Personalised Christmas tree decoration

When I found the fur tape yesterday I thought I'd try to make a tree decoration with it. I cut a the felt slightly larger than for the Eskimo card as the tape is quite thick.I cut two sets of body shapes and blanket stitched round them and then laid them between two jacket shapes and added a little toy filling as I blanket stitched round them. Then stuck on the fur tape and the face. All this Christmas stuff (and the weather) is making me feel very wintry so I'm going to put away the felt and get some nice light flowery fabrics out and dream of summer.
