I made a couple of gifts for a friends birthday. In an effort to be better at using zips I made a little purse out of this purple silk and added the button detail to it.
I also made some mulled wine flavour teabags using spices like cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and tied them in pieces of thin material and put a cinnamon stick in for a bit of variation.
The purse turned out rather well but I still need to practice using zips. Luckily I can get them for 10p each from the local carboot so I have lots to practice with.
