2019 Sizzix Tim Holtz Christmas- Layered Pine

It feels like quite some time ago that Sizzix released their Chapter 3 holiday collection. And although I’ve shared all my fall and Halloween projects from this release, I am finally diving into the winter holidays here on my blog today. So with that, I am very happy to share my first Christmas project of the year featuring the Sizzix Tim Holtz Chapter 3 dies.


You all may remember back when Chapter 3 first came out that I was given a secret assignment to create some fabric projects with the Bigz dies from this collection… and that challenge was happily accepted. One of my favorite things about the holidays is seeing all the pretty decorations and shiny bright gift packages with big ribbons and bows. I love it when the outside of the package is as much of a gift as the inside. So for my first project, I made a festive fabric drawstring gift bag with the adorable Layered Pine die.


Of course the Layered Pine is a Bigz die and easily cuts heavier materials like the cotton denim and wool felt I used here. And since the die cuts two tree pieces (the larger base tree and the smaller accent), it’s easy to mix and match to really add definition to the layers. I placed the trees at the bottom of the bag, and then went around the edges with hand-embroidered blanket stitch. Stitched on buttons give the look of ornaments and add even more texture and dimension.


I used a pretty seam binding ribbon to tie off the bag. And of course added some favorite pom pom trim to the bottom edge and ribbon ends. Because everything is better with pom poms, in my book. šŸ˜€

If you didn’t get a chance to see yet, here is the full reveal of the Sizzix Tim Holtz Chapter 3 holiday release, along with all sorts of amazing project ideas to jump start your holiday makes!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Awesome!!! You nailed that fabric challenge. Your blanket stitch is so neat. If whatever goes in that bag doesn’t stay in there, I bet the recipient will find something special to keep in it. It’s gorgeous!

  2. How lovely! I especially love the fresh, fun color scheme. Looking forward to seeing more of your holiday creations. I hope you have a wonderful birthday, too!
