I took the time to make my nativity scene figurines this year, and I'm happy I did it as I was without nativity scene for the past few years. I cross stitched all the characters taking inspiration from images I googled, with some modifications and personal touches. I used a boreal forest theme since I live in the land of boreal forests (canada).






Made my own sky, trees, stars with aluminum foil. Pretty much all the materials were recycled or already in my stash so hardly spent any $ on it Just quite a bit of time but totally worth it Smiley

Sky

Some trees in the making

Picking fabrics


I picked different fabrics to use as the back of the figurines and stuffed them, and sewed them together with a sewing machine and some hand stitching.Here are details.

Holy Family

Forest Animals

Magi

Backs

Lovely details! It's wonderful how you created a 3D world with them in it rather than simply framing them or hanging it on the wall!
