Yep....that's it now, we've started our Christmas Crafts in the Pocket and Pin household! My eldest kiddos birthday is at the beginning of October but once that has passed i turn my mind well and truly towards Christmas!
Owning a craft shop has become a big perk (and a bit dangerous!) especially at this time of year, i have so much to tempt me and the project list is ever growing! I always keep a little of my favourite ribbons, trims and buttons for my own stash.
I ALWAYS have Hessian ready and waiting at this time of year! A couple of years ago I made my boys personalised Christmas sacks, they are still going strong! Hessian is great for sacks and stockings, table decorations, wreaths...it's so versatile and durable. You can buy it by the half metre in our shop, click here.
Felt is one of my favourite fabrics, also extremely versatile and great for little hands if the kiddos want to join in! Check out our Pinterest account for lots of ideas for felt projects. We have over forty colours in stock. We also put together pre-selected colour bundles. Our felt is 30% wool and confirms to EN71 toy safety standards.
Who doesn't love a festive ribbon?!? Whether you are choosing ribbons to adorn your festive makes or simply for that extra special gift wrap we have gone all out this year. It's definitely our biggest selection ever. Prices start from just 60p a metre for our printed ribbons and there are tons of cute and pretty prints to choose from. Whether you are a traditionalist or like something cute and modern, we have something for you. Here's a glimpse of some of my faves....
Our Christmas Bias binding is always popular. We have some of the old favourites from last year back plus a couple of newbies. Whether you are using it for some simple festive bunting or finishing off some festive garments it's sure to add a very merry touch.
We love a cute button!...and you can't get cuter than little wooden Stars, Christmas Trees and Snowflakes, all our Christmassy buttons have a distinctly Scandi feel this year, I LOVE them!
I can't get through the festive season without Baker's Twine! It's my go to trim for presents and hanging cards. We have some great colours for Christmas and new this year we have Metallic Gold and Silver which are available exclusively by the 100m roll in our Not on the High Street shop.
Gifts and Stocking Fillers
We are not all about the supplies! You can also find some fab little items to stuff those stockings or put under the tree to treat the crafty people in your life.
Our Polkadot Embroidery Scissors, Pin Wheels, Felt Bundles and Pom Pom Makers are ideal for stockings and our Habdash Boxes are a fab present to inspire any crafter. Why not give something a little different this year?
Home crafts definitely become more popular this time of year as the nights draw in and we need something to occupy us on those cosy autumn evenings. Here's to a busy couple of months of preparation and the most crafty time of year!
