So, did you all have a wonderful New Year? I always find its a bit of a damp squid where a taxi costs £40 and pubs charge you to walk through the door to spend money!! Plus living in a City with 2 universities (yep, 2) it means we are over-run with students so town is a bit of a no go area. This meant we stayed in and watched a TV dramatisation about Tommy Cooper!
Now the tree is down, the Christmas cards cut up and I have already made some re-purposed cards ready for next Christmas (Sam Hettie you would be proud of me!).
So, this means I have had time to upload some more photos of the gifts I made over the past few months.
This time its mens gifts. Me are SO difficult to buy for let alone make for.
So this year I made 2 of the mens gifts, both basically the same with a few tweaks.
I covered a note book in leather. This one was for my Uncle in New Zealand. I added a binding to keep the book closed and I created end papers for the book with a map of wales (where he used to live before emigrating).
The next book I made was similar and for my brother. I made a wrap out of Ecuadorian fabric that he brought back for his wedding (he and his wife lived there for a few years)
I used maps of London (where they currently live) for the end papers.
So there you have it, a couple of presents for men-now if anyone has any other suggestions I have my brothers birthday on Valentines day!!!
