Christmas Crafting

I have made a few Christmas gifts.  I have three snappy bags made, three more to go.  Pieces of a metal tape measure is what makes them go "snap".  I need to make three more.

I also made Christmas ornaments.  I was going to put a button in the middle, but I think I like it without.  What do you think?

 These were super easy to make, I just cut out the heart shapes with my pinking shears, sewed around the outside edge and stuffed them.  I added some pine essential oil to the stuffing, so there is a faint scent of pine to them.  I made six of them.
I won an awesome giveaway from Grey Dogwood Studio and Wyndham Fabrics.  First Blush fat quarter bundle and thread set.  I can't usually afford to buy fat quarter bundles, so I will save it for a special pattern.
Have you been busy making Christmas gifts?

Love your snap bags and ornaments! I have been wanting to make the snap bags but other things are more pressing. Congrats on the prize bundle. The Blush collection is gorgeous. Been having my eye on it but trying not to buy anything unless it's necessary to finish a project.

I **ought** to be making gifts but my mojo is lacking :( Fantastic prize!! Great idea to put the pine oil on your ornaments.

Cute gifts! I love those snap bags - in a longer & narrower shape, they make great sunglass/eyeglass holders.

I adore your pinecone hearts!

I need to make snap bags one of these days. I've been stitching up a storm, trying to finish Christmas gifts and baby quilts. Lots left to do.

I've never made a snap bag - must rectify that. Yours look great! Awesome win! I'd leave the ornaments as is.
