ever felt that festive feeling?

Our one-woman design department has into overdrive lately. Hyperdrive! Sister Outlaw Julianne is getting us thinking about the you-know-what season.

Love it or hate it, the Christmas season is nearly upon us.

Don't know about you, but we're prone to a sense of dread about the consumer-fest that happens in the lead-up to the festive season every year.

We're getting around the dread by trying to do our thing in a handmade, gentle manner.

Christmas ornaments can be cheerful but mass-produced, sometimes lasting only a few weeks before making their way to landfill. . .
or, they can be handmade, from largely recycled materials, and last for generations.

We present our range of xmas ornament kits.

Each kit contains enough to make up two ornaments. Vary the colours, so that you end up with a pair of slightly different but matching ones. Lovely! Your hand-stitched ornaments will differ from anybody else's, as we make up the kits from whatever is to hand.

In fact, that's part of the joy of our business - the packing! We sister outlaws relish making one kit different from its sibling. Obsessively so, sometimes! We put our kits together with love, and sometimes have to wrestle with our own willpower after a packing session, otherwise we'd take home the lot ourselves!

Here are our new offerings for the festive season: a choice of six wee ornaments to sit in a festive tree, or to dangle from a mantelpiece or in a doorway.
