For the last two weeks I have been crazy busy cutting and stitching felt. I’ve pretty much been knee deep in the stuff. Amazingly, I’ve really enjoyed it, I’ve not once become fed up with the cutting or the stitching. Most of the time I make something once and then get immensely bored if I have to do it again. Something must be wrong with me because I had this little production line going and got addicted to seeing how much stuff I could churn out. I’ve had fun anyway.
I made brooches (not really my cup of tea).
I made Christmas trees.
Boots for elves.
Peaceful little doves.
Lots of these.
I came up with a new robin design.
And I improved upon a prancing reindeer pattern that I originally made two years ago (can’t photograph the old one as that fella is in the loft with all the other Christmas stuff).
They might be my favourites. They’re so fancy!
And more gingerbread men!
On Saturday I’m taking them to the school Christmas Fayre. I hope people like them. I do! Glad I’ve finished them really because little, near invisible stuffing fibres kept trying to live in my eyes.
Sewing and crochet this week. Hopefully I will feel like getting the sewing machine out once the kids have gone to bed but I’m well behind on Dr Who episodes and everyone is talking about Clara!

I love the robins.
Thanks! Next week might be doll making if I can find a good pattern and some yellow fabric…
Your little creations are really lovely. Good luck with your school fair, I’m sure they’ll sell like hot cakes:-)
Thank you. I hope so but I have no idea what to expect!
It’s all lovely but my favourite is the robin. You have been busy. Good luck at the fair 🙂
Thanks, I like the robins too. Think they’re up the top of my list but I also like the reindeer.
People will love them, they are adorable, all of them! x
Wonderful post and very timely too – I’m running a Christmas Craft Workshop for kids and they’d love to make some of these!
My eldest son (6) is desperate to make his own gingerbread men. I keep telling him we’ll make some after Saturday. He’s even drawn his own template. I’ll have to make sure I take a picture!
These are just too adorable! I made similar ones last year, and this year I am working on stocking shaped ones that hold gift cards. Love it! 🙂
Thanks. I’d love to see how your stocking ones turns out!
Here’s how my stocking ones turned out:
Happy Holidays! <3
These are awesome! I’m sure your stand at the Christmas Fayre will be the busiest there 😀 I had a hard time picking my favourite decoration, but I think I’m going to be controversial and choose the doves. I love the little embroidered snowflake on each one! Good luck 😀
That is controversial! I sold all of the felt decorations apart from the white doves with blue wings. They were rejected by the masses 🙁 Thank you for liking them!
Ha! Just goes to show that there’s something for everyone out there! Congratulations on your sales though, that must have felt good! 😀
Thanks. It’s definitely interesting what people choose. I need to sort out my Etsy shop now.
Oh, tell me about it! Mine is in serious need of some TLC… 😆
