Handmade Christmas Challenge
The one thing I love most about Christmas is styling a table for a huge Christmas feast. This year I'm going to aim for a fuss-free Chrissy with simple groupings of natural objects, crisp linen and a dash of crimson red. For more styling ideas, head over here.
A couple of weeks ago, I headed over to Katie's place from 5 Star Baby to support the wonderful sale she was hosting. I walked out of there with my hands full. Perhaps the most astonishing piece of sewing mastery I spied was this handbag.
It's gorgeous don't you think? I have bought it for my cousin for Christmas. She's a little bohemian so I know she'll just love the colours and design. So here's the astonishing part...Katie's 8 year old niece made it. That's right, a child. A child who knows their way around a sewing machine! I can't even darn a hole in a sock. Had she made more, I would have bought the whole lot. There is hope for me yet that perhaps I too will sew something worthy of this calibre one day.
What wonderful creations are you making for Christmas? Have you spied someone else's creation that would be perfect for a loved one?
