Please forgive me for being really slack this month with getting my posts out – after seeing the next batch of entries, I think you’ll agree it was worth the wait!
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if we all could one day open our Christmas decoration box and find only beautiful handmade decorations instead of mass-produced, plastic, shop bought ones – would be lovely to rather line the pockets of real talented artisans instead! These beautiful crochet baubles made by Jane of Rainbow Junkie Corner not only look amazing (both of them Jane!) they look like so much fun to make, esp seeing as Jane has already done all the “figuring things out” for us. I’m adding these to my Made It Christmas Box (the one that I have created in my head, full of decorations that I want to make. )Please click here for the pattern and great tutorial!
What a fabulous idea! Hats From The Hall – a day of hat making, from start to finish. The above three entries are from Jill from O’Noodles (always so lovely getting to see your smiling face Jill!) who attended an amazing felt hat making course. What a fabulous day it looked like, especially if the *stunning* resulting hat and flower are anything to go by! If you live in the area, go and check it out. Annnnnd, here is something I’ve never seen before….homemade gift wrapping, completely with little ribbons and vintage button. Genuis!
Welcome back to the zany and colourful Patricia from DaniellaJoe. I’ve seem many adorable owl beanies but I have to say that this dear sweet little owl is the most unique one yet – and the standard is super high (‘eh Jill)… Isn’t she gorgeous! I love the colours, the wild eyes and bright blue buttons. There is a link to a great video tutorial for the little chap so whatya waiting for…
From colourful owl to colourful COWL! This super cosy looking cowl was made by Susan from Susan’s Musings, another fabulous addition to the Made It Cowl Collection (sheweee, voting is going to be tough!). There is a link to the pattern which Susan says is really quite to make up…a fab stash buster me thinks!!!!
The next two entries are new comers to the Made It – Wooohoooo, please welcome two incredibly talented ladies who each made the most A.M.A.Z.I.N.G jewellery…..(oh, if you are battling to read foreign blogs, try using Google Chrome as your browser – it will give you an option to translate into English or whatever your preferred language is)

Another sensational piece of jewellery comes from Inez of Ineseda. This beautiful crocheted necklace is made with the finest yarn and is completely seamless – wow, that a lot of work! Worth every second….. Inez has posted a pattern too, so please pop over and have a look. Her blog is also full with the most wonderfully unique creations
Thank you Avis, I AM singing, I AM in the mood for Christmas and your HAVE brightened up my day!!! These beautiful Christmas tree decorations (all 12 of them!) were expertly made by Avis of Oh Sew Tempting – another stunning addition to our Made It Christmas Box. Oh course, she makes it look so easy but thankfully she’s included super tutorial heehee.
YAY, the lovely Laura from La Vie En Rose has entered this gorgeous Butterfly Bow Beanie, knitted for her daughter. I ADORE the little bow, it really adds to the overall charm. I also love the tweed effect achieved by using double strands of each colour. Thanks Laura, so happy you are back!
