 Just a bit of felt and baubles!

Happy Christmas Eve y’all! I do hope you’re all healthy and happy and wrapped up ideally in some sort of fabulously fun xmas jumper like the one I’m sporting in my post today! If not, then you can super easily make one, also like I did! This is what I wore on my wonderful day out around London last weekend. (see my post below – it includes many Santas) as well as to work at ASOS on Christmas-jumper-wearing Day. What a great idea for a day, and even better that it raises money for charity. Plus, even even better that I came 3rd in the competition and won myself a bottle of fantastically yellow-sweet wine! Woohoo!

My jumper started life as a Lodgemead cable knit Barbour, which I wore in this autumnal post. But when I realised (much to my dismay) that I didn’t own an xmas jumper, it became the canvas for my reindeer applique. Simply gather yourself some felt and mini baubles, cut out some felt shapes and lightly tack-stitch them to your jumper like I did in this photo on Instagram so that you can unpick it again come spring.

I was lucky enough to have been given a deer template at the Rumour Pr xmas jumper party at Brixton East where the brilliant DIY brand Buttonbag supplied us with paper shapes, needles and thread and a whole hog of decorations to throw on for good measure. The abundance of champagne, numerous cheeses and good chitchat weren’t conducive to serious jumper customisation, so I finished it off at 11pm before work the next day but I think it turned out just about alright!

    That sweater is TOO cute—stop it! And then, when you’re done stopping, give me those shoes!

    Oh, yay, that’s a great idea! Cause there are gonna be so many tossed away Xmas jumpers come January. Mainly from Primarni. Next year I will surely lightly decorate a jumper for December then undecorate it on Boxing day!
