First she loves Christmas. So I went with that as my theme. Second she is obsessed with Outlander. So how about some Outlander ornaments?
I made a primitive Santa.
I made Claire and Jamie ornaments to hang on her tree. They are about 6 inches tall. My husband carved the dirk out of a skewer. The pin on Jamie's shoulder is an earring. I've made a lot of ornaments over the past 30 years, but found these to be a real challenge. The hair was the hardest part since they both have curly hair I had to make curly yarn. Jamie was by far the hardest due to all the clothing he has on from the kilt, to the shirt, to the vest, to the belts, to the boots. The buttons on the vest and jacket are seed beads. The belt buckles are buttons. Claire's shawl is made from an old knit hat. Like I said this was definitely a challenge.
Thanks for reading. Now to clean up the disaster in my sewing room and finish working on 2 more primitive Santas and then the Halloween quilt.
