This ornament is inspired by my recent purchase of a vintage Xmas transfer book (refer previous post!). I thought this little guy was adorable and the perfect size for a felt decoration for the tree.
Being an old book first I tested the sample transfers (not something you will often find me doing!) onto different coloured felts to see if it which colour it would show up on. I opted for this caramel as it was sort of a 'deer' colour.
TIPS: With vintage iron on transfers you will probably only be able to get one image from each transfer so make sure you make good use of it! Use a sheet of baking paper between transfer and iron if you are using acrylic felt otherwise it goes all hard.
If your piece of felt is big enough pop it into a hoop to make it easier to stitch ......
...and then get started using any colour and stitch that takes your fancy.
Here is Rudolph in all his glory.
I could have just left it round and added a back to complete the ornamnt but I decided I wanted another layer of colour.
This project has definitely got me into the Christmas crafting mood and I think their will be a distinct deer theme this year as well as gingerbread houses because I just love them too.
Happy Xmas crafting!
