Last year some friends and I started doing Arsty Secret Santa, which is basically exactly what it sounds like - making crafty things to give to people for Christmas. It's an activity that's cheap and utilizes my creative skills. So of course, I love it.
The last time I participated, it took me forever to post the resulting gift and tutorial on my blog. This year, it's only taken me a month! I'm getting better.
For this year, I made a pair of winter gloves (along with a matching reusable tote bag) and an illustrated card for friend and fellow illustrator Jenn Liv. I actually posted the results of her card last week.
I didn't have time to document the gift process, so there's no tutorial. I did document the end result. The gloves and bag are made from screen printed fabric, a sweater (for the lining), and scraps of ribbon.
I'm pleased with how they turned out.
