Santa's workshop

Posted on July 14 2015

Santa works hard man ! Millions of kids to make toys for?! I only have to make two kids toys and it's a part time job. It's an awesome job let me just say ;) I have been so productive and loving the end results of all the fun gifts I've made. For the little Miss... I bought a sweet felted slipper pattern on Etsy by Lavender Hill Knits to knit our princess some of these.. 20131219-221112.jpg These took one skein of Malabrigo worsted. I used a dark grey for the soles and a purple for the body, then I took some felt tinsel and roving and needle felted the hearts. She got a sneak preview before I added the hearts and loved them. Malabrigo felts really nice. So super soft too. We carry this company called 'Felt' and I used some of the goodies from them to make her a fairy bag as well. The company us pretty great! Already cut remnants from felted sweaters. It's a fun way to recycle and the work of sweater hunting, felting them, and cutting into pieces- done for you and packaged real cute! Along with felt balls and really awesome hollow needles for punching through your felt balls to make crafting much easier. 20131219-221441.jpg The flowers and the fabric are products by 'Felt'. I love this little bag! Pretty excited to fill it with treasures :) Then to top it all off I made a Tinkerbell skirt using trim and elastic from the shop. 20131219-221710.jpg 20131219-221722.jpg Santa's workshop is not well lit, my apologies. Better pictures to come! I still have a fairy wand and treasure to add, I'll keep you posted. Can't wait to share what I made our animal loving little guy! Hope you are all inspired. These are quick projects and real fun to make. Happy Knitting! xx Ash
