Princess Skirt dress-up ensemble to go with Princess Crown
Even though it's quite a bit of work, making handmade christmas pressies is actually lots of fun. It's completely different than sewing for orders, or for markets, or for special requests.
Superhero Crown and matching Superhero Cape
My favourite part is always choosing the fabric from the stash. The fabric stash at my house is approximately twice the size of my walk-in-wardrobe.... I will never need to buy fabric again for the rest of my life (notice that I used the word need, which is completely different than want or will)...... the only thing that I've had to buy for the christmas presents was a lot more velcro.
More unidentified animal ears and matching tail
I sometimes spend just as much time choosing the fabric combinations, as I do actually making the end product.
The list has nearly been cleared. I just need to make another Superhero Crown and Cape for Moo Moo, and maybe some appliqued tees for all the boys, and then a trip to Bunnings for a gift voucher and I'm all done!
I'm promising myself to start earlier next year (even though I'm sure I said that last year)....oh well.
