I do enjoy making Christmas gifts by hand...

... but too often I run out of time. It's several years since I've made one of these, but I was surprised and pleased at how quickly the fiddly part was accomplished.

Tonight I stitched grub roses onto four pieces of Dupion silk, ready to whip up some little Christmas gifts for my cleaners.

A different colourway for each.
I'll reveal these little items when I've managed to find my sewing machine under the growing pile of Christmas shopping, set it up and stitch up the necessary seams.
Any idea what they might be?
