Bits and Bobs

I have already blogged about the majority of the homemade Christmas presents that I handed over this year, but there are a couple that couldn't show you before Christmas and a few that I *ahem* forgot to photograph (oops!).

Here are the presents that I remembered to photograph:

An appliqué rocket t-shirt for a special little boy. 
I had such fun making this.
Can you tell?
The front
The back
Zipper pouches for the preschool teachers which were filled with coordinated covered button goodies. These were thrown together at the last minute, but I was really please with how they turned out!

I am really pleased that I managed to make virtually all of our Christmas presents for friends and family this year. I definitely intend to keep on striving to give handmade gifts, especially as they have all been so well received.

Did you give handmade gifts and were they well received?


  1. Lovely! I made a few things this year for Riley and my mum. I'm already planning a 'handmade' Christmas for this year. Since we'll be in Wellington for it postage won't be an issue.

  2. that t-shirt is gorgeous! I'm new to your blog but love what I've seen.

  3. The appliquéd rocket is awesome!!! I made a few handmade gifts and all were well received. I'm going to start earlier this year.

  4. I love, love, love the rocket t-shirt. I had plans to do some handmade gifts but ran out of time. Got a whole year to get onto it, so may as well start soon.

  5. YES the majority of our gifts were handmade and I even managed to make for the men !! !!
    Love your gifts - xxx
