Handmade Christmas

I can hardly believe that I bought this book in 2012 and it sat on my bookshelf for years.  It was one of those projects which I intended to start, but I couldn't seem to find the time to get underway.

Last year, I got as far as tracing all of the pattern pieces and the mammoth task of cutting out all of the felt.  By the time this was completed, I had no time left for the more creative part of the project. I started the Christmas pudding, then laid it aside, carefully placing all of the pieces in a tin.

Who would have thought that a few simple felt decorations could be so time-consuming?

Last week, I came across this project in my craft room and decided to make a start.

The reindeer one isn't in the photo, but is almost completed, apart from a missing piece of felt for the bow.  I'm certain that I cut this out, but it seems to have vanished.

The Christmas pudding is finally completed and here is the collection of the other finished pieces.  I have five left to sew and then I will have my Christmas dozen, finished in time for decorating the tree next month.


  1. VERY SWEET, Marie... working with felt is such fun! :) Happy making & decorating! Great to catch up with all your posts this month... sorry I've not been able to visit/comment daily. ((HUGS))
