Christmas crafting results.

Here's the bits I managed to make in time for Santa to deliver them:

first up, the stockings. note to self, if you're going to make bigger stockings to replace those which are too small, TAKE MEASUREMENTS. these turned out to be pretty much the same size as the originals, but appreciated none the less. the bigger red one on the left is the one auntie Mary made me in 1986.



Remember the Cath Kidston-esque sewing kit I wanted to make? well, I did it!
needle book:
scissor pouch:
and a muffin sized cupcake pincushion:

And because I just realised I never gave you a full sized picture of the ornament exchange decoration I made, here it is:
I didn't manage to make everything I had planned, scented hearts and some padded coathangers, or the dreaded Christmas tree skirt, so I have some projects for next year. how I'll manage them I don't know, I'll have to sew all through my honeymoon or something!

  3. Lovely lovely lovely! Genius idea on the cupcake case too! I'm glad that you still have stockings, we do in my family too, my husband thinks I'm so odd for maintaining such a tradition despite being well into my 20s!
