I can't believe I have almost missed Wendy's Handmade Monday...it is 9.30pm and I am quickly taking 5 minutes to post a picture from my crafty weekend. I went to the annual Zibelemärit (onion market) in Bern after work today and came home later than usual, but more on this weird Swiss tradition later this week.
My inspiration for this week's Handmade Monday came from a book I shamelessly stole from my mother-in-law which is full of clever ideas for Christmas:
I decided to make some felt ornaments for my Christmas tree using felt bought from the fabulous Lupin (check out her blog Bugs and Fishes for loads of tutorials for felt accessories or her shops for felt supplies and felt badges...I love it all!).
There is still plenty of sewing to be done as I am going to need more ornaments than this but it is a start! The Christmas puddings and the gingerbread house were made by following the super easy tutorials by Lupin (available here). Templates and inspirations for the other ornaments came from the book I have just showed you.
In order to get even more into the Christmas spirit, we went to our first Christmas market of the year on Sunday in Zürich but more on that later too...
Do drop by again this week to hear about it all!
