It's beginning to look a lot like...

You know what it's beginning to look like... it's in the air, it's here there & everywhere.

And so, long after I *should* have started, I have begun in earnest. 
The Christmas making season is underway in my little corner of the world. These are the first Christmas cuties I've completed this season.
I made them from a pattern from Fa La La La Felt, a great book I picked up last year from Amanda Carestio.

 These are the first project I've made from this book, and I have plans made for several more, I was instantly in love with these little portraits so they beckoned to be first.

Miss Bunny

Mr. Fox

Party Kitty

I made these from felt I already had in my stash, and isn't that the great thing about craft stash? Once you've aquired a fair bit, very often you can just plunk out little (and sometimes big!) projects without ever venturing to the craft store. I love that.

So my friends, what are you working on at the moment? Any Christmas goodies? Do tell, I'd love to pop over and have a look!
oxo,
Lisa

Eeep! ♥ These are adorable! I just finished a couple teensy little x-stitch pieces for my boys...Buzz & Woody. (No pics, yet, since the kids have been home from school on vacation all week long.) I'd rather be making something like this, though! Lol!! :-D

Those are so sweet! I definitely need to start working up a felt stash.. My fabric one is getting there.. I am working on an advent calendar for my niece and nephew... They definitely won't have it for the first though!

Fa La La La Felt is just chock full of adorable ornaments, including these!

I've been working on a cross stitch trio, and it will be a miracle if they're done by Christmas, and cross stitch can be tedious. so Wednesday (when I should have been cooking and cleaning) I put together some quick ornaments with machine applique and a bit of embroidery -- so satisfying.

So cute! I love the kitty! I've been plugging away on a cross stitch for a while now. I really need to get my butt in gear though and start my gifts!!

Michelle said...

Very cute! Makes me wish I had started my Christmas crafting already. Gonna start Wednesday with homemade Christmas cards.

Your felt portrait ornaments are really cute. I haven't done any crafting, but hubby has ten cross-stitch Christmas cards ready to send.
