Tell us a bit about Han­nah Hand Makes!

I de­sign fun and colour­ful cross stitch pat­terns and turn them into kits. I try to keep my de­signs easy so any­one can do them re­gard­less of their ex­pe­ri­ence or how hec­tic their life is.

What in­spires you de­sign-wise about Christ­mas?

I love all the colours; ev­ery Christ­mas has such dif­fer­ent themes that you can re­ally play with dif­fer­ent colour palettes. I also get a lot of in­spi­ra­tion from clothes, par­tic­u­larly fab­u­lous Christ­mas jumper pat­terns!

Do you have any new de­signs planned for this year?

I’m plan­ning a Baby’s First Christ­mas pat­tern, a Ru­dolph pat­tern and a Christ­mas jumper pat­tern. I’m also run­ning a Christ­mas stitch-along on my Face­book group with another new Deck the Halls pat­tern. It starts on 1 Oc­to­ber and we will all hope­fully be fin­ished mid-Novem­ber, ready to hang up our fin­ished hoops in time for Christ­mas!

What’s your favourite part of the fes­tive pe­riod?

It’s so hard to just choose one, this is my favourite time of year. But it is prob­a­bly dec­o­rat­ing the tree and house. I even love un­tan­gling the fairy lights!

What stitchy presents are you hop­ing to make – and do you have your eye on any­thing for your­self?

I’m go­ing to be adding some stitchy per­son­alised de­signs onto clothes and bags. And I would love a crafty mag­a­zine sub­scrip­tion as a gift.

Do you have a favourite tree dec­o­ra­tion – and why?

I don’t have one favourite but ev­ery year we buy our kids a new hand­made dec­o­ra­tion and I love how they add some­thing spe­cial and per­sonal to the tree.
