Pakkekalender II

This is what went toVisitsen for the Pakkekalender swap.

 She mentioned in her previous posts that the color of the moment was sth close to pink/pale purple, so I made some christmas tree decorations in these tones, wrapped in a handmade little pocket

I used a bag bought at "Søstrene Grene" and converted it into a pocket, so I had at hand a matching zipper and handles to make a matching bow 

The tutorial for the knitted balls is from "I like lemon"

These were the most challenging to do as I am not too good at knitting and moreover with two colors! I'm quite happy with the result :-)

Then I used an idea seen on the christmas issue of "Crafts Beautiful magazine" , a genius idea using wires of different dimensions !

And at last decorations made out of salt dough and covered with some paint I found in Panduro that imitates the effect of snow
