Wrapped and given

This little gift was handed over on the weekend and I am really happy with how it turned out.

The dress/top is made from Sandi Henderson ginger tile in avocado from the Ginger Blossom range for the main part and has trim made from the Farmer's Market range also by Sandi Henderson.

The pattern is from That Darn Kat.

This is a size seven and was supposed to be a top - but the finished length is long enough for the recipient to wear as a dress/tunic with leggings underneath.

Here's her Make it Perfect Lazy Day hat made in Patty Young's Mezzanine range with a lining from Erin McMorris's Park Slope range. (yep still hoarding a little of that!)

We also gave her this book from the lovely ladies at We Heart books - it was gift wrapped when I got it so I didn't open it and take any pics but it has been very well received.
And on the pre-Christmas crafting goes - what's next??
