Christmas jumpers have never been more popular. No longer something we are begrudgingly forced to wear by relatives on Christmas Day, we can’t get enough of them these days – so much so that this year they even inspired a new addition to the Turtle Mat Christmas Collection!

In celebration of our new Christmas Jumper Mat we challenged a talented group of crafty bloggers to transform a plain jumper into a Christmas wonder. All of these fantastic Christmas jumpers were created with just a plain knitted jumper and a budget of £5 or less. Click through to find the full tutorial for each and create your own handmade Christmas jumper!
