Crafting

I have been busy crafting and making over the last week or so.  We have made and posted all our Christmas cards, we have a few still to hand deliver.  We used old Christmas cards that I saved from previous years and using a cut out stamps of a Christmas tree and a star cut out the shapes and stuck them on.  My youngest wanted to help make the cards this year hence the simple design.

I have finally got round to buying so hair clips to attach flowers to.  I knitted these some time ago but have been waiting for my local craft shop to get some clips in stock which they did this week, just in time for Christmas.

I knitted up this cardigan for my youngest's dolly and have a dress on the needles both have been made with yarn from my stash.  The pattern for the cardigan is here, I modified it slightly to fit the size of our dolly.  If I made it again I would make further modifications as it is slightly too wide in the body.  I have made up a pattern for the dress.


I have just a few more bits I need to finish up for my mostly handmade Christmas.
