This Years' Gifts / Les Cadeaux Cette Année


Aren't these just the cutest? You need to be of a certain age to know what they were for back in the non digital days (hotel room key tags). 
I had them made to go with the key fobs I made for everyone. I thought this would put a dent in the leather and ribbons bits leftover but it didn't make a notch!

C'est-tu pas cute ça? Il faut avoir un certain âge, non-digital, pour savoir à quoi servaient ces étiquettes plastique (clés de chambre d'hôtel).
Je les ai fait faire pour aller avec les porte-clés que j'ai fait pour tout le monde. J'ai pensé que ça m'aiderait à utiliser mes restes de cuir et de rubans divers, mais ça n'a fait aucune différence.


I also made some pin cushion key rings (tutorial here) and more of those little tweed pin cushions because they are so cute too.

J'ai fait quelque bagues pique-épingles (tutoriel ici) aussi et quelques coussin pique-épingles en tweed parce que c'est ben cute ça aussi.


Then in the mist of my coat building, SĂ©bastien came over and asked if we could make a handbag for his mother with one of his old sail and I surpassed myself. This is the prettiest most professional looking handbag I have ever made. It's the same pattern as the Marni but with some Dacron and leather. Seb who rigs sailboats for a living made the handles out of black rope. His Mom was extremely happy.

Puis en plein milieu de la construction du manteau, SĂ©bastien est venu avec un bout de vieille voile pour voir si je ne pouvais pas faire un sac pour sa maman. Je me suis surpassĂ©e, c'est le plus beau et le plus professionnel que j'ai jamais fait. C'est le mĂŞme que le Marni avec du Dacron et du cuir, Sebastien qui sait grĂ©er Ă  fait les poignĂ©es en bout d'amarrage noir. Sa maman Ă©tait enchantĂ©e.


CosmicCaro, Katrina and Mertxe left comments on my second giveaway post so I'll send a little something handmade to all three of them. 
Surprising people with gifts is a really good way to start the year.

CosmicCaro, Katrina and Mertxe ont laissé des commentaires pour mon deuxième appel alors je vais leur envoyer à toutes les trois un petit quelque chose fait à la main.
Surprendre les gens gentils,  y'a rien de mieux pour dĂ©marrer l'annĂ©e.

  2. That bag is amazing, and the ring pincushions and key fobs are a great idea too. My husband forbid me to even think of handmade gifts this time around, but I'll tuck these ideas away as inspiration for next Christmas!

    1. The idea is to start now, not only will you be ready for Christmas, but you'll have little gifts to give all year.
