I am just starting my Christmas gift prep and Alicia Paulson's seasonal ornament patterns are going to form a key part of this.
I've made one and I think I have at least seven more to go. Alicia's patterns are delightful, I love the level of detail but don't expect to make them fast, they are a process to enjoy and labour over whilst adding those extra little details. She recommends National Non Wovens felt. I have used this for Maggie Rabbit and it is wonderful stuff but it is hard to get hold of and it is expensive. For these ornaments, I took a look at Courtney's felt selection at Seamstar. It is a little thinner but still very pleasurable to work with and a soft supple mix of wool and viscose. The bundle I chose was a mini roll of pastel.Berries as I thought is would also make pretty winter coat decorations.
And Autumn has great leaf and tree colours.
Halloween could be what you need for Autumn
Christmas Lights is very pretty with the addition of pink
Christmas Day has a traditional colour palette
New felt colours are discounted, 10% off during October.
There are some lovely fabric hampers which combine felt with fabrics and trim. This is called Modern selection with Lotta Jansdotta fabrics.
And here is another, Quirky, if you want some colour that packs a bit more punch.
Courtney has continued to add more links to the website and there are great projects including Christmas decorations and a Christmas Stocking on her shop blog.
