What an amazing and incredibly sweet idea for those family Christmas mornings xx

As part of the festive preparations this week I’ve been rummaging in the loft for this Christmas sack I made last year for Harry, which makes an appearance in the hearth miraculously on Christmas morning, dusted with snow straight from the Big Man’s sleigh. I wanted to make him something very personal, and something that also looked realistic enough to help to sustain belief in Father Christmas for as long as possible, as well (of course) as being a handy receptacle for the presents themselves.
I ran up the sack itself from lengths of hessian and fleece (for more details see the downloads below), and added authentic-looking labels which I’d designed and then printed onto fabric transfer paper before ironing onto scraps of linen from an old tablecloth which had become stained beyond rescue. Some of the labels I then glued onto leather, before stitching them all in place.
