Jingle all the way…
“Living in a rural Scottish town where the wildlife is abundant, it’s impossible not to be inspired. I try to capture as much of it as possible in my designs, but I have to admit, the deer is my favourite subject of all.
This reindeer decoration is a colourful homage to its wild counterpart. I’ve taken one of my soft sculpture designs and simplified it, making it easy for makers of all levels to sew. The pom poms are such a fun addition, and the blanket and collar give plenty of opportunity for customising. This little love is getting centre stage on my tree this year!”
