I remembered that I had never posted pics of the gifts I made for Christmas last year. Unfortunately, I didn’t get pictures of everything. The gifts to my brother’s family ended up being so late that I didn’t even think about taking pictures. So here are some pics of things I’ve made up till now.
For Aaron’s brother-in-law, last Christmas, I made a blanket for his truck. The denim was new but the fleece was thrifted.
For his sister I made an apron because she loves to cook. It’s the same pattern as the one I made for me and modeled in my jammies. I was thrilled to find a duvet cover at the thrift store in the colors of her kitchen.
I don’t have the exact instructions from Brandy’s Wreck this Journal page but it was something about wearing your journal. So I asked her for a small section of the page which was black and made her a necklace, and a few others while I was at it. They aren’t super fantastic but they were fun to make anyway. I kept one and then she sent one to our sis and one to her best friend.
I fell in love with these kidlets when I first saw the tutorial and jumped at the chance to make them for Hope’s baby shower.
Aaron has been walking to work since June and started begging me to make him a backpack. After searching for sometime I found this design that I really liked and wanted to try to re-make. It was a bugger but it turned out awesome and Aaron LOVES it! It’s made out of a used military laundry sack and the patches on the front are from the units he served in while in the Army.
Now I seriously need to get busy on the rest of this year’s gifts. Christmas is creeping closer and closer.
I forgot about the messenger bag I made back in September for myself for school. I used this tutorial and this embroidery design (I love Urban Threads, they make we want an embroidery machine.)
It ended up being too small for school so it’s now my church bag and I found a brown curtain panel at the thrift store that will be my backpack after I’m done with Christmas sewing.
