Sew this is Christmas…

It’s Christmas and there’s a credit crunch on (you may have heard), so what’s a girl to do but get crafty? Over at Bugs And Fishes, she’s got tons of brilliant tutorials on making your own Xmas decorations, like these super-cute puddings and wrapping paper designs.

(For anyone who’s all thumbs, she also sells her own decorations over at Etsy. My favourite are these cute-as-a-button gingerbread men. Love them.)

And just in case you need a bit of motivation, why not invest (note I said invest, not buy!) in this fantastic print from Pedlars. It’ll be of great comfort when you’re darning socks in 2009 😉
