Oh Oh Oh Santa is coming

Scroll down for english, please! 


Já começa a cheirar a Natal por todos os cantos. Cá em casa, já fiz a minha lista e já comecei a preparar as prendas deste ano. Ainda não decorei, não consigo fazê-lo antes de Dezembro, mas já tenho algumas ideias de coisas que gostava de fazer este ano. 

It's starting to smell like Christmas everywhere. As for me, I have my presents list done and I have started preparing some. I haven't started with the decorations yet, I just can't before December, although I have a good idea of which things I want to make. 


Entretanto surgiu a oportunidade de um teste diferente, um saco em forma de Pai Natal (ou duende, ou bonecos de neve - fica ao vosso critério - vejam mais aqui). Eu ainda tenho esperança de conseguir fazer mais (tenho sempre mais planos que tempo nestas alturas), para que cada um dos miúdos receba um. A ideia é encher com mimos que podem ser cartões com ideias de atividades para fazermos juntos, doces, ou outros miminhos que lhes agrade. 

In the mean while I was able to get to test a different pattern, a Santa stocking bag (or elf, or snowmen as seen on the test group - it's up to you - see more here). I hope I still get to make a second one (I always have more plans than time to get them done by this time), so each of my kids get its own. The idea is to fill it up with treats which can be activity cards for us to make together, sweets and every other little treat they like. 


A minha parte preferida é a barba do Pai Natal. Não tinha tecido com pêlo (branco, isto é) e pensei em usar no seu lugar esta lã que tenho por cá há anos. Comprei-a para outro Pai Natal, vejam aqui. Juntei cada fio um a um. Depois costurei tudo junto. Gosto de ver a barba presa em baixo ou solta. O bigode e o cabelo foram feitos da mesma forma. Levei uma eternidade para o fazer, mas fiquei tão orgulhosa quando terminei. E mais uma vez... foi um grande empurrão à criatividadetrabalhar com aquilo que já tinha por casa. 

My favorite thing about my own Santa is the beard. I was running out of fur fabric (white, it is) and thought about this yarn I had for a few years. I bought it for another Santa, see it here. I attached each piece of it, one by one. Then I sewed it together. I like it tight on the bottom or just loose. The mustach and hair were made the same way. It took me forever but I was so proud once I finished. And again... hails for creativity boost everytime I have to work with what I already have. 


O molde traz dois tamanhos diferentes de pompons, que eu fiz em branco e vermelho. Não os acham tão fofos? Adoro pompons, serei a única? Aprendi a fazê-los com a minha mãe quando era criança, e gosto deles desde então. 

The pattern comes with two different pompom sizes, which I did in white and red. Aren't they so  cute? Am I the only one to love pompoms? I learned how to make them when I was very little, with my mom, and I've loved them ever since.
