Christmas creating

I've been such a good girl this year so I decided to treat myself to an early Christmas present.

Like many of you, I adore Dottie Angel and her sweet creations.
This little treasure arrived  recently and it is everything I expected!

Yesterday I pulled out the machine and being all dottie angel inspired, I set to work making a Christmas sack for Lulu. I added the finishing touches today and oooh I love this kind of no rules creating, haphazard stitching, random doilies and buttons.. And all the pretty thrifted linens. Does it get any better?!
I added a fabric loop for hanging...I may change this to a drawstring.
I'm undecided. I kind of like the loop.

Have you been sewing lately?

How perfect! I have started to randomly use the word 'peachy' after reading Tif's blog! I love it too! Good on your for getting yourself that book - I may just ponder one now online! xo

Very sweet and pretty. There's been some lovely projects on her blog lately, hasn't there? I've got the book on my (long) wishlist. You have almost the same highchair as us.
