Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year – in my opinion, anyway! – so this issue we’re going all out with festive ideas galore. I have such eclectic taste when it comes to crafting, which is why you’ll find a mix of makes and inspiration this month. Embrace all-out jazz with a bright stocking and glittery clutch, or opt for something more calming with Sarah Louise Matthews’ home tour, a modern take on seasonal décor. However you like your space to look and feel, there’s always room for a few fun additions at this time of year. No Christmas Day should be without a supersized cracker piñata, and of course, your cute felt pup kit. And when you’re done with the festivities, look ahead to 2020 with your calendar. Filled…

meet the the maker designer - maker manuela is the trani created our adorable christmas pup

“I love the festive season almost as much as I love felt, so designing this little dog was such a treat – I’ve been wanting to create a 3D version of the softies I make for a while now. As it’s winter, I didn’t want him to get too chilly outside, so I made a little Christmas jumper to wear, decorated with trees and snowflakes. And, he’s also got a scarf around his neck to make sure he stays toasty warm on long walks.” Turn to page 92 to find all the instructions for making your kit, including the templates and a handy stitch guide. All you’ll need to add is some black thread to sew his cute face, and you’ve got your very own four-legged felt friend. Manuela is an Italian crafter…
