Small projects before Christmas

After I finished all those big quilt tops (yet to blog), it always feel wonderful doing some smaller projects.
I love making drawstring bags and mug rugs and here they are. It's also a great way using up bits and pieces.
 
I have some Loralie mini panels (nurses) and I thought it might look nice on a drawstring bag...
 
 
...the other side...
 
 
Chocolate themed drawstring bag, perhaps for Valentine's Day...
 
 
...the other side...
 
 
Chocolate themed mug rugs...
 
 
... another one...
 
 
... and why not having a cuppa with this nifty nurse?! :)
 
 
An 'Arctic Holiday' mug rug, which I'm going to use during the Holidays...
Love those ol' Santas and the cute polar bears... :)
 
 
Fun projects to finish before Christmas, as I doubt there will be more sewing over the Holidays.
I have removed all my sewing stuff from the dining table - I didn't know the table is that big - LOL! I have other things I want to do over the Holidays, but I won't be surprised if I find a space for my sewing machine in another room... :) I shall see...

What nice items you've made Astrid. Those bags will come in handy as will the mug rugs. And as you said, now you're ready for Valentine's Day or any other chocolatey occasion. Merry Christmas.
