Day 12 of 12 Days of Christmas Crafts

Happy Christmas Eve!!

And with that comes the very last day of 12 Days of Christmas Crafts!

(There’s mixed emotions floating around here…)

Like I said yesterday, this craft is the simplest of the lot and will literally take you 5 minutes or so to complete! (Go on, give it a go right now!)

So with that said and all videos uploaded, I would like to take this moment to wish you all a very Happy Christmas (and prosperous New Year!) and to also give my deepest thanks and appreciation for all the support and lovely, kind words you’ve all sent to me over the past year!

It truly does mean a lot!

Happy Sewing Friends!! xx


Day 11 of 12 Days of Christmas Crafts


It’s Day 11 already! And in 2 days time it’ll be Christmas!

Todays festive project is what I made and gave to some very special friends of mine.

I filled each bag with a bottle of some organically produced Shiraz (I bought it because the label looked pretty!) and hung a little Hessian Bird Tree Ornament from the neck of the bottles.

The final product will be in my Handmade Christmas Low-Down blog post that I’ll write and publish after Christmas!


So tomorrow comes with the last Christmas Craft episode of this little series!

I can’t wait to share it with you – it’s one of the most simplest projects yet!

Until then…

Happy Sewing Friends!! xx

Day 10 of 12 Days of Christmas Crafts

Day 10 is here!!

Holy-Moly, can you believe it’s only 3 more days until Christmas?! Oh my!

Surprising, I’m pretty much ready for the big day. I have a few cooking chores to do over the next few days but apart from that, I say ‘bring on the big day!’

If you’re still stuck on what to get that special someone aaannnddd you’ve got a knack for sewing up some quick seams, stay tuned for tomorrow’s Christmas Craft…it involves a bottle wine!

Day 9 of 12 Days of Christmas Crafts

On this awfully hot and humid summer’s day in Sydney Australia, I present to you Day 9 of 12 Days of Christmas Crafts!

I think this is such a fun and creative activity to do with kids.

Together you can go hunting for sticks and twigs in the backyard, then sort through them and finally make some really awesome down-to-earth tree hanging-thingys.

A word of warning, if you are thinking of doing this with your kids, perhaps use PVA or strong Craft Glue instead of Hot Glue – just to save little fingers from getting burnt! However it does mean the trees will take longer to dry…

So have fun, go crazy, be creative!!


Tomorrow is not only predicted to be another heatwave-of-a-day (40C+, YEESH!), but it’s also my nephew Noah’s 2nd birthday aaaannnnddd I’ll have Day 10 (!!) uploaded promptly in the morning!

Get out your tub of scrap fabrics cos this is a fun one!

Happy Seasonal Sewing Friends! xx


Day 8 of 12 Days of Christmas Crafts

Happy Day 8 of 12 Days of Christmas Crafts!!

I simply can not believe there are only 5 DAYS until Christmas! (Yeesh, this year has just flown by!)

Today’s craft has been specially made and modelled by my darling dog Lucy!

Lucy’s simple patience while I filmed her shocked me a wee bit, as she’s usually quite camera shy and tends to either look down or walk away! (Boo!)

See here as an example…

Me & my Lucy!
Me & my Lucy!

But this day she just sat there and let me do my thing! (Thanks Lucy-Juicey!)


Day 9 is all about recycling/upcycling/reclaiming fallen sticks and twigs and making them into something very creative!

Get you’re Hot Glue Guns ready!!

Happy Festive Crafting/Sewing Friends!! xx
