I've had this Nativity Quilt Magic craft for over a year, and didn't get to it for last Christmas, so I decided to get a jump on this holiday season and bring it along as my project.
The project is simple enough. All you need is a pair of scissors and a blunt (non-sharp!) edge like a butter knife, or a tucking tool. I've done a couple of these type of crafts. (For the first one, I used the back side of a seam ripper as my tucking tool, and it worked fine.) I have since purchased a small tucking tool which I like.
This project is easy to do:
|Work in progress.|
|Paper pattern piece cut.|
|Fabric cut with pattern. Also cut the "give" lines around curves.|
|Use a blunt-edge blade to tuck the fabric into the pattern board slots.|
|Tuck all around.|
|Bottom piece all tucked in.|
Repeat the same for each pattern piece until the board is finished.
|Brown fabrics tucked in.|
