Handmade Christmas Gifts

There is nothing nicer than giving a gift to a crafty friend that appreciates the time and effort taken.   This year for my knitting buddies I decided to make some Project bags.    My stash of cotton was crying out to be used and at the knitting and stitching show this year I took a class in making a small zipped pouch.

After a lot of time fiddling and procrastinating I got things moving and spent two days making the bags shown.  8 bags in total and I was really happy with the results – not all perfect but a big improvement on my original class version.

Each pouch is padded with fusible wadding and lined.  The process challenged me in a lot of ways.  My sewing skills have improved, I can now re-thread my overlocker and also change needles on the overlocker.  So next sewing endeavor is more of the same as the pouches were well received and I have a couple of orders.
