I had always steered clear from making gifts for Christmas to avoid that "rushing to deadline" feeling... especially when there could be so many to make for. I am also very pedantic when it comes to picking gifts, they have to be meaningful, fitting to the personality or useful. So when I really ran out of ideas from the commercially available (& reasonably priced) pool for their age group (10 - 14) this year, I decided to make them these purses & bag. Hopefully these lovingly handmades will fit in with their activities : )
|I used the Zip Pockets purse pattern by Keyka Lou.|
|well, slightly wonky but i unpicked it twice already and Terry assured me that it looks good!|
|Doh! I forgot to take pics of the inside of this purse! I used the Chic Chain purse pattern by U-Handbag.|
|yep, this one too, double doh!! oh well, it has matching lining with a pocket inside...|
|This is just a basic pattern I whipped up...|
I booked the tickets for mum to come down - another tick!
Ah... I am relax a bit now and head back to the day job tomorrow... next is to put up the tree...
