These two adorable Christmas Trees are now ready to be given away. Although I really don't want to part with either of them. They are so cute. Neither tree is made by me. They were both bought in after Christmas sales. I couldn't just give them as is. They both of have lots of little pieces that could be easily lost. So my Christmas in Progress project for MARCH was to find someway to store all the bits.
First up a wooden advent calendar.
The decorations sit in the little box at the base of the tree. The base detaches for storage in the "off" season.
The blue bag holds the base, the white bag holds all the decorations.
And they are all stored inside the striped bag. It also now has an embroided patch on the front that says "A Christmas Tree for XXXXXX from Rachael and Dave, 2007"
MMM I just realised looking at the photo, that the quilting only goes one way. Ooops. Oh well. It still looks okay.
Secondly a red sparkly, glittery tree. How hard is it going to be to part with this?
It also pulls apart for storage.
I made one bag for all the little pieces and one big bag to store the lot in.
Again this bag also has a patch on the front that says "A Christmas Tree for XXXX from Rachael and Dave, 2007".
Nothing fancy. Just drawstring bags. Now I'm thinking, I should have made mini zippered totes with an inside zippered pocket for the smaller pieces.
