I can't believe I never posted the gorgeous crafty gifts I received at Christmas! I was lucky enough to get some beautiful handmade gifts. This lovely crocheted bag was made by my friend, Star. I love the color! It's made perfectly! I have crocheted in the past but prefer to knit. This bag will be so useful when I go shopping, especially quilt shows!!
Star also made me this cute pin cushion, I thought it was an ornament! I've been using it while paper piecing. Very helpful! Thank you, Star, for 2 wonderful gifts!!
Sarah sent me a kit to make 2 different bags. Sarah sent me this gift all the way from England! I'll get to it eventually!
Sarah also sent me a tin full of buttons. We all know you can't have enough buttons! Thank you, Sarah!
I made a few Nickita bags for a few of my friends. I felt as though I was working on an assembly line! I worked on 5 bags at the same time. I think it took less time doing it this way. These bags are the only handmade gifts I got to make this year. I always seem to run out of time!
