Christmas sewing

This is what I have been up to since my last post, well sort of, I also have an orange linen top nearly finished that I cut out on 1 December, but more about that one later.

Again this year, I left it to the last minute to produce Christmas gifts, even though I knew very early in the year that this is what I would be making.

First up was the Spice of Life bag for my very good friend with the fabric purchased whilst we were at the ASG Convention in Adelaide.  This is the 3rd time I have made this bag, so it was pretty straight forward.




Then it was time again to sew for the nieces and nephews and late last year I found this great tutorial for Circle Zip Earbud Pouch by Erin Erickson after seeing a whole lot of them on various blogs thinking they would be perfect for this Christmas.  My friends can tell you that at every craft show I attend this year the search was on for themed fat quarters and the effort was very much appreciated by the recipients.


Lastly was a necklace for my Sister as she already knew that she was getting the bag so using some 10mm Black Rutifated Quartz and 8mm black beads I made this for her.


I also found via Pinterest this great tutorial for making a Necklace Display by Bea Graansma.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I plan on being back before the New Year!

I agree, I am becoming a relative next Christmas. I am a recent recipient of a tiny coin purse gift and I just luv mine. They are all such precious and perfect gifts. Very well done and Happy New Year to you, Sharon.

All wonderful gifts. I particularly like the earbud pouches. And I need one, so I'll download the tutorial and one day, make myself one.

That fabric on the bag is just gorgeous! Whoever found it must be a genius. ;)

Those earbud pouches are great! I checked out the tutorial, it's so detailed and such a good gift. I'll be making some for sure. Beautiful gifts and lovely work that inspires me as always.
