Sew your own Christmas Nativity

Christmas is right around the corner, and I'm getting ready to pull out my decorations. It's easy to get caught up in the tinsel and baubles, and lose sight of the meaning of Christmas. That's why I like to include a nativity scene in my decorating. The kids like to play with the characters, and retell the story of Christmas (or create their own wonderful stories). It gives a greater connection to what Christmas is all about.

I love handmade Christmas decorations, and here are my favourite Christmas nativity scene sewing patterns:
