Crafty Ribbons Advent Event Day 21

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with some little gifts I have made for our Christmas advent event at Crafty Ribbons today. These are little lavender pouches made with capsule collection fabric and felt on the reverse from Papermania, and Christmas ribbons from Crafty Ribbons. I cut the front panel of fabric first and machine sewed on the ribbons-you have to go slow doing this as you cant pin the ribbons, so have to feed the fabric and ribbon through the machine slowly. Next I placed the fabric panel against the felt right sides together and sewed all round, just leaving a slight gap to pull the right way out and then fill up with the lavender. Lastly sew up your little gap for the lavender once its full enough for you. They make lovely inexpensive gifts :-)

I would like to enter these into the following challenges:

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments :-)
