Christmas cones

Its been a few busy weeks, but things are finally slowing down. I attended 4 Christmas fairs this year and one of them lasted for 5 days so I didn't have time to do much else.

Something that's both fun and easy to make are there cones. I prefer to make mine of fabric so that they'll last longer. I used some old christmas tablecloths with stains on them and combined that with some new fabrics. I cut the pieces out avoiding the stains, decorated some of them with lace and sew it all together. I tried finding a proper tutorial online to show you but the closest thing was this
Maybe I'll make one myself next year.

What was left after the markets I filled with candy and gave to friends and colleagues wishing them a happy Christmas.
