Molly and Mama has a beautiful tutorial on making this GORGEOUS Christmas decoration. Read a sneak peak below and follow on to her blog…
In the big hot land Down Under, we don’t get to really enjoy the beauty of a white Christmas (or even a green Christmas come to think of it!). It’s hot, and dry, and characterised by seafood, salads, swimming and sun! But that doesn’t mean we don’t often dream of a snowy Christmas, snuggled up by the fire with a hot chocolate, staring contentedly at our fresh evergreen Christmas tree laden with cookie decorations and popcorn garlands. I’m painting a pretty picture here right?
One way to bring a traditional Christmas to Australia is with decorations! And if you know me, you know that there’s nothing I like more than hand-stitching some gorgeous little creations in felt. In fact, I love 100% wool felt so much, I wrote some tips and tricks for working with it HERE. It’s just so versatile! And forgiving!
With some scraps of wool felt, a needle and embroidery floss, you can create this adorable little mouse and also stitch her sweet little stocking. She’s only small (3 inches tall and 2 inches wide), so she’s a bit fiddly to make. But she’s easy to sew. And so is her stocking. It’s only 3 inches tall (not including the hanging loop).
You could make a whole bunch of cute mice in stockings to cover your tree. Now wouldn’t that be a sight? They’d make adorable gifts too!
