Christmas is coming....

Now that it is December, I have had to face up to the fact that Christmas is coming!! I have finally started some Christmas shopping and, I thought it was also time to start some Christmas sewing projects too. I know it is a bit late but, better late than never!!  I have seen so many beautiful Christmas projects in magazines and on Pinterest that I would like to stitch, making it difficult to know where to get started.



However, last weekend I was browsing through one of my Pinterest boards when I came across a beautiful Christmas decoration that I pinned some while ago.  I followed the pin back to the blog that it had been pinned from and found a lovely tutorial for it.  It didn't look too difficult and I had everything that I needed to make one, so I thought I would give it a try.



I printed out the instructions which I think are an excerpt from the book 'Fa La La La Felt', sorted out some felt, beads and threads and got started!



Here is my finished decoration.  It went together very well and I am delighted with the result... I just need to make lots more now!!

  1. Liebe Christine,
    deine Weihnachtskugel gefallen mir sehr sehr gut, selbst wenn morgen schon Heiligabend wäre, würde es sich noch lohnen damit anzufangen!
    Liebe Grüße
