Christmas tree appliques : tutorial and video

Tuto sapin de Noël en crochet

Ok, I have to admit I’m probably the best at doing things at the last minute :D But hey, better late than never, right? So, 2 days ago, I started to make some Christmas cards. I really liked how they came out and thought that I could make a tutorial for those little crochet trees. So, yesterday, I started to to do that, and thought that a video would be even more handy… Then, I thought that it would be the good time to challenge myself and record myselft on this video (oh my, why?). So, here I am, 5 days before Christmas, doing all those things that weren’t planned at all (and procrastinating all the other things, that were actually planned :D)

  1. This is such a cute idea. Thanks for taking the time to share this with us. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  2. LOve the tree. Thank you for the pattern. If I have time, I want to make them for name tags to put on the table for Christmas dinner.

  3. I rarely crochet, yet I can’t stop reading these patterns! I’m showing this to my kids to see if they get bit by the crafting bug.

    Merry Christmas!
