Christmas craft

It's time for more Christmas craft and today it's my latest make, for a friend - 'Merry Christmas' bunting. Each flag had an appliqued letter on it and then there are three appliqued pictures. My friend was really pleased with the finished item, and I'm now onto making a cushion for her (a little less complicated perhaps!)

A little something for Christmas

I've just taken a few photo's of these little bags I've made to sell on my stall (and I'll list them on Folksy too.) The light was really bad today, it was so wintery and rained most of the day. These were my best pictures.

Each little house contains a sugar mouse, the idea is to keep the bag year after year and put in a new treat to be hung from your tree. Me, being my usual cynical self thought maybe the kids of today would rather have a Big Mac and fries hanging from the tree. However I sold a couple at my last fair, so maybe there are still some sweet kids left!

A collection of owls

I have a lovely friend, Sharon, who has recently opened a sweet shop and I have been helping her by making 'one-off' unusual things to add to her shop. I made these owls for her halloween window and I'm now onto stockings (to fill with her sweets) and tiny bags to hang onto a Christmas tree. (more picture soon) Hopefully (!) a few may sell and I then I will have some pennies to spend on Folksy - wishful thinking!
