Little Puddings

I'm helping to organise a Christmas Fayre (got to have the 'y' in there...) at my local community centre on Sunday 4th December. I'll be sharing a stall with some friends so trying to get some bits and pieces ready.

Today I have working on these little felt Christmas puddings which I'm planning to make into badges (when does a badge become a brooch? not sure...). They are quite quick to make but I'm pleased with the effect. You can't really see it on the photo but the white felt is slightly glittery - love a bit of glitter, especially at Christmas.

The puddings are hand-stitched and are padded with a little toy stuffing to make them a bit more three dimensional. I need to buy some more red sequins as I'm running low.  I've nearly finished another patchwork stocking and want to make more.  Combined with some felt tree decorations, a bit of bunting and some denim bags from my stash, I think this will fill my corner of the table...

  1. These are so cute. I would love to try these but I am so rubbish at sewing. I actually have a blog link on Fridays for crafts and bits and pieces, I would love if you would link this up to it.

  2. Thanks :) They really are very easy, no complicated stitching. Will look out for the blog link on Friday
