Sewing Christmas Present Video

I know Christmas feels like aeons ago now but I made a quick video of the sewing related Christmas presents that I was given (and a couple that I bought myself with money I was given for Christmas).

If you don’t want to watch the video, basically it’s 4 bits of fabric, a magnetic pin dish, a polka dot notions set, a hemming guide thing and a mug. But I show you them with much more enthusiasm (and you can see the festive puppies on the spare bed one last time before I have to finally accept Christmas is over and change the bedding).

The blog I mention in the video is The Fabric Alchemist (and her name is Meris, not Nerys, so I was pretty close). The post of hers that I saw the hot hemmer on was this gift guide and a lot of the other things on the list look pretty cool too.

This feels very short but there’s not really much to say and I need to go frantically sew to try to finish the Southport dress I’m making to take on holiday with me on Saturday – squee!

  1. Yay for magnetic pin dish! Love mine. Aww your nan sounds so cute, and the fabrics she chose are very sweet. The hot hemmer sounds interesting, I think I’d seen it before but didn’t know what it was called nor what it did. Interested to see what you make of it.

    1. Yep, the magnetic pin dish is great. I really should have got one sooner!

      My nan was really sweet when she was telling me all about her fabric buying adventures. The fabric is probably a bit more twee than I would tend to choose for myself but the thought behind it makes me love it.

      I really like the hot hemmer, it makes it far easier to measure and press hems without burning myself or melting the little plastic bit on my seam gauge. 🙂

Gimme a clue
