Handmade Monday 47

So here we are, one week till Christmas! Where has the time gone?! I have found myself slowly starting to panic as the days tick by and my list gets longer not shorter!

I thought for handmade Monday this week I would share with you some of the handmade things I have made and bought for presents.

I bought this lovely mosaic bird bath for my mum and dad. I bought it from Jo Sara during the CRAFTfest weekend. I had found her folksy page a couple of months ago and thought the bird bath would be a perfect present, so I was delighted I could support her by buying from the CRAFTfest stall!

Here are some things I have bought and made myself

On the left is a ear warmer (bought for my brother-in-laws girlfriend, but I couldn’t resist buying one for myself too!) from Victoria Rose Crafts. In the centre of the picture is a handmade Stanley lavender dog, and on the right is some hand knitted sushi made by knits and nacksfor my mum (she has a thing for sushi!) I also bought 2 of Penny’s beautiful felted Robbins, one of which is a present for mum – I know she’ll love him!

So today was my finishing off jobs day and I made 2 more presents

An iPad cover for my mum, made from lovely fabric kindly donated by Maeri from The Make and do studio and also 2 lavender heat packs which I made following this tutorial.

The last job of the day was to do some baking. Friends are coming over for a little Christmas party tonight so hubby made some lovely mince pies and I decided to make these rather sparkly cookies!

Tomorrow is the Warrington Clandestine cake club social, where all club rules have been thrown out of the window, so in the spirit of Christmas I decided to make mince pie cupcakes! Here is them half finished

I just need to add a brandy buttercream and they are done!

So a lovely end to a very busy making week! Please pop by Wendy’s blog to see what everyone else has been up to for handmade Monday this week. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas :)

  1. I was thinking what lovely things all the way through reading this . . . then you blew it all by saying “mince pie cupcakes” – now I can’t remember anything else! ;-)

  2. I love the gifts, especially the bird bath. I’m feeling hungry now after seeing those mince pie cupcakes and cookies, i’m going to have to bake something! Merry Christmas. x
