So, what did my folks get for Christmas? Take a peek:
Evening Bag pattern.
This City Bag was a present for one of my sisters-in-law.
I made several Clutch Bags in different fabrics for different people:
And this Sling Bag in a lovely fabric called Mojo was for my other sister-in-law:
Not wishing to leave him out I made my brother-in-law a tie using a Burda pattern and some wonderful Japanese fabric:
Last but not least, this Origami Bag (my name for it because I couldn't read the Chinese name!) was made as a nightdress case for my niece in Australia using instructions found online:
Having not sewn anything in years, I more than made up for it in the space of just a couple of months. After a short break for the holidays, I started trying out a few more patterns and thinking about different things to make.
But that's for another post.
The Christmas presents seemed to go down well which was a huge relief on the day!
