Finishing touches

It's feeling more like Christmas now that I have most of the presents and have written out my cards. I've still got to sew up a couple of pairs of knitted gloves and make one piece of bunting but still found some time to make personal gift tags using up some felt, buttons + ribbon. They are really simple but make the gift bags look special. Last year I made felted love hearts and knitted ones but I wanted to do something new this year.

My sister went to John Lewis this week and commented how expensive their little hand made items are so came home and made her own. Her button heart is lovely and similar ones cost around £10! I've found its getting more difficult to go into the high street to buy craft products but charity shops do a good line in buttons! Enjoy your Sunday whatever you get up to. Amanda x

Your gift tag is gorgeous and it will certainly add something to your gifts. My cards are written and posted, at last, but I've still got a few gifts to buy.

Thanks Jo I'm quite pleased how they turned out. I posted the last of my cards today and I'm off shopping on Tuesday night with my mum. Well we plan to have dinner there too!
