This months Sewyeah Social Club Make-A-Long are these delightful sets of oversize decorations. I have designed two pairs of decorations, Mrs and Mr Christmas and some retro decorations. Both sets are based on the same template shapes (which made me very happy when I worked that out!) so they have a nice synergy when hung together. The retro decorations are based on the beautiful glassblown ones from the 1950’s. Each decoration is about 16cm tall so make a real statement on the tree. They also work at a reduced size, especially the Christmases which make really cute elves when made at half size. (There is an elf template with excellent ears in this download.)
