Crafty Christmas

Christmas this year took a little more effort than previous years, by that I mean I put in more effort into many of the gifts I gave because, I made them instead of buying them off the shelf. Remember those little bags I made earlier? Well I made a few more and they looked smashing, though I have to admit, some just didn’t want to go together so I came up with a couple little tricks and they came together so well.

My next little spurt of creativity was also in the form of a bag but one a little different, while its not ‘shop quality’ I have got the basics of it done and can see where I can make improvements, it was a real boost to my confidence as I didn’t have a pattern and I was just using some left over material to put it together, just to make a ‘demo model’ you could say.

This one at the moment, as soon as you put your bits and bobs inside, it loses its shape, something I need to work on with my next attempt. Aside from that, I think its pretty good for just going off an idea in my head 🙂
