At this time of year I get in a complete panic when it comes to thinking about Christmas.
I have the small matter of all the others in the house having birthdays within a week of each other starting this weekend. List writing goes into overdrive!
Today, to try to get something ticked off the Birthday list, I did some satisfying sewing for the girls.
They had selected their own fabrics for a 'bag' each, which I said I would make for them. But sneaky Mama instead turned them into Leap Pad cases.
They have been going on and on and on about having Leap Pads, so we have told them that they would have to wait and see what Father Christmas is bringing; but only 3 more sleeps and they will find out!
I found this brilliant tutorial last night, and made this pair in a couple of hours this morning; and that included a lot of cutting pieces; I hate cutting.
A big zip pocket for extra games, Velcro to close, no fiddly buttons, nice flannel lining and fingers and toes crossed, once the consoles are out of their vacuum packed packaging, they will fit!
