I have slowly been making some gifts for Christmas. I have a little granddaughter who loves all things with Dora on them, so I came across some Dora fabric and made backpack for her. She starts school next year so maybe the backpack will come in handy.


So of course I had to make another one for her brother who loves Dinosaurs, so I have made a library bag for him. They will be in the same class next year.


Then I had this pattern for a basket to go with the table runner that I made earlier in the year so I have made it up to go on the table for Christmas, possibly with a few sweets or nibbles to go in it should look good.


I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and an enjoyable time with your family. It is always great to catch up with family at this time of the year.


  1. I am sure there will be smiles all around when you hand over the gifts to your Grandchildren. Your basket with look fantastic on your Christmas table filled will treats, very festive.

  2. Hi Marilyn, Nice job on the backpack, I am sure she will love it and your little grandson will love his dinosaur bag too. The basket will indeed go well with your runner. Happy Christmas. Di.
