Home made Christmas jumper

So last Christmas a couple of my friends and I decided to make our own Christmas jumpers! And because I only started this blog last May I thought I would blog about it this Christmas. Now I didn't make the actually jumper I just decorated one so it's not as skilled as you may think!

What we used -

  • Primark mens jumper - we chose these because they were bigger then the womens.
  • Felt preferably with a sticky back - we got ours from John Lewis
  • Needle and thread
  • Primark beaded bracelet set - this was just for my jumper.
So how did we do it? Well it was pretty simple really, we all chose a different design and got going. For my Christmas pudding (yes I chose the easiest) my brown and white felt has a sticky back so I just had to cut and stick the shapes on. Then for the holly and had to sew those but I did it quite badly but hey it's a Christmas jumper they are always badly down. And then finally the collar, I'm obsessed with anything that has a Peter pan collar for I cut and stuck the white felt on and then with the bracelet set cut one of the bracelets and sown the beads on individually! That was the time consuming part due to being rubbish with a needle and thread! Finish. Simple isn't it?

Here's a photo of everyone elses jumpers, there's are more artist then mine :)

 I hope you like my Christmas jumper! And you're starting to feel a little bit more festive!
