My Christmas Challenge List (Kelly)

I have a couple of lists floating around on bits of paper and no doubt I will have forgotten someone so may end up tweaking the list a little.  But so far it looks a little like this:

2 x bag bags (the ones you keep old plastic bags in)
4 x applique tea towels
3 x skirts or dresses (for the littlies)
1 x vintage sheet picnic blanket (oh yeah this one is for me!)
2 x reusable sandwich wraps
1 x sewing bag (with fabric & other sewing bits inside)
3 x softies (two for boys and one for a girl)
4 x inspiration kits (I don't want to elaborate on this one as they are for friends)

And while the list looks short I haven't included family members that I will bake for.  Our (extended) family has grown so large and it would be impossible to buy for everyone so this year we are sticking to mostly immediate family.


  1. I made one of those bag bags from a tea towel... it was super easy. http://growingkiwis.blogspot.com/2009/03/i-can-sew.html

    What will you make the sandwich wraps from?

  2. I was just going to follow this one (http://www.chicaandjo.com/2010/02/01/fused-plastic-sandwich-wraps/) but if I fail at fusing plastic bags then I'll just use nylon.

    Actually I have a couple of teatowels I bought a few years ago which I had planned to make bag bags out of - wonder if I can find where I've put them hmmm

  3. I want to make some applique teatowels too.
    I just dont know where to buy good quality plain teatowels here in Sydney. You've got me intrigued with your inspiration kits.

  4. I bought Essex linen from Simply Solids (colour sand) for tea towels - you have just reminded me that it was one of my ideas for presents!

  5. Lovely ideas..looks like some happy people you know lol
