Handmade Christmas

This year I bought lots of Handmade presents for our friends and family. As well as getting beautiful unique gifts and supporting so many artists, I didn't have to go to the shops and did all this shopping in the comfy of my lounge :-) Bonus I say!

For hubby from us via YumYumBubblegum @ etsy

For the kids from Bianca's shop @ Madeit
Already been put to good use (note the missing yellow crayon and book in Bellas pack, little Miss took off with it while I was taking the photo)
Gorgeous gifts from a dear friend overseas as part of a swap we did. The little hanger is above my sewing machine and check out that little tree! Apparently she designed it herself and I think a pattern is in order please! You can get your own gorgeous wristlet from her shop, mine fits perfect and love the black. Thank you lovely lady, all my family was jealous while I was opening these handmade goodies on Christmas morning.
I sent her these to open on Christmas day. Scarf pattern is "Fourteen" @ Ravelry, Apple pincushion made from Craftapalooza's pattern, table runner from Sew Mama Sew's tutorial and the flower brooch I made up as I went along using some wool felt.

Bella got this gorgeous necklace from Deb's shop @ etsy (image from Deb's shop) from Santa and

also a lovely ring from Belinda/Tutti Frutti's shop (image from Tutti Frutti).

For Bella's little friend also from Deb's shop @ etsy (image from Deb's shop)

For the Grandmothers and me from MamaBethBling @ etsy

Table gifts I made for guests on Christmas Day

There was also a couple of heat packs for Dean's parents and a pair of matching PJ shorts for Liam and Dean.

And some last minute handmade shopping before Christmas...

ABC Panel from Aunty Cookie's shop @ etsy for a pillow for Bella

You are too good to me girl! I didn't use a pattern for the little tree, so I just may have to do it again and do it right so I can share with people! So glad you loved the package, I know I love my goodies!

You did good, and so nice to have things that weren't mass produced.

There are some really beautiful goodies here - my Bella received one of those sweet wraps from Bianca's store too.
