Christmas presents so far

Now I have no idea how this actually happened, but I've been roped into making quite a few christmas presents for my neices and nephews which will be coming from Santa.
My list so far is:

3 tutus
2 crayon rolls
4 sock monkeys
2 fairy wands

aswell as everything I am meant to be making for presents from me! (I cant list it here incase the recipients see but theres alot sob sob)

So far all I've managed to make is 1 tutu and 1 crayon roll.

I went for the easy option of no sew tutus - this one is for a 3 year old - short and poofy rather than long and floaty

The side looks like its sticking out weirdly but I swear its not! Its just my bad camera skills!
I just did a quick google of no sew tutus - loads of tutorials come up so take your pick! They are so easy, quick and cheap to make (and will look quite large wrapped under the tree of course lol)

I've also made

Baby Knitting

Well I'm now 26 weeks pregnant with my first little boy and thought it was about time I crafted for him. I've made this blanket before for my neice and was really pleased with how it came out so I of course had to make it for myself!

Our camera is still out of action so once again, apologies for the awful photo! (also ignore the packet of Cadburys snow bites which snuck in the picture!) It just needs a run through the wash and a reshape and it will be finished! A bit more interesting than the pastel colours that all shops seem to insist on babies being covered in anyway.

Then I made this!

It looks neater in real life I swear! I just hope it fits because it is too cute not to use. If its too small it will just have to become a teddy bear's hat for the nursery.

Now onto the next thing...which should probably be christmas crafting, not long to go!
