And some hand knitted mini Christmas socks for the tree. Pattern suggests cotton, I’ve done them in wool:
Getting Christmassy. I love DIY decorations for the tree. Lots of tutorials out there with wrapping baubles in various materials (wool, twine, strips of ripped fabric) to create your own. This is my version using ribbon. So for this project you’ll need:
At least 1.5 m of ribbon per ball depending on the width of your ribbon
Polystyrene balls, glue, pins (2 per bauble) & string for hanging
1. Start wrapping from top holding with thumb and go round overlaying the ribbon. 2. Glue the edge when you finish. 3. Insert pin (with a bit of glue on) at top and bottom of the bauble through all the layers of ribbon to hold in place. 4. Add a string round one of the pins heads and you’re done!
And the business cards for Elizabeth Webley photography. She sells lovely cards.
Skeletal leaf found amongst the rotting leaves in the garden. I love the beautiful texture. Definitely can make something out of it or just frame it!
More Christmassy finds. Red berries to be used in wreaths or making a garland
Found these lovely mini pine cones. Great for Christmas craft: for wrapping presents or making mini decorations or in wreaths. Need to go out and collect some more. Would look lovely spray painted white too. Will try that at some point.
The printed goodies for my woolly business have arrived. Very please with the stickers and labels printed by moo. A bit of hand drawn pattern on them to go with the handmade ethos of the business. Not far to go, just the website to do and them I’m ready to sell!
