Secret Santa Swaps continued...

Last post I wrote about the lovely gifts I received in Chookyblue's Secret Santa Swap. I was Michell's SS in this swap and this is what I made her...
The main part of the gift started with some hexies cut out of Christmas fabrics...

And these were made into a drawstring bag...

The lining was also Christmas fabric...

And there were pockets inside the bag too...and in those pockets, I put some decorations which I had knitted or crocheted.

All ready to post...

At our Sunday Stitchers Christmas party we also had Secret Santa. When I wrote the blog post about that amazing day, I couldn't show what I'd made as the recipient couldn't be there on the day; instead receiving it in the following week.
So this is what I made...

Instead of making a cushion with EPP hexies, I made a hexie cushion out of triangles. The pattern is by Liisa from Quilters Corner and I used some sewing themed fabrics.
I'm already picturing this cushion made with Liberty prints...although if I think this through, I've been working on a hexie baby quilt in Liberty for months and haven't made much progress, so maybe best not to start a new project just yet! 😉
