Time to fill in the "blanks" which I had made before Christmas but couldn't show on here as the recipients read my blog.
First of all, Joanna asked me if I could make a round patchwork mat to fit a basket she was giving Debbie for her Christmas. We discussed measurements and fabric choices and this is what I came up with.
Thankfully, both girls loved it so we were all happy!
Next I made a cover for Joanna's diary. This is something I do every year and sometimes struggle to get the size right. This year I bought the same kind of diary as I had used a couple of years ago when the cover fit well. I used those measurements again and, yes, it fitted beautifully. I hope I remember to do that next year!
This is the front:
And this is the back:
A few days before Christmas, Debbie said to me " Mum, you know what I don't have? Christmas oven gloves!". Needless to say, that was remedied very easily!
After Christmas, Debbie asked me if I'd make a few pencil cases and pouches for Emily's new felt pens and other wee things. I first of all made a prototype of a pencils pencil case. I wasn't entirely happy with it - I know! I am way too critical of my own work! It wasn't a problem, though, as Joanna kindly offered to take it off my hands! 🤣
I re-made it changing a few things here and there. I am much happier with this version.
Then I made another 3 which I hope will store all sorts of wee things for the wee girlies!
This next one is the last of the fabric I got from Jo's blog giveaway. Thanks again, Jo.
The best thing about all of these pencil cases is that they're all made from scraps. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have reduced said scraps! Honestly, when I'm not paying attention, I'm positive that fabric scraps breed! 🤣
Take care out there. Stay safe. Wear a mask.
