christmas number two

We just got back from four crazy, wonderful days in Melbourne for our christmas no. two with my family... pheeeeew!! We had such a great time but it wasn't long enough! I really wanted to get out and about in Melbourne but we only had time to hang out with the family... hopefully next year we will stay longer! Anyway, I can now reveal what I have been up to in the last week...

I tea dyed, screen printed and made a cute little tote bag in bright orange and sky blue. I used the stencils I had made for my little bird in hand which looks quite effective I think! I love how it turned out and now wish I had made two at the same time :)

I made another "bird in hand". I really love the grey and raspberry colours together.

I tea dyed, screen printed and made another 'home sweet home" cushion. I forgot to take a picture of it finished... drat!

Yep... I have been very, very busy! Everyone loved their handmade gifts... phew!! It felt so good to give something that I made... best feeling ever :)

I will share another cute little project I also did last week with you tomorrow!

Hope your are having a great week leading up to xmas and it's not to crazy!  xxx


  1. Snap! on the tote bag post :-) It's lovely - I'll bet you wished you'd made lots. I agree about the great feeling of giving handmade, when it's appreciated, that is ;-)

  2. Oh yes I agree..that tote is marvellous!

  3. the tote is fantastic! I love how you've printed on the slant there...looks fab!

  4. I find machine sewing the most challenging crafty thing to do with a little one at home, so good on you! Everything looks beautiful--lucky recipients!!

  5. Love that tote! Well done, and yes, isn't it great to give a gift you made with your own two hands?
