1 month to go.....

... till the man in the red suit comes visiting......

I am linking up with Narelle's One Christmas Item a Month....

... and I made up some bon bons this week ....


I have put some bars of home made soap in them....


... makes up a nice little gift ....

This is the pattern I bought ....... 

and I have seen this tutorial by Cheryll....

they really don't take up too much time or fabric
and would be lovely filled with chocolates as table decorations

You can see lots of different Christmas items made through the year if you need a bit of inspiration here at Narelle's 

Righto..... Gotto Go.... I'm really not mentally ready for Christmas.....

Those look really lovely. With the soap added, are a perfect Christmas pressie! I have the same pattern. I'm about half way through the stitching on the front....I need to get a wriggle on! Like you, I am so NOT ready for Christmas! lol

Maria said...

Your Bon Bons look great filled with soap. Yes they are nice quick and easy gifts to make and fill with goodies.
I agree I just don't feel Christmassy at all..

Sheila said...

They are so cute Fiona and will make lovely gifts ! I can't believe it is only one month away ,I am far from ready :-(

katherine said...

Love the bonbons and with handmade soap inside makes them even more special. Not long now...the tree to go up and the house to be decorated (inside only) on the 1st as per our family tradition. I do believe that even when the girls fly the coup I will still be up a ladder stringing up tinsel etc. Mind you it all comes down again before New Years lol. Thankfully all the shopping is done and wrapped ready to go. I detest shopping when it is so busy.

Love the bon bon. You've just given me an idea for a Christmas lunch i'm going to where we need to give each other hand made gifts. :)

marina said...

they look great and the hand made soap is a good idea.
Only one month to go!
