Christmas Wedding Inspiration

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

Its beginning to look a lot like………………………… Christmas!

We have been so busy this week fulfilling all our Christmas Wedding orders so I was inspired to put together a mood board of Christmas Wedding inspiration.

I have chosen a classic red, green, white and silver colour scheme with hints of berries, evergreen foliage and ribbon.

It occured to me while making her she would make a perfect thank you gift for a flowergirl.

She is made in beige felt, with polka dot lined ears. Her dress is pretty lilac gingham with an American binding tape bow and a soft knitted caplete fastened with a simple pearl button.

She has been completed with handmade felt boots and as an extra special detail I have added a soft white pom pom tail.

Christmas Robin Cupcake Toppers

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Every year at Christmas I like to add a handmade element to our Christmas decorations.

This year I decided to make some cupcake toppers that we could keep and use each Christmas.

I decided to design some cute festive robins but I wanted to keep them simple so I could make them as and when I had the time.

Robin Cupcake Topper

Robin Cupcake Topper

They are made from a simple circle of brown felt with beaded black eyes a yellow felt beak and three layers of ribbon for its wings. I then wanted a cheery red fabric for his red breast so I plumped for a micro dot red and white fabric and to finish off I added yellow beaded legs.

To emphasise the details I used a black thread and stitched a back stitch around all the robins features and to make him extra neat I added another brown circle of felt to the back of him.

To add him to the cupcake I slotted a cocktail stick between the two brown circles.
