Handmade Christmas Gifts!

I can finally share with you the handmade gifts I made for Christmas this year!  I love making something for my kids and they still love receiving something hand made from me each year too.  So for my daughter I made her two things – the first is this Frozen handbag.


This is made from a Natalie Ross pattern called ‘Lucys Ladybird Adventure’.  I left our the applique and used this beautiful sparkly Frozen fabric I found at Riviera Patchwork.  I love the sparkly button I found for the front too – I think it just finishes it off nicely.  My daughter loves it.

The other gift I made her was this Blue Fairy Doll.  The pattern is by Paloma Rocha from Noia Land Patterns.


This was a cute little hand sewn project made entirely out of felt.  I used a lovely glitter felt for the wings which I found from Rose Petal Collections.   This was a great pattern – easy to follow and lots of diagrams too.  You should definitely check out her Etsy store - Noia Land Patterns - she has some really cute designs.

I wanted to make something from Star Wars for my son for Christmas this year and so I ended up making him this Chewbacca softie.  I just made up the design after being inspired by a few things I found on Pinterest.  I think he looks like Chewbacca and most importantly my son thought so too!


For the kids teachers this year I made them these Scrappy Apples.


The pattern is by Retro Mama and I loved this design!  I love the shape and the clever way you made it too.  A great pattern with excellent instructions and lots of step by step photos.

The last gift I made was for a KK swap.  This Tiny Gingerbread House ornament pattern is by Gingermelon.


Another cute very tiny hand sewn project made from felt (it fits in the palm of your hand!).  I also used the glitter felt on the roof of this too.  A very cute little design – you definitely have to check out her Etsy shop too – an overload of cuteness there!

Happy Sewing!





Hi! I love the Chewbacca you made! Do you have a pattern for it? I looked at your Etsy shop but did not see it. Thanks!


Hi Joanna! Sorry but I don’t have a pattern for the Chewbacca. I just made up the design quickly from a few ideas I had found on Pinterest. He is just one basic body shape (which I appliqued the face onto) and then the legs and arms which are then sewn into the seams and I made him using a faux fur material.
