December 8th : Sharing my Completed Fiber Nativity

Fiber Nativity

Today is Precepe Day in Italy and along with setting up my small collection of nativities, I added the babe and the manger to my all fiber nativity scene.

Needle felting was the perfect choice for both the babe in swaddling clothes and the manger. Bits of stash yarn in shades of yellow were needle felted to the bottom inside of the manger and then some were untwisted. Very simple and quick!

Yarn Stars. The Perfect Last Minute Ornament or Decoration.

Yarn stars 2015

Yarn Stars make beautiful, very last minute ornaments for holiday decorating - tree ornaments, garlands, gift tie-ons, hanging in windows. Diane at craftypod and I had a little yarn star making playtime with family and these were the results.

As you can see, even if you sort of lose your way and go a different direction, as long as you are consistent, the star should work out. Notice the cool open weave of the grey and red star above. I love it!
