In Estonia we have a tradition of bringing a real and natural Christmas tree in our homes at Christmas time. I accidentally happened to find some very nice self-made Christmas decorations on the internet, so I got inspired and decided to make some Christmas balls myself.
Meet Jester the Christmas gnome. This new doll design was so much fun to make. Enjoyed it from the first stitch till the last one!
Again I used some inspiration of Waldorf dolls which I adore so much. I was especially happy with how the body and legs worked out. The sweet little boots and those weird shaped pants – I love them! However, my daughter said his ears are most lovable ones :)
You will find the pattern in my shop – JESTER THE CHRISTMAS GNOME
Today I will show you the little angel doll. She is my 3rd week Christmas project. First I draw the picture above and then started making it. I am awful in drawing, but sometimes it is essential to have the idea in front of your eyes.
So, you already noticed I am late with my post, because I promised to share it on every Advent. I appologise for that. Actually I wanted to show you something else I`ve made, but since I couldn`t manage to take photos of it, I decided to change the plans. We are having this awful dark period of the year. We only have about 6 hours of daylight in a day and only 2 hours when you can actually take photos inside the room. I finished my project which was meant for the 2nd Advent on Friday, so I was just on time, but… Since I was away from home on Saturday and Sunday I couldn`t photograph it. You will see it on next Sunday, I promise.
So, here is my project for the 2nd Advent – Christmas teddy bear.
Even though we say Christmas is the time of peace and joy, quiet evenings with family and friends, it actually tends to be the most restless time of the year. We have so much to do – parties here and there, preparations for events, shopping, cooking etc. For crafty people it probably means the busiest time of the year for fulfilling all the customer orders.
This year I decided to make it differently. I take time for myself. I am planning to celebrate each Advent with something new I have made, something that goes together with the Christmas and winter overall. This is all new and interesting for me as I haven`t made much holiday stuff before. Also it will be a challenge and we`ll see if I´ll manage to put myself together and complete it successfully.
Does anyone want to join me?! I would feel so happy if you did. It would be much more fun to make it together then do it alone! What you need to do is simply share the link of what you have made on the comments feed. One item per week and Christmas stuff only. So let`s get started!
