Sewing for the Man

I've had a short break for Christmas after the rush for Personalised Santa Sacks in my Etsy shop - www.BonTons.etsy.com ended just before Santa arrived.

In that time I got an order from the Man for me to sew him a pouch for his GPS that he received for Christmas.

Custom request - it needed a clip added so it could be attached to the outside of a back pack when walking and have a plastic insert so the screen wouldn't get pushed in.

Turned out nicely. He was a bit worried when I showed him similar zip pouches I had in girly fabrics. Manly and I think he even likes the little compass embroidery!

School's Out

Another school year done and dusted. Time for holidays, going to the pool and trying to stay cool in this 38 degree C heat.

The girls received so many Candy canes this year, too bad one does not like them.

Our Owl gifts were the best! Kids all over said they loved them, which made me happy!

My plans to make Teacher gifts this year was over run by many Personalised Santa Sack orders, 5 Personalised towels for the weekend marathon of birthday parties, and of course the million owls we made as Christmas gifts to all our school friends!

So what did we give the lovely teachers, I love handmade internet shopping, so many lovely goodies available -

Beautiful Tea towel from FlowerPress.etsy.com

Cool Pac Man Magnets for our first male teacher from Iszle.etsy.com
