Today was Livvie's last day of Preschool. For some reason, I like to leave things to the last minute, so I was up until 11pm last night, finishing off the little gifts for her friends.
First up, I made up some little paper stockings for the Rudolph Necklaces;
The bottom half is baking paper, with some christmas card on top. I can't remember where I saw this idea, but I think it's a cute way to package up a little christmas gift. These were the gifts for her little girl friends.
As for the boys...
So all the little gifts were finished just on time. And I actually quite liked the sewing frenzy... sometimes it's good to have a deadline because then I actually get things done (instead of the usual procrastination!)
Then, for the teachers, in addition to the fabric covered journals, I made up some quick little zippered pouches;
The children seem to get so many candy canes and chocolates at this time of the year, I wanted to make something for the boys instead. So I stitched up some little fabric Christmas ornaments. I had some fabric with festive cats left over from a couple of years ago. I added a felt circle and some ribbon which we wrote their names on;
Which I lined with some cute fabric with apples all over it...
