Christmas gifts in the making....

Some people think I'm a little crazy other think I'm annoyingly organized but either way I'm having fun doing it.... I have started shopping and making things ready for Christmas gifts!
This is one I had to share... I found an easy tutorial on how to make this gorgeous Playmat HERE. So thanks to paypal and Etsy I bought a yard each of the fun Merryville & Street Stripe fabrics by Michael Miller and got to sewing.... I finished the final bits of hand sewing last night while sitting on the couch with a glass of wine and LOVE how it has turned out!!

It will be packed away now into the secret gift cupboard ready for my little man to tear open at Christmas time!

WOW Amy you are super organised.
Thanks for starting so early & blogging about it as it has got me thinking what hand made treasures I could start making????

That turned out great! I have also started shopping. I went to the local art festival today and bought my wee ones something for x-mas. =D
