My nativity set to hang up this christmas! Got the idea from a blog online and 3 templates that i've attached. I made my own star and angel to add to my collection. They are so cute and look great as they are all the same size!
I started the by using the template to make Joseph, Mary and Jesus. I used the colours of the felt with the same colours of cotton so that the lines were not noticable.
Next I made the shephard and the sheep. After doing the first one this one was pretty easy. I did the same with the template and the same colours of cotton to stitch them on to each other.
All of these have just a black piece of felt as the back. I also used the same type of ribbon to make a hanger for them all.
This one was the hardest, so many bits of felt to sew on! I did it all by hand. I did the big wise man first before the little ones to get the angles correct.
There was not a template for an angel, but I just thought my collection couldn't be without one so I made my own in the same style and shape as the others. I also stuck with the same black felt for the back of the decoration so they all match.
I made a simple easy yellow star with the same ribbon to hang it up to finish off my collection. I stuffed them all easily when stitching the black felt pieces on the back.
I might add a donkey or some more sheep in the future but for now I'm happy with these.
I had saved this photo from the same blog as the template which is simular to the shapes and style.
This is also a photo I saved from the same blog of their felt parts before being sewn up.
