BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Tuesday, 21 October 2014
The holiday season is nearly upon us... 
I'm *not* a rush-into-Christmas kind of gal, but as an artisan and as a person who likes to make gifts for my family and friends, it is time to get thinking about holiday creations!

The blog has been quiet the last week or so due to the passing of my mother-in-law and our spending time with family away from home.
But I'm back and trying to get up to speed.
I'm working out my crafting plans for our own gift giving (my daughter has fallen for an American Girl so I have bedding and clothing to make...) which I'll share soon, but for now I thought I would share some recent needlefelting and ideas for you!

{{You can also visit our TUTORIALS page for holiday crafting ideas here on the blog from past years}}.

Two more custom crowns have been completed in the last week:

And it is Nativity time again!
Each year we offer a limited number of custom made Nativity Sets.
A BTRT tradition, found in homes around the world!
NATIVITY SET including the 8 figures pictured:
(you may indicate preferred color scheme ie. earth tones, jewel tones, pastels or brights)
• Mary with Jesus in arms OR out of arms as in photo 4~ if you do not indicate Mary will be made holding the baby.
• Joseph
• Angel
• Three Wise Men/ Kings
• Two Shepherds
Ranging 3-5" high.

{{A trio of sheep can be added to your set,contact us to add them.}}

{Looking for something smaller? We will be listing 'Holy Family' sets (Mary, Joseph and Baby) as they are made, in both the mini and standard sizes.}

Made from 100% new, clean wool (various types, corriedale, shetland, merino), our sets are handmade completely with needle felting.
They are firm to withstand years of play and display, but soft and so touchable!
No frames or wires, mean no risks for toddlers.

All figures stand on their own and wool warms up beautifully in a child's hands for a natural and lively play experience. Children learn best when they can engage the story with their hands, and these pieces give them a chance to hold and imagine the story, and act it out, too. The figures have featureless faces (in the Waldorf tradition) so that children are open to all possibilities of emotion and experience when they play.

Not recommended for children who still mouth their toys (or not without close supervision).

Allow 2-3 weeks for completion.
