Firstly, I can't quite believe how quickly christmas is coming, although I haven't yet seen the Coca-Cola advert yet, so in my world, there's still time to prepare. I'm thinking of getting a lot of my gifts from Folksy this year, support the local craft community, whilst getting some lovely one off gifts... but I better get my act in gear.
Secondly, I can't believe the fact that despite 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer', being my ultimate song choice for this weekend, I have not yet made any reindeers, and I have tons of red buttons just crying out to be privileged enough to be his nose... he will be here soon, I'm sure....
So here's a peek of what I have completed already... (some of you may have already seen it on my fb page http://www.facebook.com/groups/271699299536585/)
At first I was super excited about my wreath idea, but 5 hours later, I wasn't feeling it so much, however I am happy with the overall effect. How could I not be, look at all those buttons!
I love this little fella however, I had the idea of putting yarn legs onto birds ages ago, and am so glad it worked out well...
The christmas tag that doubles up as a decoration, I'm a fan of anything that is
dual purpose for prettiness!
Trying to be arty... it didn't succeed...
...but I do like the overall effect, I probably won't be stuffing the letters in future this one is a one off, but I love the snowflake sequins, they look so pretty when they catch the light. Am currently working on a 'merry christmas' version, but thought I would save that for part 2.
I am currently making these to order, any colours catered for. If you want something that you don't have to take down in January, why not think of a word that means something to you?
