Sadly today’s #12DIYsofChristmas is our last! It’s been fun finding little ways to be a bit craftier this Christmas. For this last make, I thought it would be fun to come up with a few last minute gift ideas for those family members and friends that you may have forgotten about.
Credit goes to my sister, a teacher, for sharing the idea of how to make these! All you need is some citrus fruits of your choosing and some time. It does take a while, so pop a Christmassy film on, set a timer for every 30 minutes and enjoy the fruits of your labour (sorry!).
Today’s make for #12DIYsofChristmas is one of my favourites. I love beauty tricks and this one will only take a few minutes out of your day and yet is one that you’ll want to make over and over again. It is, of course, an exfoliating sugar body scrub and it makes a great gift for friends and family or as a treat for yourself.
I always knew I wanted to make a skirt out of this fabric. It’s a lovely, quite thin, tweedish material, which wasn’t the greatest to work with to be honest. However, I persevered and it just so happened that I had some grey lining material in my stash and I, who literally HATES to line anything, actually lined this one.
As I didn’t follow a pattern it isn’t the greatest skirt in the world. There’s a bit of bunching in one corner and I want to redo the hem, but overall it’s ok and I’m not a perfectionist, so I’ll happily wear it until I fix those niggles. I also wish I put pockets in it. I did cut them out but plain forgot to put them in until I’d sewn the sides. Oh, the trouble with self-drafting.
Things may be a bit quiet here for a few more weeks but I’m hoping to schedule some posts soon. In the meantime, enjoy the lovely weather we’re having at the moment. I certainly will be.
