Gifts Glore!

As a child I have always made Christmas presents, over the recent years though I have really started to take this task seriously. So as I have shown you already I have been making padded hangers, his and her style, I have completed four more, the stash has nearly finished.
I have also finished the scarf I have been knitting for my Dad. It's moss stitch which I think I'm in love with.

I have also finished drying the felted ball I have made for Arthur's stocking. This is so cute and they are so so easy to make. They also look good with a few beads and a thread and Bobs your Uncle you have hanging Christmas balls. A few of us made these at the mother and baby group I run.

And finally, I know you will all love this! Taken from Petra Berger's Feltcraft, making doll, gifts and toys, book I have made another stocking filler. Gnome with a bed.

This gnome fits in perfectly with the craft book challenge I have only stumbled across this recently, which is sad because it is now coming to an end, but I feel pleased to have sneaked in a couple of entrys.

But finally all of these gifts become apart of my Crafty Christmas Stash

So Christmas is coming along nicely thank you, how about you?


  1. Love the scraft.... Great gift making... I'm doing the same ...

  2. :) Cute! I really like the scarf. I'll have to look up the moss stitch...

  3. Aw such a cute gnome!

    I'd love to make pressies for everyone, but I haven't managed this year. Maybe next year!

  4. Lovely gifts - lucky family! Well done Charlotte, great job.... I've made a scarf and a snood, but that's all x

  5. have been busy..I am envious of you..Such cute ideas. I love the clothes hangers, and I must confess--- I am fixing to attempt some..but I think I will be stingy and do them for ME.ha.

    I am working on Poodle skirts for my grandaughters, Emily & Callie. They have been asking me for one for a year now.. So.. I think Santa will add it to their stockings.
    Happy sewing/crafting.

  6. I love that Moss Stitch as well! So crafty!!!!

  7. Aww, the gnome in his bed is just the sweetest!
