Gift Making

Hello friends,

During February and March I have several friends and family members with birthdays so I decided to get busy and make up some gifts to put away in my pressie cupboard :)

I found this great tutorial a few months ago so here's my version of a Tissue Pocket:

With the cooler and wet "summer" days recently, I've felt like knitting so out came my knitting needles, a few balls of DK wool and a pattern I've made up lots of times now:

(My friend Wendy made these little gift cards for me last year to attach to knitted gifts, aren't they neat)

I've also made a few mug cozies to give as future gifts.

This particular pattern is from Mollie Makes, Issue 7. I'm so pleased that I've found a NZ source, Sew Pretty, to buy this from as its a great source of ideas and so many pretty pictures :) I have also bought a few digital back issues through Zinio, but I'm hoping I'll be able to source paper copies of these eventually.  

Thanks for dropping by, see you soon xx
