Some handmade gifts...and a market tomorrow!

I have been busy this week making the rest of my handmade goodies for Christmas, I have to say that I feel very relieved now that all my sewing is I only have to sew what I feel like.  I do have my Christmas baking to do but I have plenty of time for that.

First I made my special girlfriends all a cosmetic purse along with an appliqued owl face washer and a handmade soap.  I was so happy with the result, these are going to be on my good gift list for future birthdays etc.

I made an art tote for a great boy named Tom.  It was a new pattern for me but I was happy with the end product and I think Tom was too.

 Inside I made pencil slots along one side and I filled them with colours and sketch pencils.

 On the other side I left a large pocket to hold an A4 sized sketch pad.

 I also made the lovely little Sierra a Princess and the Pea set along with storybook.  I just love these sets they are soooo cute and easy to make.

Today we made our gingerbread house and it turned out well, I have yet to take photos of it, so I will do that tomorrow. 

I have the car packed ready for markets tomorrow, so lets hope the rain stays away and I make it!!  Come by and grab any last minute gifts you need.


  1. Tom loves his art tote and was a little creative with it today- already put to good use!
    Thanks again for a great day, it's always good to catch up with good friends and champagne!!!!

  2. What a great day! I love all my little gifts and the girls have been drawing and playing with their gifts! I'm posting today, been a little under the weather!
