Now that Christmas is over, it’s safe to slowly start posting some of the items I sewed for friends and family, some as presents while a couple are dresses two friends wanted to wear for Christmas and/or New Year.
For presents, I sewed a lot of cosmetic bags in different fabrics and sizes. Adi and I did well this year as our Christmas presents were all ready at the beginning of December. The only drawback is that I dilly-dallied in taking photos of my makes thinking I had so much time for it then totally forgot about it. Good thing I was able to snatch photos of the ones for my sister-in-law, just a few minutes before driving to the in-laws’ place for Christmas.
The pattern is again from So Sew Easy. To make a smaller bag, I just took an inch off from the original dimension. These two fit perfectly well together.
I can’t stress it enough that I love handmade items. The time and energy given to create them is what makes each item so special. In a world where everything moves at a breakneck speed, time is the best gift you could ever give to someone, right? Right!!! * That’s about a thousand of my clones agreeing in unison.*
How was your holiday sewing been like? Mine isn’t over as I thought. There’s still this blue dress glaring at me. I promised to finish it today so I could wear it to a party tomorrow but after a sleepless night (maybe I ate too much nuts in my cookies that I couldn’t sleep?), even glaring back at it is already draining me out. We’ll see.
