My last Christmas makes!

Did I manage to finish all my Christmas making in time??

I left you last saying that I had one bag to make and several pouches!

Well as one friend of mine sometimes reads my blog I can show you all but one make...

Here are the two tote bags ...the stripey one is the one I have just finished and is for an older teen so I hope it is appropriate...

Here are some pouches - one missing until a later date!

The cat pouches are my own design  ....

The blue one was the prototype - and the pink is the improved version!  Both feature a zipper put in on a curve - slighty trickier to do and requiring a little snipping in the seam to allow the curve!   The back is striped in the same fabric as those noses - the blue one has the word 'Miaow' and the pink has 'Purfect' sewn on to them.  Both are lined and contain a little treat!

And here is a pouch for a more grown up teen who is more into gothy stuff I believe!

I found an image on google as my inspiration and put some of Alison's scraps to good purpose here!  The cord I had in my stash already!  This zip was a lot easier to put in!  Haha I wrote the words 'zip' and 'easier' in the same sentence - who'd have thought that a couple of months ago - not me for one!

I am pleased with all and hope they are liked.

My lovely cat Saffy decided to give me an early present.  She brought a toy into the house - it was a little brown, four-legged and long-tailed toy which looked a bit like this....

It is still with us as we have not managed to catch it yet and return it to the outside world where it belongs...we may be sharing our Christmas with our little guest!  Wonder if he gets a stocking too!?

Oh and A Very Merry Christmas to One and All!   Including our surprise guest!

Thanks for sharing, supporting, advising, and just being with me on this little bloggy journey of ours just would not be the same without all of you!
