Christmas Bauble pattern



I know, Christmas feels like ages away, but it will be upon us very soon. I love everything about it, but especially decorating and covering my home with colour and light. This woodland Santa has come back to the shop with me for a few adjustments before he sets up home in the window, and he is holding the new baubles I have made, for your enjoyment. The pattern is below. Pop along to my Facebook page for the giveaway to win one of my finished baubles.

And watch out for the stars. Literally. I have stars as well.
