Big & Little Polar Bear Christmas Jumpers

This year I wanted to design my husband and son a matching Christmas jumper each, then came up with the idea of a “big bear & little bear” theme. I have teamed up with the glorious Jennie Maizels iron on patches , which are so much fun for personalising practically anything. The design is to celebrate Save the Children Christmas Jumper day on December 16th.

It’s a great charity to support, by sticking on a daft sweater, signing up and donating £2 to Save the Children (£1 if you’re at school) at you’ll be saving children’s lives, and helping the charity do whatever it takes to make sure the world’s forgotten children get the chance to have a brighter future.

If your festive sweater from last year just isn’t silly enough, why not head to your nearest Save the Children store where they are calling out for people to donate their unwanted Christmas jumpers.

Don’t forget to take your photo in your jumper and Insta me @couturecraft ! Continue Reading

However after attending the Sizzix demonstration at the Hochanda TV launch party, I had a little brain wave. The machine is amazing, it comes in lots of shapes and sizes and cuts endless materials from paper to leather and fabric to balsa wood!
