Little gifts for Christmas

I have finished two little gifts for Christmas: little needlecases which have an appliqued strawberry on the front and small patchwork squares on the back.

Here they are:

For this one I chose a fabric with small cherries as the background for the strawberry. Added a small pair of scissors.  This is my Secret Santa gift for my patchwork group.  We are meeting again on Thursday morning and the Secret Santa will take place then.

This one has a Vintage look to it and I have added a cute owl decorated tape measure. This is for a friend and now has to be wrapped ready for posting.

I love these little needlecases which are based on a pattern by Nanacompany.  I have made several in the last couple of years and all have been well received.

I love the patchwork backs, made from 1.5" squares so good for using up tiny scraps of fabric.

So, two gifts finished but I am still trying to complete the two bags I am making. Still lots to do there!



  1. Your strawberry pin keeps are so cute!! I love the way they use little squares. Have fun making the bags, there's always something to make isn't there.
