Thought I'd share

some of the pressies I made for family for Xmas

 Slippers  for my MIL to keep her feet toasty warm

Both the slippers & flower were crocheted

I bought an inexpensive hat & used my handmade felt

and cut the flowers out using my Big Shot & a Sizzix build a flower die & sewed them on using buttons for the centers.

I made a Dressing Table Tidy for my niece
I painted the insides a plain antique white & the outside & top rims were given a coat of colour then painted white & crackle glazed

The recipient :-)

Other members of the family got Snoods - hand knitted & with handmade buttons that I crafted from Fimo

So there you go - a few of the handcrafted pressies ...

My MIL got in on the act too making the boys of the family (including the dog!) knitted hats :-)

Smashing gifts,Rachel. I like the dressing table tidy. Did you make the box as well? Gorgeous slippers too. What did the fellas think of their hats?

Thanks Paula :-)

The dressing table tidy started off life as a wooden cutlery holder Kath :-) The fellas loved their hats, but puppy dog wasn't so keen LOL

Gosh, what a lot of lovely gifts you made. Love the fimo buttons and I'd love some of those cosy slippers x

It's lovely to give (and receive) handmade gifts, isn't it. Those piny purple booties are fab. Wish I could knit but I have two left hands LOL
