handmade christmas challenge...

Christmas has to be my absolute favourite time of year.  I LOVE the carols & christmassy tunes playing everywhere you go, though hubby dreads them due to his years working in retail when the tunes started 2 months prior & seemed to continue weeks later, so I try to keep them to a minimum when he's around, I love watching all the old christmas classics on tele & hire extra from the video shop, I love reading a story every night from our special christmas book, the christmas parties, the kids handmade tree ornaments, the excitement & anticipation of the holidays on their way...
this year I think it's time we had some new christmas sacks, so I've pulled out a few bits & pieces I have in my stash to give it a whirl.  I love this striped fabric, I found it at the op shop & was going to make pj shorts for the boys, but I think it'll be nice for this little project...

  1. Great idea. I'm looking forward to getting some advice on how to sew my Christmas Stocking shortly. Have to get cracking to make the November stocking swap deadline.

  2. It is amazing to be thinking about christmas but when it comes to hand making things we do have to start early.

  3. You can't go wrong with a spot, a stripe and a check. The colours feel very festive.

    I'm not ambitious (or clever) enough to dream about an entirely handmade Christmas, but I will commit to making one or two special things a year and eventually I'll get there. x

  4. I so love christmas too, in fact yesterday in the store I peeked at the vintage Christmas it's all hidden away in cabinets. I'm so getting the bug!

  5. I can't wait for Christmas...the lights, handmade gifts, food and of course the delight on little faces. I love the ribbon and fabrics!
