It’s a bit quiet around here isn’t it? I am ashamed to admit that this year I haven’t planned any handmade Christmas projects. I still have a bit of time though, so this might change. In the meantime here are some ideas I wanted to share with you- all these are under £20- so enjoy!
Isn't this necklace gorgeous? This last year I have been wearing loads of long pearl necklaces- it just goes well with a short bob! So pearls and bows are a win-win combination for me- and at less than £8 including postage this is a real bargain.
Everyone knows about Etsy, but did you know that there is a similar website solely dedicated to British crafts? There are some gems on Folksy, including this lovely little bow necklace- only £5.50 including postage- and lots of colours to choose from!
I have picked this lovely little set of Burt's bees products from Amazon when it was on offer. It has now gone up to £11.10 but it's still very good value. I started using the Burt's Bee lip balm last winter and it was the only one which kept my lips moisturised.
These knitting needles are so cute in their polka dot pouches- this would be perfect to convince someone to learn how to knit, and at £5.50 including postage it's such a bargain! You can find them at this Folksy shop- they are available in several colours!
This book includes 30 patterns and is only £3.37 on Play.com, with free delivery. The description on the website is quite detailed, sounds like there are different projects for different time-scales and "easier and quicker options are also provided throughout the book for when your best-laid plans go awry (as best-laid plans often do" Mmmm... It might end up as a present to myself...
That's it for now, I hope to come back soon with some handmade-related posts!
