Hello, I'm Tors from Girl meets Wolf (previously Welsh Pixie) and I'm not sure about anyone else but I'm having a bit of a panic.

Wouldn't you know it, I've left it all til the last minute - a downside of my profession, no time left for anything else! And wouldn't you know it, the first thing I complete isn't even a present for my family, but for my friend's little boy! I'm sure the Law of Sod has something to do with this.

This hobby-reindeer came from Tone Finnanger's book, Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle. Tone's creations are fabulous and really very easy to make. If you're a fan of Mollie Makes you'll have seen some of her work in this month's issue.

The stick is some cheap dowling from B&Q that I've left unpainted because I prefer it and also can't be arsed with all the painting so soon after painting a new-to-me dresser that took two weeks to finish. It'll be a while before I pick up a paintbrush again I think.

The nose and eyes are drawn on rather wonkily with some fabric pens, the ribbon came from eBay (and don't I just love it!) and the head itself is stuffed with hypo-allergenic toy stuffing from Hobbycraft. All in all this was a rather cheap and not particularly time consuming (although a little fiddly) project to complete.
