For those of you who don’t know who Jenny Arnott is or what she does, she creates beautiful textile products that will last you a lifetime and never fail to light up a dull sofa or that wall that just needs something special.
But as Christmas is fast approaching us so is the Christmas craft stock and I just love these badges that Jenny has made.
I can’t help but smile when i see these just a reminder that Christmas is only 17 weeks away so get your Christmas craft on & support handmade !

So I have been crafting away like mad so I’m up to date with the very few weeks we have till Christmas, so far I have made some Bunting (and had some requests because people love it) and some cute little Christmas trees, and now I have been asked to make an Angel so I’m going to have a mooch on the web and see if I can make one, I don’t know why I doubt myself, serves me right for saying I will defiantly make something without knowing if I can, without it looking like a 3 year old made it.
So here is the bunting took me aprox 4-5 hours to make 51 inches long (130cm) I used Divine Twine from pur-ple which is currently my favorite ebay store (she sells really lovely buttons too go check her out) this was my first time at making bunting and I was really pleased with the result and im am going to make lots more with different fabrics and styles (:
I was going to make bunting out of these Christmas Trees but i prefer them as hanging decorations and with the beads and sequins i think the tree lights will refect off them beautifully and they will sparkle like jewels, Oh also the bunting is a substitute for tinsel I am not a fan of tinsel so i think it will look better (: I have cross Stitched some gifts too so those wont be uploaded till after xmas, (trees are also a gift for someone and decorations for me )
So now i am ultra prepared all my material is cut and ready for me to stitch Merry Christmas Everyone, happy Crafting (:
