Felt Nativity


Christmas is not complete without the Nativity scene.
It is a reminder of the reason why we celebrate Christmas.

We have ceramic figurines before but I don't know where it is now, or I guess I had thrown it away.
So I have to have a new one and I decided I would make one instead of buying it.

I was looking for a nativity design that I could hang up in our mini Christmas tree. Hanging it will save me some space and will serve as a tree ornament as well.  

I found this in Flickr. I find it so simple, clean and cute.


I made my own pattern, and used felt as fabric. 
To complete my Nativity Scene characters, I designed  the Three Kings and  the Shepherd and the Sheep. 


I wanted to share to you a tutorial, but I did not take photos while I was doing these.
 It's hard for me to put the process into words, photos would have been easier. 

( I took one photo only during the assembly of the parts.)

But if you want a pattern, just simply leave a comment and I will send you one.

Have a Very Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
