Making ...................

Well it is finally Thursday and the weekend is upon us Yippppppppppppeeeeeeee.
I thought I would show you some of the Christmas presents I made for friends at work.
My lovely friend H who I sit next to at work mentioned that she wished that she could find a mini hot water bottle one day, well that set me thinking.
The mission was set, find a mini hot water bottle and make a cover for it for her for Christmas & by chance I found a whole load whilst shopping in town one day.

So  I made her this for Christmas.

I made it out of an old jumper which I blanket stitched together and stitched a felt heart on the front.
She loves it, which is great. I like to give useful and needed presents.

I then had the bug and decided to make one for another friend at work out of an old shirt I had found in the CS, which was too pretty a fabric to throw away.

I washed it up and made her this.

She loved hers too, which got me thinking......
So as I said in my last post, I am thinking of selling on Etsy.
I came home tonight and had itchy fingers so made this.

I had some little Made by Chez Sophie labels made and I have set up my account, so all I have to do is make more pretties to sell.
I hope you have a fun Friday, I 'm off to work, then out to dinner with a friend and then it's the weekend!

A pretty idea and as always, Sophie, you are good at giving old things a new lease of life. Hope your Etsy does well.
