Gift bags

Hello everyone, Just popping in quickly today with some photos of a few small bags that I made at the weekend.



Due to our horrible wet weather, on Sunday I decided to try and finish some Christmas sewing so to be able to concentrate on getting decorations put up and important shopping done this week.  Hate leaving everything to the last minute when the shops are packed.



I found some sparkly fabric that I think was part of a child´s fancy dress in bygone times and decided to add a bit of lace and ribbon to sew up a couple of small bags for I don´t know what, but that always come in handy.



I made two different types although I like the drawstring fastening best.  Have loads more of the fabric left for other projects.  As they are neutral colours, I am linking this post to Wendy´s Simply Neutrals.

Twelve Days of  Christmas update.


I am still busy with this free design by Paulette Stewart, we are now up to the Tenth Day and I have started sewing the surround as it is going to be finished in a rush if I want it done for Christmas.

So many lovely Christmas things that fellow bloggers are making, I am taking note of designs to do next year.

  Thank you for passing by.  Hope you will visit again next week on the 17th when I am taking part in the Advent Calendar blog hop organised by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching,  Good idea to pop over and see what the other participants are doing.
