Anyway - with summer going, the next thing to prepare for is Christmas!! Can't believe I am saying the 'C' word in September!!!!
I am helping to organise a Handmade Christmas Market this year for my local area as we have alot of talented crafters! I will be having a stall there so have been making felt Christmas tree decorations ready to take along.
I wanted to do a few different ones from last years - I get bored of making the same things over and over!! These are what I have made so far
A gingerbread house
I used a pattern from Auntie Pitty Pat's for the elf and altered it alittle to my own requirements. I love this little elf!!
For the last few years I have been wanting to make cinnamon dough tree decorations but all the recipes are American and use an apple sauce mix usually a brand called Motts? I am wondering if I could use the British apple sauce that you get in jars in the UK instead - does anyone know if it's the same? Have any of you in the UK tried to make them using this as a substitute and if so were the results good? I love the smell of cinnamon especially at Christmas!!
