Handmade Gifts

We are only in the first week of February and already I have my February Make Of The Month.  Oh I love to be organised, I feel like I am back, and I am so loving all the extra time I have of an evening. 

I was hoping to make my Mum a Kindle cover for Christmas but my sewing machine had been playing up so I never managed to get it finished.  I took advantage of my evenings after work last week and Ta da.





I am so pleased with it, and mum seemed pretty chuffed as well :)  It is such a great feeling being able to give handmade gifts, knowing that all the hard work and love that has gone into making it is appreciated. 

I made a new year's resolution to craft more this year and I hope to be able to make a lot more handmade gifts for loved ones throughout the year.

Hope you are all staying safe and warm.

Love Gem x x x x

  6. Love this! Looks so professional! I too love it when people appreciate homemade things, I have a few people who dont and it makes for quite an uncomfortable situation! xxx

  8. Brilliant idea! I love making this too! I'm just trying to work out how to make my boyfriend a felt valentines day card with buttons so it will stand up and so it will be functional for some other purpose other than as a card! Hmmmm, maybe I can adapt your idea and make a book cover- he always mangles books!
