holiday crafts

Still on the crafts that were made lately, here's some of the things that were either custom orders or gifts I made for friends.

A few bookcovers... I'm really liking this new model a lot, and the suede / japanese fabrics combo looks so good I'll probably stick with this for my next batch.

This was one was for a secret santa exchange. I love the kitty fabric, and the buttons were the perfect touch.





This one was for a friend, who loves red as much as I do. And it contained this book which I recommend every time I have a chance.



A more masculine and sober version, for another friend.



And a custom order, to match a bag I made sometime ago



A couple of bags were also made. Here's a pocket bag with cream wool fabric as the background, instead of my usual corduroy or linen. I wasn't sure if the combination would work out, but it did so I'm sure I'll be using it again in the future



A reversible hello kitty bag





And a custom order bag for someone else who loves cats.



Finally, a new version of the pencil sleeves. Larger and with the button pocket on the side. I made one to go with my new red moleskine (it seems that eve ry one is having one of these for 2008) and a couple for some dear friends.

É bom ter-te de volta por aqui e como sempre com lindas coisas que fazes.

Adorei esta tua nova criação dos moleskines com as canetas, fizes-te apenas para esta ocasião especial ou também fazes por encomenda? E o preço? Estou curiosa!
Obrigada e um excelente 2008!
