Okay I think this is my last blog post about handmade gifts for Christmas 2011. Then I promise to move on into the new year! Having got to grips with Heather Ross's (slightly fiddly) travel wash bag pattern from her book Weekend Sewing, I decided it would be the perfect pattern to repeat not once but four times as gifts for Mr & Mrs Biddle Senior and Mr and Mrs Biddle bro and sister in law. It worked pretty well doing it all in stages - cutting out all four bags, then doing all four zip sections, etc. And it was lovely to work with my Mr Biddle to choose fabric for each of them and decide what lovely toiletries to pop inside each one. Here they all are (in slightly bad light as I forgot to document them before wrapping and then had to steal them all back to photograph under a standard lamp!) - prepare for lots of photos.
