Pop star Hilary Duff is hoping to be sewing up a storm this Christmas (05) after asking boyfriend Joel Madden for a special festive gift.

The SO YESTERDAY singer wants the Good Charlotte rocker to splash out on a sewing machine this Christmas.

She says, "It's so dorky but I love knitting on the airplane because I get bored.

"I'm making a scarf for my sister... but I need a sewing machine to be able to finish it because I'm going to put fabric on the back of one side of it."
