I didn't need any fabric... Roll Eyes





It's amazing what a twig, some fabric and a spool can turn into. And some tape measure of course... Cheesy

Lovely!  Great use of the "25" on the measuring tape!

You are awesome.  The end Cheesy

Well, not the end, I love the '25' tape, and the fringy bottom to your tree, I have the same problem with fabric stores, you've totally inspired me, and I'm going to make some tree decorations now!

Thank you so much! The 25 was such a happy fluke, it was literally the next part I was cutting up from the tape measure. It was meant to be!

I definitely think she's a bad influence on me, I should have waited outside Cheesy
