This weeks makes

Well I finished off all my family gifts for their Christmas presents, but forgot to take pictures doh!!!!!  Will have to get them to send me some pics.

I also finished this hat for my cousin.

He reminds me a little of yogi bear

She wanted a bear hat with a face, for when she mucks out her horse.  It was lovely to see her reaction, hope it gets plenty of use.

This is the hamper I put together for my Grandad for Christmas, he was made up with it.   And simple to personalise.............

Mine included ginger cake and carrot cake mixes, which he can make in his bread machiene (my Grandad is 86 and makes his own bread every week, malt loaf for himself and the family weekly and still regularly rides his bike, he is a legend).  Manchester marmalade, he is proud of his roots :)  A mini Christmas pud and mini custard.  Minature Jack Daniels and Gentleman Jack.  Whisky Toddy sachets.  Oatcake crackers and a mini cheese with pudding fruits.
I covered half a shoe box in wrapping paper, placed tissue paper in the base and covered it with cellophane.  You could pretty it up with a bow.

How are you getting on with your Christmas gifts?



  1. I love your bear hat, your cousin will love it and the hamper for your grandad is lovely - what thoughtful gifts! I really must crack on with my gift-making / shopping! x

  2. Thanks, she was really happy with it, so nice to see something you have made being used and enjoyed x

  3. Love the hat so cute!

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  4. I make up a hamper for my Grandad each year too. You have given me some great ideas here - thanks!

  5. It's such a good present for Grandparents isn't it, they generally have everything they need. And they appreciate the thought that goes into something like this. I dont't know about your Grandad, but I know mine doesn't treat himself to things so he loves getting presents like this. And I thought the mini versions of things was not too over facing for him, as I know he hates waste, but doesn't eat a great amount x
