Broomhilda The Witch
This kooky witch is ready for the spooky season! Carrying a bag of tricks and treats, she wears a wonky hat, dress and bloomers made from brightly coloured Halloween fabrics.
Jolly Holly Garland
Bring the wintry outdoors indoors – without the chilly breeze! This jolly wool-felt and fabric garland features bunches of holly and berries, cheeky snowmen and cheery robins.
Mrs Fizziwig
A charming Dickensian mouse, Mrs Fizziwig is getting ready to browse the Christmas street markets. Made from fur fabric, she wears a wool coat and carries her baby mouse in her bag.

These friendly fellows will brighten up any festive display! Using wool and wool felt, make a twiggy-armed snowman (9”), a jingle-bell reindeer (5½”) and a rosy-cheeked penguin (4”).
