The making proved very easy. Sourcing a plain jumper proved frustratingly difficult. I scoured nearly every chain store/ cheapish store to no avail. I ended up purchasing a jumper that was too big from Glasson’s and then cutting it down. Sigh. But to the Christmas aspect!
I started off with this image.
Step two is to grab some scraps of fabric in the appropriate colours. Pin the pattern to the fabric and cut out the basic shapes. You’ll need a face, antlers, white eyes, red nose and ears (which I forgot, oops).
Step three! Arrange the fabric on your jumper and pin it into place.
Four! Grab a sewing machine and zig zag stitch around the edges.
Step Five are the details – sew on black buttons for eyes and bells on the antlers.
Ta da! Feel free to frolic in your jingly jumper all the way home.
