Christmas is coming
Most of the doors of my advent calendar are opened now and Christmas is only a couple of days away. Time really has been flying ...
For the most part, the preparations are at a good stage, most of the presents are wrapped and I even managed some last-minute sewing. More drawstring bags ... They are just so cute and fun to make!
First, I made this DVD-sized one. The main fabrics are Just Dandy and the strings Painter's Canvas from Magnolia Lane.
The lining is a fabric I bought years ago and which I love, the colours are just so nice.
Then I made three little bags for my friend's kids. For the girly ones I used Megumi Sakakibara prints as main fabrics.
The boyish one is using a cute car print from Michael Miller.
This is probably the last sewing for me this year. The time between Christmas and the New Year is quite busy for me this year, so this will probably also be the last post for 2011. Thank you so much for reading and see you next year! I wish you Happy Holidays and a good start into 2012!!!
