Things for Christmas!
It feels like a natural state of being to make things at Christmas - I've been doing it for as long as I can remember!
Advent Calendar Stockings
We used to have a set of felt and glue stockings around our fireplace at home. There was a sweet each in every stocking, alongside a chore ('clean the rabbit out, tidy your bedroom!). No chore, no sweet. In my new grown-up version, there are only sweets. When James is bigger, the chores will return! These are knitted stockings in a variety of designs, from stripes, images, letters to full on fair-isle!
I now use these as door hangers too - although the dove ones are away again until next year! These are various fabrics stuffed with padding to create a 3D effect. Lace and button details then added.
