Christmas Decorations.

I have been inspired by the likes of Kirstie's Homemade Home on Channel 4, Cath Kidston's Sew! and of course pink suede shoe. (If you haven't seen her stuff, have a look. She is perhaps the most inspirational person on the internet. And currently my idol!)  
So due to the snow day I got a head start on my Christmas decorations. I have a list of people to make for:
1. Cameron's Mum and Dad.
2. Emma and Paul.
3. Sean's Birthday/Christmas.
And then out-with the list, I am making things for my own tree for a proper homemade christmas. And hopefully by next year everything could be homemade!

I gathered some bits and pieces and got some felt from John Lewis and created 4 little decorations. They aren't perfect, but I like how unique they are!
My Christmas Cracker. Although I realise now this could
be seen as a fish.. 

Snow Man. I spent extra time on this for the scarf.
I hand stitched the scarf bit by bit to make it look like it's a knitted scarf. 

Christmas Tree. Perhaps a bit too much stuffing! 

I personally love this. I made sure that I
positioned the needle on the sewing machine
to make it look like the patches had
been hand stitched on!
