The Night Before Christmas...

 

 

 

 


Here's another of my thrifted wool pants projects...

...fulled and needle-felted with Christmas designs...

...then briefly wet-felted to 'firm it up'.


I sewed on some small colored beads for 'ornaments'...


...lined it, and put a zipper in for another small makeup bag.

************************************************************

I realized as my Christmas cards were arriving this year...

...that I really don't have any special 'pocket' kind of place for them.

(I used to have some white and red baker's twine with teeny-tiny clothespins that I used for this purpose...

...but I have absolutely no idea where this went!)

So I decided to make one!

I made two layers of green batts on my Cardatrice...

...and sandwiched in a thin, card-sized piece of foam.

I needle felted "Merry Christmas" and a poinsettia onto it...

...then wet-felted it (with a small slit in the top).

It works great!!

(If I make another one, though, I'll make sure that you can still read "Merry" even after the cards are inside it!!) Grin.

Very good idea, and it is practical and pretty at the same time.
