Bottle dressed creation, Buttons, Fabric, Fabric creations, Fabric off cuts, Ribbon and Felt, Stitching Santa Gifts
A couple more quirky fabric giveaways for the recipient of my Lovely Lady in the ‘Stitching Santa’ Swap…hosted by the lovely Sheila from Sewchet
Using Fabric off cuts, with a lovely festive feel, holly and berries, I made a pair of figure hugging outfits for the lovely… Crisp & Fruity little number as well as her Rich and Spicy friend!
Even if my lovely lady doesn’t take a tipple, I hope they will stylishly decorate her festive table, before she gives them away!
The holly fabric has been hemmed both ends, then the neck end gathered to fit. A piece of hessian has been stitched and turned, before being frayed carefully to form a little rustic shawl. A little ribbon has also been encompassed before adding a decorative pair of wooden painted flower buttons. Finally a little round of felt and matching fabric have been stitched and turned out to form a little hat/mop cap, also with matching flower button…They look quite a pair in amongst the ‘fluffy snow’;-D
You know what??? I think I am actually ready with all my bits and bobs for my Lovely Lady’s gift 🙂 I’ve purchased six items for EXACTLY £10.00, then acquired two more with free vouchers = 8 shop derived items! Then, I have made seven individually handmade items, PLUS a handmade card = 8 also! So, hopefully, the 16 little combined gifts will bring a happy smile from Stitching Santa!!
With nervous excitement all that remains is…to box, parcel and send!!

These are so cute Caren. Such a lovely way to give someone a bottle of wine over the christmas season.
Thanks so much Sue 🙂
that’s a wonderful idea. I bought two santas for dressing up a bottle. I fist was happy because one was 30 cents… but I noticed at home that one has a hole and the other one has only one arm…oh my…
Oh No! Still….a bargain price 😉 maybe your could stand the bottles in such a way together to hide each other’s little faults?? 😉

A selfie of the two of us ~ how cool hahahahahahaha
LOL…don’t we look smart ;-D !!!!!
Mrs P said:
Not harf, now we just have to decide who is fruity & who is spicy LOL
I reckon that is for us to know and let others ponder…LOL Surely that allows us scope on the razzle??? 😉
Mrs P said:
I’m super impressed you managed to capture the two of on film looking so dapper, I ought to take my Sunday best off ready to be glittered up for Christmas day xx
These little holly and berry numbers are so figure hugging I’m wishing you luck with that..!!..tried a few times to extract myself…but, think I’ll have to wear it until Christmas day LOL ~ not to worry though, the tin bath tub is only three weeks away (as mentioned) so should still be sweet by the big day??!!!! 😉
Mrs P said:
I have to admit Beloved has to grease me up to get the darn outfit off …gosh only 3 weeks till the great bathing ritual ??? how time flies LOL
Very sweet. Well done!
Thanks so much! They were so quick to make but I love the results, hope the recipient does too 😉
Wow, how many things for a tenner? And lots of handmades, too – what a lucky recipient! Can’t wait for all the reveals:)
I couldn’t believe it either!! We had a trip down to S. Wales last week to visit our son and watch him in concert, on a rare shopping spree I came across the wonderful ‘Flying Tiger, Copenhagen’ Shop in the centre, never even heard of it before!! To my son’s amazement (and utter embarrassment too LOL) I entered the exit door and toured the shop ‘backwards’ milling my way through the throngs of customers going ‘the right way’ A fab way to browse twice, I think, on the way back to the tills, I picked up six brilliant stocking fillers fit for a sewer and have the receipt still as proof of the £10 spend!! The mini wines and candies were acquired using a supermarket points voucher, so no spend there ~ just hope my lady likes the little bought and made bits and bobs 😉
Of course she will – we’re all like-minded folk so she’ll love what you love! It’s fun doing an anonymous-until-Christmas swap, isn’t it? The excitement just builds and builds:)
