Happy New Gifted Gorgeousness

The first "Gifted Gorgeousness" of 2018. In case you don't know Gifted Gorgeousness is the brainchild of Jo from Serendipitous Stitching, and is a celebration of gift related crafting.
This month I'd like to share some of the things I made as Christmas gifts.
I made these zip pouches for the girls, because you can never have enough useful pouches


The TARDIS one is made using a printed panel from Spoonflower here
I also used Spoonflower fabrics to make these two cushions


For Eloise - Anatomical Heart


For Naomi - Map of Europe
If you look closely you can see that I've put a hotfix crystal in all the places she's lived and studied.

I have a friend who has a particular fondness for peacock motifs, so for her Christmas present I cut a peacock feather lino block and printed some fabric which I used to make her this bag and matching scarf


And finally, here is a jumper I knitted my husband for Christmas. He didn't get it wrapped up though because I actually finished knitting it on Christmas Day - I do like to cut things fine 


This is the Breton Stripe Sweater in Paintbox Simply Aran - available from Loveknitting.com  here
I think that's about it for this month. I'm off to see what everyone else has been making.

Popping in from the GG SAL. Your projects are lovely. The cushions are very special, though that heart is a bit too realistic for me!

Thanks for taking part in GG this month, first person to link up this year!
Love those pouches and the cushions too. I imagine the cushions would sell well in your shop?

Great gifts! I sometimes cut it quite close as well, two years ago I spent the entire car ride to my boyfriends parents knitting on a present and just wove in the final end when we pulled up in front of their house.

Lovely gifts for GG! The colors in the peacock bag are great. But my favorite is the map cushion!

Justine said...

Beautiful gifts! I love the pouches and cushions, personalised for your daughters. The bag for your friend is gorgeous, and I bet your husband was pleased with his jumper.

Brigitte said...

These gifts are so great. And I think you are right - one can never have enough pouches.
