Is it too early. Not for crafters.

It's August but it's not too early to get ready for the Holiday craft shows or just making presents. I will slowly start releasing holiday patterns. This Christmas plate was cut from a wooden craft plate you can buy at better craft stores. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby. You can order it online at this LINK to wooden plate at Hobby Lobby.

When I started this design I thought it was big enough for the plate but as you can see I made it too small. In the pattern pdf there are four sizes for you to choose from. These wooden 12" plates are consistent in outside diameter but the inner cutout varies from plate to plate. That's another reason I made it four different sizes.

The plates are only $7.99. If you enjoy this design and don't mind buying the plates let me know and I'll design some more designs like this one. They can come a little rough and might need some finish sanding to get them ready to scroll.

These could also be customized with a family name to make great gifts. Just a thought so let me know what you think and maybe I can do that also for a small fee.

I also have an idea that might work to make our own plates. It's easy with a lathe but maybe we can build them with our scroll saws and a router. I'll work on it as I get some time.
