Gingerbread Men Christmas Tree Decorations - Tutorial


Is your Christmas tree full of handmade decorations too? Ours seems to have a timeline of my crafty Christmas makes from over the years, from about age 3 upwards! This year I was contacted by Wren Kitchens and asked if I would like to do a little tutorial for their #24DaysOfWren advent calendar - and if there's one thing I like to make at Christmas it's decorations! Try your hand at these super simple fimo gingerbread men. They're made entirely of polymer clay - they won't go stale and will keep for many years to come!

Life Lately....

It's been a while since I posted a little "life" update, in fact my last and only update was in July! The pattern posts obviously get the most views and attention so I have been concentrating mostly on them. However, I realize this blog was actually to document my journey to becoming a fully fledged pattern designer so I think a little update on what I've been up to would be appropriate!

Christmas Elf - Free Crochet / Amigurumi Pattern


Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock! Gosh that's all I've been singing ever since I started designing this little elf, complete with jingly shoes and hat! He is the most elaborate pattern I have ever designed, but I'm extremely pleased with how he turned out. The dungarees were a particular headache - I was tearing my hair for 3 nights straight until I managed to get them right!
