Fa la la la la la la la la… Yep, Christmas has offically begun in the House of Wendy. Two days of mad dash shopping, six bags of gifts to be wrapped and presents to be made.
I have gone a bit left field and, hoorah, not a baby gift in sight. I have progessed to Next’s age 3-4 section. T Shirts as opposed to baby grows… Four wee ones, one reindeer, and voila…
- On the fourth day of Christmas, Aunty Wendy made for me…
Yes, this Christmas is mostly about reindeers, reindeers of the felted variety with red button noses.
I decided that today was a good day to try out my free embroidery foot on my sewing machine… I also found out that felt and jersey with bondaweb is not the best combination to use this foot for and that I also need more practice, a lot more practice… I am hoping that the girls don’t have a good eye for detail or else the gifts will be returned. Actually, I think the wobbly stitching gives it that unique, handmade feel; who am I kidding?
Not content with four gifts, well that and the sudden realisation that three weeks time is ‘C’ day, I decided I had better use the ‘blank’ cards I had bought from Papechase.
- Sent with love…
Ok, a little predictable I know, Christmas and reindeers, but they do look cute. Plus, I used the bondaweb cut outs for some of them so I get a big thrifty tick.
- Recycled reindeer bodies
I did try adding my Hobbycraft wobbly eyes, but just thought it was perhaps a tad over the top.
- Wobbly eye fetish?
Not content with my predictable reindeer theme, I went a step further and decided snowflakes was a good idea.
- Snowflake ‘tastic
I had bought a rather spiffing punch from Cox & Cox, and once I sussed out how to use it (with a little help from little Miss W), I spent an evening raiding my paper box and punching out flakes of loveliness.
Well, about 40 cards made, perhaps I need to get a Santa stamp, or maybe buy some proper cards? Nah, not as much fun x
