The amount of different colours in a small space and the breaks between blocks of colour made him a bit of a pain to sew but I really loved the flowery design. Plus it was perfect colours for my mum as he's going to be a patch on my mum's Christmas present - I'm going to make her a crochet hook holder, but I'm a little bit unsure as to how I'm going to make it. I'm thinking of borrowing this design from Life According to Miss Vonkysmeed:
I love the case design with the little pocket and curved flaps plus I have a really nice snail shaped button to use. It should also be a learning point as I have never incorporated a zip like that! I'm planning to incorporate Mr. Deer on the back...
I've made another Christmas present, for my other granny. I decided to make the same pin cushion and thread catcher:
I fell in love with the bright animal print in the shop - it makes me smile!! I got a lot quicker and more accurate this time round, definitely an improvement. Plus how cute is that candy dish - my boss gave it to me as a Christmas present last year.
Talking of candy and sweet stuff, tomorrow we are having a bake sale at work as a fundraiser for one of my colleagues who is doing the Olympic distance in the London Triathlon (she is mad!) for UK Youth. I have made some banana and walnut muffins:
OK so many is a minor understatement - I think I've made enough right???
