Christmas Presents

I know I know it is only August but in my defence I want to get all Christmas presents handmade this year and then have to get them sent to the UK to deliver in time for Christmas I have to get started now.

So my first two are made.

I made these notebook and pencil holders for my niece and nephew. I found the tutorial on One Red Robin. I had to tweek it a bit as I found the ribbon too girly for a boy so I used a button and elastic instead. I also sewed the pockets for the pencils before I put the thing together as I didn't like the lines visible on the front.

I have also knitted a scarf fro my Dad but I can't seem to get a good picture of it.

Next on the list is a knitting needle roll which I am going to make first in a cheap fabric for me and then a proper one for my mum.

I am also writing a tutorial - just to see if I can do it - so watch this space as It will be here sometime soon.

Will return to let you know more soon.

Take care

Jots Mum

I love the notebook/pencil holders. You are inspiring me for my girls for Christmas. They look great.

I've made my first one and the receiver loved it. Thanks for the idea about the button as well. I might try that for a boy present too.
