Happy holidays, everyone! I know not everyone celebrates Christmas or is into Christmas trees, but if you are, this is the post for you!
I finally delved into my pattern trio from Lalylala (Lydia Tresselt) and made the Christmas tree (the other two are angel and candle)! It’s amazing how when I buy patterns, I have every intention of making the item RIGHT NOW and it rarely ever happens. Timing is important when it comes to crafting, it seems.
Anyhow, I decided I would make up a little tree for my office’s holiday gift exchange and thought it would be festive and cheery enough that most people would like it, whoever ended up with it.
I’ve made enough amigurumi that the actual doll itself didn’t take too long – a handful of hours. The sewing of the beads with invisible thread was the task that took a lot of patience. Thankfully, if you do it while you’re watching holiday movies or something, it doesn’t feel like a chore. So I would say this pattern is advanced beginner, depending on your sewing skills. Of course you don’t have to sew anything onto it. The tree itself is adorable as is.
Here’s my first little tree doll — I bought more beads so I can make more of these cuties. Makers, have you tried this pattern yet?
Happy holidays to you, whatever you celebrate! (Or don’t! Merry Whatever!)
