A make a month ♥ January 2012


Well it is FINALLY the last day of January
(thank the lord!)
and as I mentioned before 
I have decided to post about the things I make each month
not shop makes though
but gifts and things that I make for myself and our home
at the end of each month I will do a little 
'show and tell'

I am hoping posting here will keep me focused

Here are my makes for January

This little one got a new dress

She is a gift for my gorgeous little niece who will be four soon 

A pair of muffatees...I was originally calling these 'handwarmers'
but then came across this wonderful post from annie over at knitsofacto
where she called them 'muffatees'
I felt so happy....what a fabulous word..... 'MUFFATEES'
I had NEVER heard them called that before
am I the only one? did everyone else call them muffatees?
anyway...thank you Annie x

These will be a gift too
but I cannot say who for
(blogs have ears and all that!)

and as I have mentioned before
 here is a gift that I have made for my best friend
It's a case for her glases
I hope she likes it

Well I shouldn't be sitting here blogging, I SHOULD be sewing
I have a couple of bunting custom orders to make
so, back to it

hope you are keeping warm
more soon
love j x


  1. You have made some lovely things - especially the muffatees! Your little robins will be on my blog later today - they continue to give me good cheer!

  6. They're LOVELY Jooles, warm, soft, and cheeringly colourful! Can you believe I left mine behind at the pub where I treated my older daughter to lunch yesterday. Luckily they hung on to them for me, but I was told that two or three of the staff had entered a lottery for them if they weren't claimed!

    Thank you for the mention ... isn't muffatees just the most irresistible word :D

    PS I think I'm in love with Puppers !

  7. All gorgeous Jooles! It is such a nice idea to do a monthly show and tell for all the lovely things you make for yourself, friends and family as well as all your shop bits and bobs - I would pinch your idea for my blog, but I think after my super duper creative week last week I might have exhausted the making for myself thing for a good few weeks now! Have a lovely rest of your week, stay wrapped up warm - isn't it horribly cold out there!! Jenny xxx

  8. Lovely little dress for the puppy, and the muffatees are so pretty!
    I am also glad to learn that name for them from Annie....such a pretty word!
    Have a happy week, Jooles!

  13. You are very talented Jooles, making all these gorgeous things. I love the colours you have used to make your muffatees and I'm sure your niece will treasure Puppers xx

  14. I'm still wondering how I could make myself a dress similar to that - I especially love that ribbon & the whole colour combo! Very German!
