Today’s Guest Curator:
Tina from Miss Daisy Patterns
Hi I’m Tina from Miss Daisy Patterns. I just love handmade Christmases, each year I have been able to add to my handmade decoration collection and this year is no different, I’m going to enjoy making the following collection. I blog over at Miss Daisy Patterns, where I create sewing patterns and some times make YouTube videos featuring the items I make, my favourite at the moment is this little penguin
Button and Felt Ornaments
First up it is all about the Christmas tree, Jessica from Cutesy Crafts created these wonderful button and felt ornaments. They are completely hand sewn.
Decorative Stitch Tree Ornament
Next up Ruth from Sewing Spark shows you how to create really cute Christmas trees using a variety of decorative stitches on your sewing machine, I will definitely be trying some of these this year.
Up-Cycled Sweater Christmas Ornaments
Up-cycling is something I am very passionate about and when I came across these cookie cutter up-cycled sweater Christmas ornaments designed by Claire (of Pillar Box Blue), I just knew they had to be on my ‘to make list’. I am already collecting sweaters.
Simple Felt Christmas Tree Ornament
A super simple ornament to make with kids is available over on Coloured Buttons. Trixi’s excellent tutorial shows step by step how to make this quick and easy Christmas tree ornament.
Vintage Paper Decorations
Finally, I just loved these vintage paper decorations, Kat from Felt Berry has created the cutest paper and hand stitched woodland creatures.
Printable Christmas Tags
I’ve always been a bit partial to Scandinavian design so when I found Andrea’s really cute gift-wrapping ideas with free printable Christmas tags I was definitely smitten.
One of my favourite handmade items for the Christmas table has to be cutlery pockets, I feel that they just add that extra special bit. Anorila’s excellent cutlery pocket tutorial for a handmade Christmas is just the business; these will be a definite addition to my Christmas table this year.
Snowman Cutlery Holder
Then I came across a second set, which I think would be a fun addition too, Hayley’s snowman cutlery holder. Now I am just gong to have to make two sets.
Spiced Vegan Christmas Cookies
After all that sewing, I definitely felt treats were in order and I couldn’t resist these mouth watering Spiced Vegan Christmas Cookies w/ Vanilla Almond Cream by Sarah at Well and Full.
