Finished Flannel Reindeer with tag

I wanted to make a tag for my flannel reindeers to make them look more finished.  I searched everywhere for a poem and was kindly provided with one by Kay over on MSE so many thanks for that!

Here is what the finished reindeers looks like now


You can find my tutorial here
You can find my reindeer poems here to go on the tags.
****Updated****

Ok just to answer a question regarding the cloth used:

To the lady that pointed out that it isn't flannel fabric but terry towelling - I'm in the UK we call the cloth a flannel and it doesn't refer to the fabric which is indeed towelling.  A flannel in the UK is a cloth that you wash with!!

*** Update - Thank you to those of you that have taken the time to comment, it means alot to me.  I've had some lovely comments and a couple of strange ones - I've ignored the strange ones as those people were just weirdo's!!!!  Thank you also to people that are following my blog and to those of you that have headed over to Facebook and liked my page Bumble Bee's Craft Den.

FYI this post has been viewed more than 94,000 times, I am flabbergasted!!!!!!!!


**12 Oct 2013** - this year's Flannel Reindeers can be seen here!!

  1. That looks soooo cute. I really like the tag that you have added, it says it all so that people won't keep asking what's inside it ;0) x

  2. Love the tag, it really does takeaway the "homemade" aspect and turns it into "handmade". Great idea hun. x

  9. I couldn't help but notice that the reindeer looks like it's made of a terry cloth washcloth, not flannel. I also think a tutorial would be fabulous.

    1. Click on the picture and you can read the poem - or make one of your own1 Be creative - add your own flair! I am pretty sure I can wrap a bar of soap, glue some eyes on and add antler pipe cleaners! Give it whirl!

      The Poem:
      Everyone loves this time of year,
      All the laughter and good cheer,
      A season that is full of hope,
      And a reindeer that's a flannel and a bar of soap!

  29. This is adorable - getting my Christmas DIY list ready to go, 4 months early but we're moving in about 3 weeks - just getting everything in order. The kids don't know it yet, but its going to be rather a smaller Christmas this year, as money is tighter but we're all going to be together and that's the meaning of the holidays, right? I'm sure I can figure out how to do this on my own.. Thank you again for spending the time to post it to begin with. Hope you're having a lovely summer. Sure is hot here in the States. :) Take care.
