I know it is only October, but Christmas is only around the corner, and I feel so disorganised as a crafter. I haven’t been doing this long enough to have “done” Christmas before, and I already feel like I’ve left it too late!!
One thing I am excited about is a little project between myself and Michelle over at Handmade Haven. She made a batch of cinammon soaps, which I am felting in Christmassy colours and designs. The felted soaps lather up beautifully, which means you use less soap each time. The felt also acts like a flannel, and gently exfoliates the skin, and as you use it the wool continues to felt, so it stays close tight to the soap itself. These will hopefully make a wonderful stocking filler type present.I have been asked by the guild if I had any things that I could sell at a stall they are doing in November. So, I am making up some crocheted flowers using bits of spun wool, and turning them into brooches. There is also plans for hairclips and bobby pins too!
