On the sixth Crafty day of Christmas...

...a crafty secret Santa

I joined in our quilting/crafting group Secret Santa again this year.

I received my parcel from Little White Dove.

She send along some gorgeous handmade goodies -

A large pin cushion (which Jazz thinks is a pillow for her dolls!) a wrist pin cushion, a camera strap ( I {heart} this), a coaster (which fits just nicely over someones pocket doll **rolls eyes** ) and some thread and bobbins. Thank You so much R, I love it all, and feel very spoilt! A camera strap and wrist pin cushion have been on my one day list for a long time, so it was all just perfect!

I had the pleasure of sending out a gift to Jots Mum.

This is what I made & purchased for her. It all looked a bit messy, so I whipped up the co-ordinating draw string bag to pop all the little bits and pieces in.
I also made a little pocket doll for her daughter and even knitted a tiny bag for her to be carried around in.

I was lucky enough to find some brand new bias makers at the op shop the other week and snapped them up to include.

My favourite thing is this fabric case for holding needles and hand sewing supplies.

I have one that I use all the time so I drafted a pattern from it. I have to say this one is much prettier than the original. Ive changed the way it does up, and added the slip in needle case as I am always leaving needles poking everywhere in mine.

Have you checked out some of the other crafty goodness that is being posted for the 12 days of crafty Christmas challenge?

I love it all Nic. Your pocket dolls are gorgeous. I can't believe you found brand new Bias makers at the op shop! Awesome! (I've been around my 8yo too much and can't think of another word lol!)
