Along with the Christmas Crochet I also managed to get some Christmas sewing done between attending nativity plays, running the kids to various parties etc!
I made a make up / toiletries bag for my cousin, which I filled with a crocheted headband and some hair slides,
and a dancing shoes bag for my mother in law who loves going ballroom dancing.
Both were made using modified patterns form the Cath Kidston Sew book, a great book with very detailed instructions and one of my most used sewing books. The fabric for the toilet bag is an Ikea pillow case lined with an old shower curtain and the shoe bag is made for fairtrade organic cotton from here ( a fantastic shop).
I also russled up two covered notebook's using this fantastic tutorial.
This one is for my oldest friend who has just got engaged so embroidered 'I do' on the front
and this one for my sister who is pregnant with my first niece or nephew,
I think I may be more excited than her at the moment, roll on July and teeny baby cuddles!!
