Nativity Softies





Last year while wandering around one of my favourite stores (Spotlight of course!) I spotted this fabric with nativity figures printed on it.  It came with instructions on how to sew it all together to make your own nativity set - and since we've always wanted to have a cute nativity set but could never quite afford one, I decided this cheaper option looked pretty good.

Alas, Christmas came and went in 2008 and although I had cut out the figures, I never quite got around to sewing it all together... so this year I decided I just had to finish it before Christmas 2009!

Today, it was finally finished, and the kids have enjoyed playing with it - even Master 10 who was a little embarrased when I caught him on camera having a play.

Baby Jesus has been thrown around the room a few times (I hope he doesn't get lost) - but other than that I think it's been worth the effort.
