More Christmas Makes

Here they are - the final batch of projects I made for Christmas presents etc.
Grace likes owls so I used applique and embroidery to make her this owl cushion for her room.
The owl has large button eyes.

I also made some fancy labels to make the presents extra special. Here are two I made.

They are just plain luggage labels decorated with nice paper and a felt flower.

The flower has a sequin centre and some gold thread embroidery on it - to make it sparkle.
I knitted some little bags and filled them with chocolates.

The pattern is by Diana Mulholland and is available as a free Ravelry download.

I couldn't resist these cute little elves.

They are crocheted and have a wooden clothes peg inside them to grip to whatever you want.
I used tiny black beads for the eyes. The hats can be customised but mine are all plain at the moment. I made five in total.

The pattern is by Irene Strange and was in the December 2010 issue of Inside Crochet magazine.

I used them to attach name cards to ribbons on the backs of dining chairs. They are now swinging quite happily from the curtains.

Finally, as a little stocking filler I made us all finger moustaches.

This is a really quick and easy pattern to make - and is guaranteed to bring a smile to every one's faces.
The pattern is by Megan Death and is available free here.
Well that brings all the Christmas projects up to date.


  1. How fun are those moustaches? I LOVE them!

  2. So much fun! I really like the elves, too!

  3. care to share the pattern, or where you got the pattern, for the elves?? they are super!!!

  4. Hi Susan W,
