I AM DETERMINED...

....that next year I WILL cut down on the number of swaps I join in with ... YES I WILL !! lol x

SO... with this in mind I have made a start ... and am only in TWO Christmas swaps xx... well its a start xx

One of the swaps has a bag that you make from a (simple pattern) then fill with goodies ... bag made ..




NOW to decide on what to make for inside xx ( looking at these the rickrack looks a sort of pinky colour ... it looks much better "in the flesh"" and matches the other colours !! lol x)

The second one I decided to make a Diane bag as part of the swap...



DONE xx To-day I am planning on making "stuff" to put in each .. then go and buy some Christmassy fun stuff to include as well xx

It is a dull missely (fine rain that soaks you through!!) day .. so ideal for staying in and having fun sewing xx

Hope you have something fun to do to-day xx

Diane xx

Love the bags, I need to start making bags for World of Cross Stitching we give bags to children and seniors in a care facility. Then we fill them up with goodies.

Great bags, you could make one with the fabric/ribbon & bead from your group?
