Bee Sew Inspired Gnomette Doll

Je kunt natuurlijk altijd de winkel inrennen om kerstversiering te kopen maar ook kun je zelf aan de slag gaan. Deze Bee Sew Inspired Gnomette Doll is een leuk voorbeeld van een zelfgemaakte  kerstversiering. Als je een middagje over hebt en wat restanten dan staat deze Gnomette Doll vanavond all tussen de andere versieringen.
You can always go to a shop to buy Christmas decorations but making them is much more fun. The Bee Sew Inspired Gnomette Doll is a good example of a homemade Christmas decoration. You only need one afternoon and some leftover fabrics to make this fun doll.

Oh Gnome You Didn’t

Zelfgemaakte kerstversieringen is altijd leuk om te doen. Ondertussen staat er van alles in ons huis. Maar er kan nog altijd meer bij. Zoals deze Oh, Gnome, You Didn’t van Sarah Schira.
Homemade Christmas decorations are unique. As soon as I saw the knitted Oh, Gnome, You Didn’t I knew he would be added to my collection.

Homemade Christmas gnome using discarded socks

You probably read it in one of my previous Nikolaus Tasche that I wanted to make a gnoom using discarded socks. A gnoom is part of the Scandinavian history and culture. He also has a place in their Christmas tradition as well. Time to make one. One can easily find enough patterns to make one out of fabrics but not out of socks. I made a kind of sketch and a proof model using pins. When I had something looking like a gnoom I made a paper pattern using the model as a guide line.
After the pattern was made, the body was cut and sewn together. My gnoom also has a base in the form of a circle.

EiWeih Nikolaus for small gifts

There isn’t a big difference between Sinterklaas and Father Christmas. Both are spend with family and friends. Often presents are found near the fire place or under the Christmas tree. These Presents can be big or small, cheap or expensive.
Children in the Netherlands are allowed to put a shoe near the fire place in the evening a few times before the fifth of December. Then they sing a song or two and the next morning the find a small gift (some sweet, pencils, a pair of socks) in their shoe.
Christmas stockings are for Christmas and they usually hang above the fire place. Father Christmas fills them with small gifts and one can find many of these so called ‘stocking fillers’ in lots of shops.
