last night's kris kringle swap was amazing! lots of great food and even better company, and now that my swap partner has been revealed, and she's got her present (and i think she liked it to boot!), i can share my little late night crafty project with you!
i started by picking some vintage floral (of course). thanks be to susan l for this cute piece.
i then measured the diary against the fabric, and with a bit of a press and a few seams with my machine...
ta-da! a nice little vintage wrapped diary for next year. i was pretty happy with how it turned out, especially considering i wasn't using a pattern and i started making it at about 10 at night... much like this project from the start of the year really.
this project took a little longer as i wanted to add a little personalised touch. as much as i'm not a big fan of embroidery (especially at 11pm!), it does add a lovely little bit of personalisation :D
merry christmas adelaide!
now i'm off to do some more christmas gift stitching, 3 christmassy stockings, lined with some cute vintage fabric. 3 hours til work, wish me luck!
