December Crafternoon

This should be my last post about December (which seems so far away now!) I didn’t have a crafternoon in January because some times it’s nice to take a month off and have plenty of time to plan the next one. December’s crafternoon is always a favorite of mine because everything is decorated all festively for Christmas, I get to make my annual holiday mixed cds for everyone, and there always seems to be plenty of Christmas cookies. We made felt stockings, decorated with colored floss, sequins, and buttons. I purchased some blank stockings for anyone who didn’t want to make their own, and then had felt sheets in as many colors as I could find for decorating them. Jessee brought her Sizzix Fabi machine with a few dies like snowflakes, and hexagons. I really need to look into these machines, some of my paper and fabric cutting for Plush Of The Month gets a little out of control. I think most people liked being able to have something pre-cut from felt, and it might have just been Molly and I who cut out our own shapes. I knew ahead of time I wanted to make several stockings and ended up with a snowman, reindeer, and tree (though I only took a photo of my snowman and the others are packed away with the Christmas stuff now). It was a wonderful time, and going through my photos has me even more excited for February’s Valentine crafternoon!
