What's in the box?

Firstly let me wish you all a very happy, safe and creative 2010.

I usually do not make New Year's resolutions simply because I break each and every one of them by the end of the first week but I did read a good suggestion on the craft forum about getting ahead with some "gifties" and thought that this is a goer. I think I can uphold this resolution for more than a week - hopefully. Hence the box.

Ready to peak inside

Let me give you a closer look

I find that these items make great "extra" gifts to add in, they are quick to make up and use some of those ever increasing scraps lying around my sewing room.

I know that the box is looking rather empty but if I can keep up this new resolution I hope to have it full by Christmas 2010 provided I do not raid it too much during the year.

I will let you know when the next lot of "gifties" is ready for public display.

In the meantime happy sewing.

Good move Karen.I've also started doing this idea for next Christmas.Are the tea towels handles easy to make up and where would I find a pattern for them as I also think they'd be a great filler for Christmas gifts :) Barb.

I love the tea towels Karen. When on holiday over in Australia in November I found some of these in a little craft shop and stocked up. They are very handy. Will have to make some myself
