    Apologies not just for the music but for the wobbly video! This was one of

    I love this video thanks for the inspiration.

  • Robin Luther says:

    Hi Debbie – what kind of glue did you use?! There are a couple of
    craft-type white glues that dry clear that I’ve used before (Tacky Glue,
    Elmer’s White Glue – US brands) but I’ve never seen a white glue that held
    as well as what you used on the heart trim. 

  • Joy Griffiths says:

    This is lovely. Simple and great for someone not a bit organised 🙂
    Thank you for the idea and for your easy to follow instructions. I will
    definitely be making these.

    Hallo an alle Bastel- und Nähwütigen…
    Das nächste Weihnachtsfest naht mit großen Schritten.
    Hier hab ich was entdeckt, dass Euch bestimmt auch gefällt.
    Super einfach und sehr dekorativ.
    Viel Spaß

  • jammymum says:

    t’ll be great if you could re-do the vid, the tree’s an excellent idea;
    because I know you do make fab things, I continued to watch it all the way
    through. What I especially love in this one is that you’ve made a mistake,
    were honest enough to share it… but showed us how to get away with it!
    Haha! Love that! So thank you xx

  • Loretta Heim says:

    love the pattern,but the music is very distracting 

  • Susan Regan says:

    Love your tutorials Debbie and have found them excellent for using up my
    stash of fabric scraps. thank you so much Soosy x

  • Aimee Scanlon says:

    That is just stunning Debbie

  • Ellen Helms says:

    This is wonderful, thank you!! Such a quick way to make a table-top tree!
    and I wouldn’t have thought to use a small pot for the base. I actually
    enjoy the background music :-)

  • Cathy Burton says:

    I’m a complete beginner and I think your videos are very helpful. And I
    like the background music :)

  • maria teresa herrera says:

    yo corte un molde ¡¡¡ me quedo hermoso ¡¡¡¡ gracias , me encanta todo lo

  • Heather B says:

    i agree with the lady that said about not having background music otherwise
    this is fabulous, and thank you!

  • Corry Dijkman says:

    Ik vind het jammer dat de taal niet nederlands is.

  • Mo M says:

    Thank you for this Debbie, I enjoy all of your videos, so well done! my
    own wee personal opinion on craft ‘how-to’s is to do them ‘sans’ music as,
    music is such a personal thing, we love it or hate it or just get annoyed
    if it is not to our taste.

  • Deanne Jollota says:

    cloth christmas tree

  • verrado says:

    Yes, the music is distracting, just hearing your quite lovely voice is so
    wonderful! Thanks for the video, and your laid back way to teaching!
