Customise Your Own Christmas Jumper!



It seems like only yesterday that we were celebrating Halloween, but with Christmas less than six weeks away Love Your Clothes' brilliant new "12 Jumpers of Christmas" competition is a great way to start preparing!

Christmas jumpers have become so popular in recent years that every high street retailer now has their own range, and they're certainly cashing in on a lucrative market - research has revealed that over 10 million people in the UK are likely to buy a Christmas jumper this festive season, costing in excess of £300 million. But rather than spending money and adding to the already enormous mound of Christmas junk you'll likely never use again, why not get creative and upcycle your own jumper this Christmas, with the chance to win a Janome 2200xt sewing machine worth £129!

To enter, just decorate a pre-owned jumper or cardigan with a Christmas theme (use your own or visit your local Oxfam store) and send a picture of your handiwork to loveyourclothes@wrap.org.uk by Monday 7th December. The jumper should be washable and any added decorations removable, so that it can be reworn again and again throughout the year.

There are prizes for second and third place, and all 12 winning entries will be featured on the Love Your Clothes website during December, where you can also find templates, tips and tutorials to provide some inspiration.

Do you already own a Christmas jumper? Are they best left up in the loft or an essential part of that festive feeling?
