Slightly less busy than an elf... for now...

I hope everyones Mondays were not too bad :)
My making and crafting craziness has slowed down slightly now, my elf boots are all done:
And the Christmassy biscuit village I decided to make for when my friends came round on Friday didn't go to badly either :):

I think they enjoyed it, I thought it was quite tasty!
Hehehe, Lalaloopsy had her eye on it before my friends came round, bu I told her she'd have to wait :P
Saturday morning I managed to get all the headbands I wanted to make for my little cousins, all ready for Christmas eve! I am really thrilled with how they came out- I hope they love them:

They are modified version of the gnome hat pattern I made for the innocent smoothie, I added a gem, ribbon and a pom pom to make them super girly and kawaii! :3

Hehehe, they barely fit into the bags (Which I popped a chocolate freddo in too :P)
Just as I started to finish all my Christmas crafting projects, I and my family(!) have managed to start another- a Christmas table runner! We were watching the Christmas episode of the great British sewing bee and they did this group table runner project where each of them decorated their own square on the table runner and then they all got sewn together. It was lovely and we thought it would be nice to do the same :0)
I took some measurements of our table and came up with a design:

The middle panel and two end triangles are in red Santa fabric, all of the borders and dividers in a gold Christmas fabric and the four rectangles (with a cross in them in my sketch :P) are the rectangles me, my mum, dad and brother are going to decorate one of each!
This morning I drafted up the pattern, cut out all the fabric pieces and started sewing, here is one of the triangular end pieces so far, just to give you an idea of the fabrics:

Hehehe, now I just have to come up with a design for my square.... I have a couple of ideas so far.
 I will keep you updated on my family project! :D
Speak to you again soon,
Byeeeeeeeeeeee XxXxXxXxX Tis the season to be jolly, falalalala la la la la! xxx
P.s. My shop will be closing on the 18th of December for Christmas, so get in quick if you have any last minute shopping to do :P But it will be opening again shortly after Christmas day, with new stock coming for the new year! :)


  1. All lovely Christmassy things! Are you going to put elf booties in your shop? Maybe size 4 would be a good start ;)

    1. I don't have enough time to check fit (for sizes other than my own :P) and make a pattern for elf boots and get them on shelf in my shop and to people before Christmas, but maybe I can look at putting some up in the new year- in different fabrics, not so Christmassy, so more like fairy or sprite boots, If people would be interested? :) xxx

    2. I would wear them all year round :) tee hee... yeah sorry I didn't mean to rush you... I just meant generally in the future, because they are awesome!

    3. Hehe, don't worry- I'm not rushing :P I'm just so glad people like them! Thank you XXX

  2. Yummy! I really do looove the headbands!!! :D

    1. Hehehe :) Thanks, hopefully they will too! xxx
