Grab yourself this Christmas Month Button!!
I am so excited! It’s nearly Christmas… … well, almost!! To celebrate this year I am going all out and have a feast of delights for you, whether you are local, or far away. From Pop Up Emporiums to Tutorials on Stocking Fillers and Presents, Wrapping or Printing your own Christmas Cards from your own design, Presents and Stocking Fillers available through my Etsy store and at Christmas Markets I am pretty sure I have you covered!!
So, to officially kick this party off, here is the run down for the next few weeks up to Christmas…
Decorations and Cards
Tutorials will include Vintage Felt Christmas Lights, Christmas Bunting and Making your own Christmas Cards, there will be a scrumptious Recipe in my new- for November only!- Tuesday Treats, for Wordless Wednesday I shall be sharing my picks of the other Tutorials and Christmassy Projects out there, all of which will inspire you to create a more sustainable, hand made Christmas this year.
Week two is all about making home made presents for those nearest and dearest to you! These don’t have to be ridiculously complicated but I do have one rule I stick to: they have to be useful and purse friendly as well as lovely! I shall have Tutorials on things like making simple but beautiful Patchwork Cushions and Pot Pinchers/Oven Gloves, a full Pyjama’s Tutorial with Pattern and Instruction sheet as well as some smaller makes to come. This weeks Wordless Wednesday will show a little of what is to come next week!
Not just Brown Paper and String, y’know! Week Three will see Tutorials on making Christmas Gift Bags, Stockings (with my fool proof easy as pie method!), Crackers and Wired Ribbon Tutorials. This weeks Tuesday Treat comes with a Drink recommendation all the family can enjoy and Fridays article will be all about simple ways to print fabric, in preparation for my Christmas Pop Up Emporium!
I think this will be my favorite week! With Tutorials on making Party Hats and Fascinators, and a fantastic bigger make in my Circle Party Skirt with Net Petticoat!! There will also be hints and tips for embellishments and bling so this week may be one for the girls, and definitely one to read if you want something special to wear for a Festive Party this year! There will be a mini Something Pretty Tutorial for the boys: Ties and Bow Ties, with a free Pattern and PDF!! Another Tuesday Treat and Wordless Wednesday will be included, and the last article of the month will be all about Up-Cycling bits and bobs to decorate and adorn and will accompany a peek into a Sewing Cafe getting ready for Christmas!
Along the way I shall be sharing all manner of things from the many, many Blogs I follow so it promises to be a slightly chaotic, glittery, colourful and fun month! Perfect for Christmas!
Many of the above Christmas Makes will be available to do in my Christmas Pop Up Shop… which is growing every day! Grab yourself the above button if you want to join along on your Blog:
