handmade

Nine years ago I started a Christmas tradition, I wanted to make or buy a Christmas decoration for my grandchildren, I have to do it for three of them now. That way when they have their own place they will have some decorations to start them off.

These little hanging bags are a pattern by Melly and Me and I have some little treasures to put in them. They can be hung on a door handle or wherever.
Here's a top secret project for another handmade gift, I have made some other stuff but can't show themThis is Mia, a sock monkey made by Kellie from Don't Look Now
I was lucky enough to win her by being the 1000th person to leave a comment on her blog. I'm going to have to make a go at making one of these.

The girls are going LOVE the bag - E will walk around with it on her shoulder as will S. J will just love the sparkly wings - it is very her.

Kellie's sock monkeys are neat, you are so lucky! Mia looks like she could be trouble, she has that look in her eye...
