Stitching Santa2016

I hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas – and will have a Happy New Year!

I’m here to show off my #stitchingsanta gifts.

I’m not sure who sent these as there was no name, so if you’re reading, do own up so I can thank you properly – I’m really happy with your choices so there’s nothing to be ashamed of! 😉

I managed to save my gifts until Christmas Day, and it was really nice to have something to open! This is my haul…

There’s some beautiful lace applique, destined to be a collar, perhaps on an upcycled plain dress!

Couture Sewing Techniques – ooh wow, lots of bedtime reading here! I will be a pro in no time 😉

A beautiful ClothKits skirt kit – the skirt pieces are printed directly on to the fabric so there’s no need for tracing a pattern, cutting a pattern, and all that faff! I love it! I cut the pieces out last night, now they’re all ready to sew up! Conveniently The Monthly Stitch’s January challenge is to sew up some fabric that you’ve recently received/bought before it enters the bottomless pit that is your stash. Well, I’m determined to get this made up ASAP! 😀

It was also tied up in the cute tape measure ribbon in the first photo, which of course I am stashing!

And finally a good length of this cotton fabric (rubbish rushed photo, sorry) – I’m not sure exactly what it is but it’s lightweight, maybe I will make some summer trousers with it… 🙂

Well my Stitching Santa gifter certainly did her homework and got me down to a tee! Refashioning, the colour blue, quick & simple dressmaking project, the need to learn some high-end sewing techniques… yay, thank you so much!! ❤

Finally, my giftee has blogged about the parcel she received from me so if you’re interested, do follow this link! 🙂

Happy New Year!

    • Ohhh Kate!! Thank you so much!! I should read your blog more often!! I was going through the whole stitching santa list to check blogs for clues but you are right at the bottom and I ran out of time! That’ll teach me. Thank you so much for the lovely thoughtful gifts. I’ve made the skirt, to be blogged when time allows! 🙂
