Thanks for the inspiration for this post's title, Kirstie Allsopp!
I know that it's a bit late in coming, but I wanted to show you some of the Christmas presents I made for friends and family. I guess it would have made more sense to share these with you BEFORE Christmas, but I didn’t want to risk spoiling the surprise for any of the recipients who may have sneaked a look on here! Now that all of the gifts have been given, though, it safe to post photos.....
[a make-up bag for Mom.....]
[... and a make-up bag for Nan]
[a felt flower corsage for my sister]
[a case for Nan's new mobile phone]
[my first felting project - a brooch for Mom]
[a hat for a friend's baby - great
free pattern from the lovely Susie F]
[Köln/Cologne - giant letters for my
sister, who moved there in the summer]
[a carry-all bag - also for my sister]
There were quite a few MORE handmade pressies too. But these were finished-off after we left for the UK, and I didn’t get around to photographing them. I knitted a scarf for my granddad, a hat for my nephew, and some THINGS for my dad and Simon (they were quite funny and might give you a laugh, so I’ll get some photos and share with you another time.....). I also made a project bag for my mother-in-law, an iphone case for my sister, some Christmas decorations.....
Phew! That sounds like a LOT now I’ve listed them all! I’d better get started on NEXT year’s Christmas gifts NOW..... ;-)
I’ll be back soon, to show you some of the goodies that Santa left for ME.....
