So, last year I forced my close friends to make handmade presents for Christmas. We did it as a Secret Santa - so we only had to make one present. This was before I could sew. Everyone did really well...except me - and it was my idea! There were cookies made, badges created, pillows cases sewn...and random things put into a bag from me!
But THIS year, I actually have a slight skill that I can put to good use. It will mark a whole year of sewing for me!
This requires planning - if the gifts are going to be any good. Which means starting Christmas presents now - yes NOW, in AUGUST!
I have a few ideas in mind for some of my close friends and their children. Can't quite get my head around the fact that I am actually planning Christmas this early (I am not the most organised person!).
Although, to be fair, I haven't actually started making anything!!
