A Vintage Christmas ♥ Comfort & Joy #4 ...

A little bit of felt
some embroidery floss
and a sweet little star covered box
& you have the perfect little, last minute, handmade gift.
Sandwich two pieces of felt together and embroider tiny little stars all over to create 2 blankets...
create a pillow just big enough for a mouse to rest his head and add a bit of embroidery.  Tuck mouse into the blankets ♥
~*~sweet dreams little one ~*~
*this is a great little "early Christmas gift" ... read Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house, not a creature was stirring , not even a mouse ~ a little incentive to help your little ones settle into bed Christmas Eve* 
I absolutely love my Epson label maker ... it has come in handy for so many things!
I've made address labels, and card stickers, printed them out for gift jars and added them to handmade ornaments...
You can choose decorative frames, change the font, add symbols and images ... so I'm always experimenting.  For the top of the star box I printed out a sweet sentiment ♥ and for the inside, just above the pillow printed Sweet Dreams xo
I wish you a tea
and jammies
kind of day

Those are so adorable Deb!... did you make the little mice too?... I love them!... I am down with the flu and Tessy has another bladder infection, so we are staying in and trying to stay warm and feel better... Merry Christmas to you and your family!... Tessy sends doggie kisses to "her" guy Archer, xoxo... Julie Marie and Tessy

hi Monique ~ oh yes ...you would LOVE the label maker ~ it has come in so handy! Night before Christmas tree ornaments sound adorable ~ I have a few tree ornaments with a Night before Christmas theme {grandfather clock with a little mouse inside is my favourite} :-) a child at heart especially at Christmas time ♥ Wishing you a Merry Christmas.

hello Julie marie ~ oh dear...so sorry to hear you AND Tessy are not feeling well. Hope you feel better for Christmas.
Lots of cute patterns to be found on line for the mice if you want to make one, all you need is a small piece of felt, some embroidery floss (or even sewing thread) and a bit of stuffing ♥♥
