Last year I decided that I would hand make some of the Christmas gifts that we gave to our friends and family. I’ve saved posting about them until now because I didn’t want to spoil any surprises pre-December 25th!
For 5 of my friends I made reusable tote bags. I sewed them in contrasting fabrics and made them fully lined. I was pretty proud of myself for this! I filled them with a couple of little personalised gifts for each lady and added a little tag asking them to reuse the bag in future (doing my little bit to help the environment!) Here they are:
For another friend I knitted a toasty winter headband to keep her warm on her commute to work each day. I was almost tempted to keep this, I love the colour of the wool so much!
I hope that they all liked their presents. I certainly enjoyed making them, and intend to keep on making gifts for people this year. I’ve already got some Mother’s Day ideas in mind for mine and Jonny’s mums!
