Well Christmas has come and gone and I have been very busy making a few things. First off the monster that was the Advent calendar I wanted a individual calendar that was big enough for five chocolate in each pocket. It took me about 3 weeks worth of evenings and everything on there has been hand sewn (and wunda webbed for added strength), I finally finished it on November 30th, well finished it for this year as next year I will put a back on it and add something on the right hand side of the picture. The Father Christmas on his sleigh was a printable from Activity Village and the snowflakes were from Arts and crafts ideas everything else was mine or Mr Pea’s own templates.
Next up was a Gingerbread and mitten garland. Again I found some patterns on the internet and cut out some felt shapes. The mitten template was from North Pole Christmas a brilliant site for all templates christmassy. I then embroidered the pattern and faces on the Gingerbread men and a blanket stitch and a heart on the mittens, finally I used some garden twine and stuck the shapes to it using parcel tape (as that was all I had to hand).
