Sewing, crochet, crafts, accessories, baking, tutorials,



Just a quick post today to show you a few of the things I’ve made for my #sewingsanta recipient (who remains anonymous!).

I spent the maximum limit of ten pounds ages ago so I thought I’d take some time to sew some little gifts with fabric and bits from my stash. This way it’s not cheating because they haven’t cost a penny other than my time spent creating them.

These are the added extras – and boy have I had fun!


This needlecase is made from remnants of silk – red on the outside and gold on the inside.


A cute little mandala key ring using scraps of felt and ribbon.


My very first attempt at needle felting – a tiny Robin brooch.


Shown briefly the other day, this pocket tissue cover was created from leftover fabric from a book bag project.


I had planned on including these pure lambswool fingerless gloves too, but they just sold on Folksy so I will have to make some more:)


There are more items to come because I’ve never had so much pleasure making random things just for the fun of it!

How’s your #sewingsanta parcel coming along?
