Flannel Reindeers

My daughter Nienna is doing an Enterprise at school next term and they have to make things to sell at a Christmas craft fair to raise money for a class trip. We've come up with lots of ideas and thought it would be good to try a few out. Our favourite one was these gorgeous flannel and soap reindeers.
To make them you need a flannel and bar of soap. Put the soap in the middle of the flannel and then roll the front and back corners and perch the rolls on top of the soap. Then gather up the other two corners and tie with ribbon to make the ears. We made antlers using pipe cleaners and pushed them into the top.
 Then stick on googly eyes and a pom pom nose. Theo added a bell to his reindeer and a pipe cleaner mouth.
I hope you like them as much as we do!
