So for months we have been thinking, planning, making our secret Santa creations for our Christmas gifts to us 5 girly friends.
It has been so exciting and such fun to give as well as receive.
The Rules were:
1.It had to be secret.
2.The gift had to be handmade
So, months later, the moment of truth revealed:
The gifts all wrapped up...
I got these amazing napkins in funky green and green dots fabric.
They came with these beautiful napkin rings, made with metal wire, beads, buttons and sequins in funky white,silver, pink and orange. Perfect for my Christmas table!
Emily got this amazing knitted handbag! Isn't it gorgeous!
I gave Abbie a picture frame that I painted green and added dotty ribbon in red and then stuck on some buttons from my lifelong collection of buttons from my Gran and Mum and now my stash. The bag for life i made came with a pouch to keep it in folded in the bottom of your handbag and I made it with lightweight plastic coated showerproof fabric,in funky retro fabric that I found. I used one of my bags as a template.
Jen got the most amazingly huge basket of handmade chocolate truffles.yum.
and this beautifully threaded button necklace.
Rachel was really delighted with her line drawing of her children.
Well done, everyone. Thank you for my gifts and enjoy.
If you want to make some gifts and are stuck for ideas, these are great and all handmade.
Happy Creative Christmas!
