In December, my son's daycare director saw a little Santa doll I made for my 2 year old. She asked my partner, "Oh, do you think she'd make us a nativity set for the kids to play with?" "Oh, sure!" my partner said, "DeAnna just knocks these things out left and right!"

(Did you all just cringe with me? Thank you.) But I was actually quite happy to do it, and so of course this turned into a project that has taken over my life over the past four weeks. I have probably spent 60 hours on this -- a couple hours here and there in the evenings and MANY hours each weekend. I'm delighted with how the project turned out, but not as happy with the photos. I think I need to make a light box to do it right.

So here is the story:

As shepherds


were watching their sheep

(I may make a few more so they have a respectable flock)

an angel appeared before them


and said, "Go see the baby. And his mom and dad."


"You will know them by their very tired donkey."


"You will find the baby lying in a manger lined with Fun Fur."


Three kings arrived.


I guess they could all fit on one camel.


They brought gifts.
(I made a box of gold (Glitterspun yarn), a silver bucket-y type thing, and a lame basket of some peach yarn, as if frankincense is peach ... I think I'm going to re-do the lame basket, so just picture something cool. What I made isn't as cool as what you're thinking of.)

And then a giant attacked!


I've never done a big project like this before, and I would love feedback! Thanks for looking!

FANTASTIC!

But I think the wise men need at least one more camel and the shepherds do need a few more sheep.

I really like the robes you have on the wise men, the colors are great.
