I decided that Joshua should have his very own decoration for his first Christmas so made him a little Christmas stocking for the tree with his initial on. I hope he likes it...
He also has a big brother so it was only fair that I made him one too. His is filled with little chocolates and I finally got to use some little bells that I had been hoarding for ages!
I had seen some fabric Christmas wreaths on a couple of blogs and really wanted to give it a try so here is my attempt. I'm not sure whether it worked or not? What do you think? It was lots of fun to make and really easy. I used an embroidery hoop as the base for it and simply tied on lots of fabric strips.
It was finished off with some ribbon and little bells.
I also made a little box of chocolates to hang on the tree with some cute Christmas card. Its filled with mini chocolate snowmen. This is also very easy to make and you can find the pattern here.
and finally some lovely festive chocolates.
Happy Christmas Beatrice. I hope 2011 is a bit less stressful for you all!
