Handmade Christmas Challenge

Christmas is fast approaching. I want to be uber organised this year. Last year I was not very organised, and I did not like the feeling.

So, here are a few more handmade Christmas presents I bought this week. Two super cute navy blue appliqué t-shirts for my (Aussie) nephews. Exquisite appliqué by Sonia from Sunday's Child. She has used Echino fabric for the appliqué - I love Echino fabric. So much so, I bought some of the red Echino car fabric to make a Christmas present for some one else. I can't say who for or what I am making, I want it to be a surprise.

Pop in and visit Tracey from Knicky Knacks for more Handmade Christmas Challenges.

Hope you have had a lovely weekend.



  1. You've got me inspired Cat.. What can I sew that only involves straight lines?! You would be surprised! I am the most basic of sewers and I have this dinky little machine that I love to get out sometimes. I am going to attempt to make 3 Santa sacks, 2 for my boys and 1 for their little cousin Daan who will be here from Holland soon. Wish me luck! xx

  2. I have the red fabric in my stash too, I just cannot bear to cut it up!

  3. Thanks for the mention Cat, I'm glad you like them. All the best for the "Handmade Christmas Challenge". Can't wait to see what other lovely things you find.
