Running out of time.....?

Is there anyone else who feels like they are running out of time when it comes to Christmas? Well, I most certainly do! I still have 5 presents to make. So, I need some gifts that don't take much time to make.
Here is 1 I finished this morning....A wristlet.
It's for a friend of mine who is always carrying around her keys and mobile phone because she hates handbags!!! Can you believe it? Well, I hope this will help make her life a little bit more hands free!!

This is a quick and easy present to make - this one took me only 1/2 hour from start to finish.
This one is made with some Amy Butler fabric I have had for ages and not known what to do with it. IThey aren't really my colours but I loved the combination together and I know "she" will like it.
It measures 8 1/2" x 6 1/2", I used an 8" zipper and cut 5 strips, 2" wide and 8" long.
Too easy!!! There is a tutorial on my sidebar if you'd like to know how to make one for yourself....You will just need to add the handle.

I think I'll make some more!

You are so clever, 1/2 an hour to make that little wristlet! God by the time I find the time to sew these day I have no inclination & vice versa. I wish I could just have 1 whole day to sew, that is a distant dream though....oh well such is life! Hope you get caught up on your pressie making, bet you are all done & dusted by the weekend!
