Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew Link Up

Welcome to this month's Link up! I'm so glad you are here. I was absolutely delighted when Fiona @ Celtic Thistle Stitches asked me to host the Link up. I think the idea  of getting ahead with our Christmas makes is absolutely brilliant! I have found myself every year trying to scramble my handmade gifts in the week leading up to the holidays and it is absolute madness.

Christmas Gift Bag

Since you are all coming up with great handmade gifts I thought I'll share with you an idea of how to wrap your beautiful handmade gifts this Christmas. I created a tutorial for this string bag that your gift recipients could save or re-use. You can find the tutorial here.

We'd love to see what you have been up to. Please link up you holiday makes below. You have until the end of the month to add your link and automatically be entered on the giveaway. 

And now on to the giveaway! This month's giveaway is this beautiful Be Jolly Mini Charm Pack by Moda donated by the kind people of The Fat Quarter Shop

Thank you so much Fiona for inviting me to host this month and to all of you for stopping by!.
Also, a big thank you to all the sponsors of the monthly giveaways:
