I’m so glad you guys are enjoying this series! (And thanks for enabling me in my quest for even more vintage Christmas books in 2009.)
I’ve written about my perhaps-a-bit-embarrassing collection of chenille craft books before. Here are a couple holiday ones. You clearly need more chenille in your life.
I find these candles very endearing. That is, until someone gets an eye poked out.
I actually would make these chenille birdies for my tree! How does one create those little chenille feathers, you ask? By taking a strand of that bumpy chenille and cutting apart all the individual bumps. Then you bend them and insert them one at a time into styrofoam.
Well . . . maybe I wouldn’t make these birds.
You have to respect this – chenille embroidery on chenille! That’s some pretty crazy precision at work.
“WHAT?!” (you’re saying) “Why is this here?” For two reasons: it gave me a chuckle, and frankly, if somebody had a nice couple of hours making it, it’s A-OK in my book.
I do like these little reindeer – although, I’ve never wished for googly-eyes more. (They get that Mr. Stay Puft shape because they’re made of pom-poms strung onto wire. Which, when you think about it, has possibilities.)
Oh, I have resembled this doll so many times this season…
