#stitchingsanta update

It’s gone! Sent! Complete!  I really love putting parcels like these together as I find it a good challenge to make the most of the budget and to make some stash busting gifts.

The week before last, I set about with the handmade extras to my gifts.  I didn’t choose anything too big or fancy as I wanted my gifts to be useful to the recipient.

I’m actually thinking of doing more detailed posts about these gifts at the beginning of next year.  Even though I already used tutorials that were available online, I changed things slightly to suit my sewing style and patience!

First up, I’ve made a set of 4 quilted mug rugs/ coasters.  I’ve included a couple of tea bags with this gift as a little extra too.  I don’t know about anyone else, but I seem to use & have coasters all around the apartment so I think that these are quite a useful gift.
