You may have noticed that I have been a little 'handy' lately with my sewing efforts...well not only is it a great way to creatively express yourself, there's a certain something that comes with giving a present that you have part or whole made yourself. Some of my friends and clients have been tuning into a show called 'Kirstie's Homemade Christmas' where many, if not all projects are hand made or bespoke by a local craft artist.
Well I certainly don't mean that these little gifts I came up with for all of Isabelle's friends from our Mother's Group are completely bespoke but there are hand embellished and made with love.... For each of the little one an special applique Christmas inspired top they can wear leading up to or on Christmas day. For the boys - a 5 point red & white gingham applique star a little tacking embroidery and for the little ladies - a gift box with red satin ribbon and red felt bows tacked with white contrast stitching. They all seemed to be a hit, thank goodness!
