Christmas progress

The inspiration for my February project comes from Marina at Maisie and the Boys who was my secret Santa in a 2010 Christmas exchange. One of the gifts she made and gave to me was a gorgeous little scissor keeper or sewing case, and I liked it so much I decided to make some to give too. I put together a couple of these in one night, and tucked some sewing goodies in. They look cute and and are really handy - just what I need in my gift stash. Thanks Marina.

FYI - This pattern is in Patchwork & Stitching magazine Vol 7 No 5

  13. This is so lovely, what a lovely present! I'd love to make these for my non-crafty friends - everyone has to sew on a button now and again! Did you use a pattern or did you just make it up?

South Island has drawn us holiday to you for the last four years and we hope to come back again next year. I do hope all is ok over there, your island is full of the most welcoming friendly people we have ever come across :)
