Got time for some craft making!

Finally I got some time to make some crafts as today is a holiday (Selamat Hari Raya Haji to all our Muslim friends)!!! Andy has been working overtime for the past few weeks that family time has almost reduced to zero and leaving me to run the household and I have no time to do any crafts. I so missed my sewing machine! Christmas is around the corner and there are so many gifts that I have yet to make!!! Arrgghhhh...*panicking*...

Ok today I managed to squeeze in some time to make two simple totes (pattern from Amy Karol's Bend the Rules Sewing book). I used a Japanese fabric which has little girls and boys on it and it look so cute! Perfect for little children. One of the tote is a birthday present for my neighbour's daughter who is of the same age as Georgia and the other same tote is for the Christmas gift exchange for Georgia's nursery Christmas party this coming Monday! I'll be making Disney cookies for her to bring to school for potluck!

I also made a sling bag for Georgia (as she has been asking me to use the Japanese fabric with the elephant print to make her something for a long time!). I sewed a tiny pocket in there too. She was estatic when she saw the completed bag. I love the bag too and the fabric is just so pretty!

OK, I still have more Christmas presents to make and I also have to prepare the dinner and also clean up the house!!! Haha! I'm hope I can squeeze in some time later for more crafts!!! ^_^
