Hand-made Christmas Gifts

Hi Everyone

I'm back online!!!  What a relief!
As promised here are pics of some of  the handmade goodies I made this year as Christmas gifts for family and friends.....
Little pouches to put gift vouchers in made from Nikkim 100% cotton yarn from Woolhogs.
These little baggies can be used for tissues, tampons, lipsticks etc by the receiver afterwards.

 The purple bag below is made from a textured yarn from Woolhogs called Bambi (a blend of 30% bamboo and 70% cotton)


These are packs of 4 cards and 4 envelopes.  They are decorated with prints of my original artworks:


These are facecloths - yes facecloths (not doilies) and they work like a charm!  I made myself one to try it out.   They are made with Nikkim 100% cotton yarn from - you geussed it- WOOLHOGS.
 I bought Nivea soap which comes in a box and wrapped it with patterned scrapbooking paper and stamped the word "SOAP" on it with my alphabet stamps.

These are a great recycling project:  pencil tins from empty food cans .  Crochet was done with Serina 100% bamboo yarn from Woolhogs.

And these are my Christmas cards and gift tags made using prints of my original artwork:


And in my next post I want to show you pics of the cover of my recycled journal that I told you about in a previous post not so long ago.  I am sooooo thrilled with how this Journal cover turned out.... WATCH THIS SPACE......
