Secret Revealed

Now that all the presents have been received and enjoyed, the food and bubbles dispatched and the loved ones sent home with hugs and kisses.

It's Time to reveal the secret sewing.

Stripy pink socks became a "monkey" for dearest grand daughter this Christmas.

By the close of the day Pinkie was as ready for bed as DGD.

The other stitched gift also went to DGD. O.K. so it just looks like a bag right?  Well it's not just any bag it's a one off solution to a 10 year old girl's admiration of the most wonderful bag owned by a dear family friend.

The gosh it was wonderful description was of a seatbelt handbag with a real seatbelt buckle. Definitely some handbag envy happening here !!!

I did some research, of the on line type. Followed by a lot of what and a bag woven of belting with a polka a dot lining was under the tree.

Pink was the colour of my Secret Christmas Stitching this year. While pink is not one of my go to colours I  really did enjoy  all the stitching, weaving and stuffing. Making things is who I am and sharing them is my pleasure.

Enjoy the season  Terry

That is a very cute sock monkey! And the bag looks great, too.

I'm a huge fan of hot pink, the more the better!! That monkey is so cute, it has the sweetest face. The bag is very cool!! It looks tricky to make so well done!! I bet both these gifts will be loved and treasured!

I think you have made two little girls very happy! The monkey's face is the nicest I can imagine, and the bag is ever so fine.
