Birthday's galore!

Well another week has gone by and Christmas is fast approaching.  But we seem to have been to lots of birthday parties recently - unfortunately they are all parties of 3 year olds but it has been keeping Josh happy though.  Boy does he have lots of friends!

Talking of birthdays I am getting fed up with  buying buying buying all the time.  It seems never ending and Christmas is just around the corner aswell.  So yesterday I decided that for a friends little girl's birthday I would make something instead and everything I used was from things I had around the house.  And this is what I made.

It is a little purse that is made from felt.  The idea came from 'Super-cute felt' by Laura Howard.  A new book in my collection but I think it will be a well used book.  I really enjoyed making this purse and managed to get it done in a day, so there may be more of these for presents.

Thought I would just include a close up.  Sorry!

Also managed to cast off my Karise Shawl this week.  I am yet to sew the ends in and block it but here are a couple of pictures of it anyway.

I think it will look much better once blocked and then it will be ready to give to my mum for Christmas.  Yeah another gift made.  Yippee!

Well now to get on with finishing off a cardigan I started last week for my newest nephew.

Hope you all have had a good week.

  1. Hi Morag,
    Thanks so much for linking me to this post - your purse turned out great! Would it be okay for me to include one of your photos of it in a future blog post about things people have been making from my book? No worries if you'd rather not! :)
    Best wishes, Laura x
