I can finally post some pictures of a couple of the gifts that I made for Christmas - now that they have been gifted and opened!
The orange has been posted before but as it has now made it's way to a friend's baby as part of her Christmas I will repost it here - a knitted orange with 3 dried peas in a little plastic tub inside to make it rattle! Apparently it was well received by the 7 month old!
OK I will also have to admit that I didn't do a lot of the making on the bags (thanks Andrea!) but I did help with the cutting, tying ends etc. The fabric is the important part - first of all the fish are for my friend Mariana as she works with fish and her boss (like one of the fish on the fabric) is called Robert and secondly, the pink one for my friend Ally as her husband owns a camper van and they like to go off camping!
The pincushion was also for Ally, inspired by the divets of grass that you see lying about the golf course and my love of "jelly" coloured Kid Silk Haze from Rowan - perhaps my favourite yarn ever!
