Its my annual round up of fabulous sewing gifts for crafty people. This is a selection of gorgeous sewing related items I have found on the internet over the last few months many of which are on my own personal Christmas list! There are just so many GORGEOUS items (big and small) to choose from. Leave this blog post open on your computer to drop massive hints for Christmas presents!!

I'd love to know what you think of my choices. Do you have any favourites?

I'm starting with this beautiful Personalised Silver Button Charm Bracelet by Button & Co. £120. Such a clever design with the needle going through the button. They have other lovely items in this range too.

I love these quirky little 'I'm Sew Happy' Notepads by Tea & Ceremony £4.50. I always have a list on the go so these would be perfect for me. Tea & Ceremony have very kindly given me a couple of notepads to give away on the blog so watch this space very soon!

I want one of these 'Vintage Map Roses in Wooden Cotton Reels' by The Bird & The Button £9. Such a clever idea using vintage cotton reels and maps. They would look great in my sewing room!

This very stylish 'Bronze Vintage Style Sewing Kilt Pin' by Its The Little Things £6 would look great on a coat or bag.

It always useful to have some good scissors in your craft room so these small Sewing Scissors by Crabtree Lane £4.75 would be very handy. I love the packaging too!

This 'Sewing Tool' by MIY Collection £10 is such a great idea. You can use this little gadget to mark seam and hem lines, mark the bias at 45 degrees, use the point to poke out nice pointy corners and use the holes to dreaw circles.

This set of Patchwork Tiles by Welbeck Tiles £75 have been on my Christmas List for the last 3 years! A girl can dream!! They are just so pretty and I love them more and more each year. One day they will be mine!!

A girl can never have enough ribbon which is why I love this 'Ribbon & Dispenser Set' by Jane Means £25. Sets are available in different colours and contain 5 x 10 metre rolls of ribbon.

These very cute little 'Ceramic Spool Scented Candles by Lindsay Interiors £9.99 would look lovely in my lounge. Such a cute idea.
