Christmas Keepsakes: Step-by-Step

by Shabby Fabrics | April 30, 2015

As you may know, Christmas Keepsakes is a Shabby Fabrics exclusive Block of the Month wall hanging that features festive applique blocks and inviting, Christmas-y colors! 

We are offering this block of the month in a traditional applique option as well as a pre-fused, laser-cut option. This program is 10 months long and has already begun but luckily it isn't too late to join and we are also offering full kits in both traditional applique and pre-fused laser-cut applique. The kits include the Christmas Keepsakes Book, all top fabrics, borders, binding, backing, embroidery floss, and embellishments.

The traditional applique technique can be a little bit tricky at times but with a little bit of guidance and some tips along the way, anybody can master this skill! Jen has a series of videos showing all of the ins and outs of how to create each block of this beautiful wall hanging. By the time you make it through half of the blocks you will have all of the skills you need to complete this Winter-time project and will have a gorgeous addition to your holiday home decor! Without further ado here are the instructional videos-
