    Xmas bon bon are easy
    need 2 pieces of Xmas Fabric 9 1/2 inches by12 1/2inches
    a piece of stiffening
    Iron stiffening to wrong side of one piece of fabric
    place the right sides tog and stitch around leaving an opening to turn fabric to right side.
    Press well
    mark 1-2 inches in from either end and run a gathering thread ( I do 2 gathering runs) gather up and secure then I tie a RIBBON OR GOLD THREAD AROUND THE GATHERING

    Fporgot to mention with the bon bon
    That when it is finished one long side is open so I fill the Bon bon with lollies and sit them on the table at xmas and they look fab.another Idea is put a small gift for a friend,not always do i make them out of Xmas fabric,I have even made them out of strips of different farics,I have made some for our Church fete next month .It was very late here in aussis so i was not thinking too straight..happy sewing
    cheers

    That's a new one for me (as is most of the great stuff I read here). What is a Bonbon?

    A Bonbon-think at xmas we have bonbons on the table you pull them apart and get a party hat and a joke,well these are material bonbons that you don't pull apart as they have one open side,they can look very colorful on the table at xmas ( I think they do ) and if you want to give a small gift put it in the bon bon ,sorry not sure how to put the pics up if anyone is unclear please let me know and i will try to help cheers
