Ooh looking forward to see what you make. What about an apron? I'm not sewing any gifts here as I've only just started. I mainly make food and alcoholic gifts as that's what I am best at! My first :sewing: project is stockings for my 4 children so will see how that goes!

Not for xmas as such, but I have loads of jersey/interlock and want to make some jamie jumpers and pjs for the baby and Rhys, but I'm scared of making a hames of it as I've not really sewn with stretchy fabric much.

Might just chicken out and wait for my mam to come over and get her to do it for me, she is a professional after all :lol:

Hmmm they sound manageable @confusinglady. Otherwise I was thinking of some english paper pieced coasters and maybe place mats. Am thinking I may as well use all the fabric as cant see the need of any frog fabric myself!

Think a nice bag or an apron would be a fab gift for the MIL ;)
