kris kringle, revealed!

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!
