Other Christmas Sewing

This year's Christmas sewing was definitely a reduced service compared to previous years and consisted of bags and pouches and a single cushion only. But I'm pretty pleased I had the energy to complete them and they turned out pretty well too.

A few months back, I saw a Devon Pouch posted on Instagram. It was made by Saira, who runs the lovely Olive and Flo Handcraft fabric shop using the pattern by @sotakhandmade. It's a fairly straightforward pouch but with a front pocket and the option to add a coordinating fabric - so a bit more special than a basic pouch. I made four: One for a secret santa swap at our local quilt group, filled with an EPP pincushion kit;
 One filled with  a gift card;

 And two for work colleagues, filled with sweets.

I then made three Wee Braw Bags:

These two were made as Christmas presents for Mia's teachers and filled with a mug and some posh hot chocolate. Mia picked the mugs and fabrics herself.

And finally the smaller sized pouch to gift a necklace for my mother-in-law.

Ad then, slightly last minute, I whipped up a cushion in some Tula Pink De La Luna fabric. No quilting or wadding, just a front and a back, finished with a zip.

Maybe the quantity wasn't there, but the quality sure was. All of your gifty sewing looks like it would have been so much fun for the recipients. I especially like that cushion!
