Buttons and Ribbons and cosy stuff

Last year I came across a post on this blog
about making your own christmas gifts. I tried the microwave warmers and they were a great success.
This year I made some new ones and made little cushion covers to keep the actual cushions clean.

They were a little boring until I got an idea from this beautiful blanket which was given to me from my oldest son for christmas. I think he knows me very well. I love cosy blankets and am addicted to buttons and ribbons...
I have n't taken the tag off yet because I think it is lovely too !

He bought my present in one of my very very favourite shops.  Avoca Handweavers. Here is a link to them.
I filled my warmer with rice and made it long and not too heavy so I can drape it across my shoulders. It is great for soothing away shoulder tension from sitting over the computer ! Ha Ha,  I need that sometimes.

I used rub-ons on the buttons and the stamped tag is made from a stamp set from Papertrey Ink.
Is n't is just lovely !
