My mother-in-law gave me a copy of Fa La La La Felt: 45 Handmade Holiday Decorations a couple of weeks ago and I thought I'd share a few of my favourite projects from the book with you. It's a seriously yummy book, filled to the brim with cute projects. What I like most about it, is that the projects are straight forward and fairly easy to create.
I fell in love with the Christmas trees on the front cover, but my mother-in-law whispered for me not to make those, so I'm guessing we might be getting one or two for Christmas - squeal!! I'm also super fond of these sweet ornaments above and think they'd be lovely stitched onto a little canvas or embroidery hoop.
There are 45 projects all up and Bella has a few of them bookmarked to make friends etc.. for Christmas. These owls are one of her bookmarked projects - cute hey :)
Apologies for the blurry pics too, I was taking these just before dark and didn't check them on my laptop until it was too late to take more. Those birdies would be gorgeous filled with lavender to hang in the wardrobe, don't you think?
And the darling gingerman and his sweet sugar friend. I want to make a set of these!
These are another favourite of mine too! I really need to start making some of these soon, before December arrives on my door and I run out of time.
Oh, here's my princess pile of mattresses. All twelve are now sewn up, corners cut and turned right side out. As I type I'm working my way through all the hand stitching to close off the seams. Hooray!
