First time making christmas gifts...

Hello! My name is Erica, and I write two blogs, the first is Recycled Fashion, which encouraged me to learn to sew, and my second Recycled Sewing, which documents my sewing crafts, ideas and inspiration.

I've only started sewing in the last few months, so this is the first year I will be making gifts for Christmas, but wow, what a great feeling to make rather than buy!

So far, I have made the following:

1. Mini tie t-shirts for my friends boys. Using thrifted mens neckties, cut to size, ironed and machine stitched into place:

2. Chalk mats made from thrifted fabric:

3. Plastic bag holder/dispensers made from vintage teatowels:

I've made a doily rosette for my sister in law too, but I forgot to take a picture before I posted it to the UK, doh!

I am constantly inspired by reading all of your wonderful ideas on Crafty Christmas Club!
