A few more crafty projects for Christmas time (that is to say the ones in time for Christmas; there was one that didn’t make it and will have to be a new year’s present… or perhaps spring…)
Lavender pouches, a satisfying way to use really nice small bits of fabric:
A fleece lining for Sol’s ‘itchy’ hat:
And a stocking for Otis. Not enough thick felt for the whole stocking, like Sol’s, but a lovely herringbone wool tweed instead.
I had intended to draw a new animal -I had thought a pointy little Arctic fox would suit- but I just plain old ran out of time, and reached instead for the Clare Youngs reindeer template.
I used a scrap from this year’s advent calendar fabric for the trim. I’m pleased: it’s similar to Sol’s but also quite different, and I hope Otis likes it.
We’re away with family until the end of next week… I wish you all a very happy and peaceful holiday!
