Christmas Gifts 2013

Coming in just under the 2013 line (in the United Kingdom anyway) is my final post of the year and it is about the Christmas gifts I handmade this year.

I made these aprons for two lovely little girls.  They are sisters so there was the challenge of making them different, but not so different as to cause arguments!  I used a pattern from a BurdaStyle magazine, omitting a bib panel which I didn't really like and using scraps of fabric I already had.


And log cabins!

I also made a table decoration for my Mother In Law.  It uses applique and embroidery to make a simple design and I made it whilst enjoying all the bad Christmas films in the run up to the big day!

Hope you all have a Happy New Year!




  1. Love it... So cute , know the girls will love the aprons.. And I love the table runner too.. so cute.. Happy New Years.

  3. The girls love their aprons and you were correct - they haven't argued over them! :)
