Christmas is coming.
For crafters this means an early start. Added to this mix, are two young nephews, asking me to make all sorts of things. My pipecleaner stock is rapidly decreasing as I make pairs of glasses for various toys.
They have both been watching "Alvin and the Chipmunks" so I`ve been busy making crochet chipmunks and they had to have removable hoodies in the right colours!
The bigger set.
The smaller set.
I also had to make a matching monkey to make a pair. These are very small.
A few lavender bags are always nice. I made these from all my Christmas scraps and added some glitter and reindeer.
Here are my alternative gnomes as opposed to traditional coloured ones. I used wool that subtly changes colour for the hats. The beards are made from a recycled fur collar.
I have made little packets from bee and floral wrapping paper. Finer seed is placed into parchment folds. Here they are so far. Lots still to go.
