One of the most anticipated annual family traditions of each Christmas is decorating the tree. Instead of draping the fir with tired tinsel and baubles that have seen better days, why not make a dozen of your own cute felt tree ornaments designed exclusively by Cath Kidston. Accompanying this paperback book, which includes all the sewing and embroidery instructions you need, this kit contains a selection of coloured felt in six different shades, pompons, ribbon and embroidery thread that can be made up into a delightful selection of 12 different ornaments including a Christmas Cottage, Ribbon-Wrapped Gift, Striped Candy Cane, Snowman, Reindeer, Christmas Pudding, Holly Leaves and, of course, a Festive Stanley. The accompanying booklet details exactly how to use the enclosed pack of materials to create the ornaments, with each stage detailed clearly in explanatory step-by-step photographs. These delightful festive hanging decorations will undoubtedly become cherished family heirlooms that you will enjoy year upon year.
