I love making my own shortbread, and it’s such an easy make, so it’s no surprise that Festive Shortbread makes an appearance each Christmas!
At this time of year I tend to make either traditional shortbread, or some fun stars with various toppings. Makes approximately 20 stars depending on size… a couple of rounds you can score to snap into triangles if you’re feeling traditional, or of course the classic shortbread fingers.
Hoop art, is definitely more popular now than it was a few years ago, and it is a great craft for making a gift, or even decorating at Christmas, there are SO many great Christmas fabric designs which are really good fun for many projects; and it is nice to have a different use if you’re not big on sewing, as I wasn’t up til a couple of years ago!
This post contains items which I have kindly been gifted * All opinions are my own.
Christmas fabric is also a great eco friendly alternative to paper for wrapping! Especially for those harder to wrap gifts!
Throughout Blogmas I will be sharing some different ideas for handmade gifts and other items! Today I am sharing this easy quick project that makes a great stocking filler gift! A great, quick handmade gift idea is cross stitch bookmarks!
As a cross-stitch project these are quick and easy to make; great for beginners as you really can make them as simple as anything, using patterns and abstract designs. Though if you are more experienced, you can choose a more challenging design.

Quentin Blake and his illustrations are well known; and well loved by many generations! I’m delighted to share this collaboration with the Science Museum; and look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Best known for his illustrations in books by Roald Dahl and David Walliams, Quentin Blake’s fun style is immediately recognisable, and has held a special place in my heart since reading many books featuring his illustrations from childhood!
