Christmas Prep: Homemade Pressies

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat... and I'm getting organised!!

Last year we decided to have a homemade Christmas, largely due to very tight purse strings and an abosolute abhorration of Christmas the shopping season. This year is the same, we are largely making our presents this year and this time I'm starting early!

This first completed gift is a crochet bag for a little girl we know. It took ages to make considering the size but I think she will like it because it is her favourite colour: purple.

There's supposed to be a flower on the front but my problem is I can't decide which one to use! So I thought I'd ask your opinion. Please let me know which combination works best because I just don't know!

Option 1 - large dark pink flower

Option 2 - small light pink flower

Option 3 - both flowers together

Both flowers together for comparison, the light pink is a fair bit smaller

I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. Ooh I think my vote goes with the dark pink flower although I've spent a lot of time flipping between the two photos. I'm terribly indecisive, I really shouldn't be offering up my thoughts.

  2. Love! Could you put one on each side of the bag? I like both though prefer the dark pink, then she can show a flower whichever way she carries it :-)

  3. That is so cute! i am sure she will love it. I like no 1.

  4. Thanks to everyone for their feedback on here and on twitter and at my knitting group. I decided to go with the dark pink flower and even added a small pearl button in the middle. Looks fab even if I do say so myself!


Talk to me, leave me a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
