How to Make a Stuffed Buche de Noel (Part 1)comments (12) December 25th, 2010
Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love the decorations, the food, the music . . . seriously I love the music, I own, like, 60 different Christmas albums (I know, it's a sickness). Anyway, back to the topic at hand—the decorations and the food, I love 'em! This project combines both into a fun stuffed centerpiece that will last you years and years.
Don't miss part 2 of this project where we embellish the log with mushrooms and holly berries.
What You'll need:
• Wool felt (You can find felt by the yard at most fabric stores. I'll be using the names of National Nonwoven's felt line since it's the brand I've found in most stores.)
1/3 yard of Oakwood (Dark Copper Brown)
1/3 yard of Chocolate (Dark Brown)
1/4 yard of Oatmeal (Light Heathered Brown)
• 2 to 4 skeins of brown embroidery floss (I used DMC 838)
• Size 20 or 21 chenille hand needle
• Rotary cutting tool
• Self-healing cutting mat
• Fabric glue
• Embroidery needle (optional)
• Sewing machine (optional)
• Quilt batting (optional)
Make your log:
Cut two pieces of the Oakwood felt: one 12 inches by 18 inches for the body of the log and one 10-1/4 inches by 4 inches for the stump.
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
