Gifted Gorgeousness for September

The day for Gifted Gorgeousness has rolled around again, Gifted Gorgeousness being the blog hop organised by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching where we show our gift related crafting.
Three things to show this month. First is the Holiday Exchange from Needlecraft Haven. This was an exchange in two parts. We selected and kitted up a small free chart to send to our partners earlier in the year, and for this part we reveal what we stitched from the gift we received.
I received a sweet little snowflake design from Dusty, and here is the ornament I stitched it up into.


Thank you Dusty, it was a fun stitch.
Second up is this bag I made for Naomi using a gorgeous remnant of sloth print fabric I got from the sale at Sugar Bowl Crafts


Thirdly a t-shirt upcycle, also for Naomi. I took this t-shirt


and added a faux leather corsetting detail at the neckline.


She made me cut her head off the picture because "I haven't done my eyebrows Mum"
I also made a project bag for Clare for her birthday but I totally forgot to get a picture before I sent it out!

Another great gifted gorgeousness post, Christine... That little snowflake with the Santa hat turned out great with the gingham ruffle and bow. And the bag is amazing--what fun fabric and I've always loved red, black, and white in combination :)

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I love the idea of doing a kit exchange and then stitching it up as an alternative to sending the finished item.
Nice work on the t-shirt and the lovely bag too.

Sloth fabric!?! I just bought the dude some sloth socks. I think he may need a pair of sloth pajama pants...
