A cute little hand-stitched felt brooch for your lapel or bag. Take a scrap of soft wool-blend felt and a handful of tiny buttons. Add a sprinkling of old-fashioned embroidery with silky threads. Pop a silver-plated brooch pin on the back and voilà.
Danish tradition: Weaved Heart Basket Patterns - Much more challenging but would look great on a tree. The cool thing about them, is you can staple a handle on them and then fill with treats and hang on Christmas tree.
