Christmas Prep

I’ve not posted for a while but I have been busy, I’ve added some new bags to my stock and I’ve been busy with a few other Christmas crafts. I’ve had my first attempt at my own hand made Christmas cards. I also offered to make Santa’s magic keys for the school Christmas fair and volunteered to make a new Santa hat and coat for a Polar bear prize for school, it seemed an easy task but is proving anything but!The first bag was a clutch bag made from an unloved and never worn skirt I picked up at a boot sale, I just loved the pattern.

Two versions of Santa’s Magic Keys, I have made these for the School Christmas fair but I’ve had to do them when my 5 year old wasn’t around, I’m not spoiling it for him yet.  I found all the keys in my fathers garage 22 in all, not sure how someone collects that many old keys but I’m glad he did.
