I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We sure did, breakfast out with family, then back home for lunch with the in-laws, then out again with family for tea! Today we braved the Boxing Day sales, and did a few things in town, and we are now just lazing about!
I have LOTS to share, and deciding on where to start is hard! So, I will start with my shop's Secret Santa! I decided to have a theme, the gift must be handmade of course, and must contain one of the following: a zip, applique, stitchery or trim. There were just over 30 ladies which was fantastic. They dropped a wrapped gift off, and then they were able to pop back in a week before Christmas to pick an allocated gift up.
Here is what I made. A zippy pouch:
With a stitched zipper pull
A scissor holder
Pin cushion / needle case
Here it is closed up
And all together!
I have heard back from most of the ladies, and they are all very happy with the swap! Wonder what I can come up with next year?
I will be back soon to show you some other swaps!
