Christmas Projects

I have been sewing up a storm lately!  Man have I had a blast doing it too.  I have so much to show you.  A lot of them come from the SewMamaSew blog that did the Handmade Holidays in November.  These are all the Christmas gifts I've made and are giving out so if you are on my list, don't look. :0)

I saw this cute little pattern for this flower bag that is perfect for what I'm giving my sisters.  I didn't take a picture of what I put in them because I know Winni is going to peek. :0)  But they are so cute and you can do them in non-holiday colors for any time of the year.

I made this Layered-Drawstring Bag from the same post as the last.  I made mine bigger to try and fit everything that I'm giving to the Conklins but it's still not big enough.  Love it though and will so be making more of these too.

I Love all the things that I have been making because I have been able to use scraps.  I haven't bought any holiday material at all.

The next thing I made was corn bags.  Another scrap project that the only thing I had to buy was corn.

These are my neighbor/co-worker/teacher/kids friends gifts this year.  The big ones are for the adults and I made little ones for the kids to give out as hand warmers.

I finished up some more count down blocks and have them all done up to give to a few people.

But this is the one I'm most excited about.  Last year for Christmas I made Katy some minky blankets.  She loves them and can't sleep without them.  But they are small and she hasn't been staying covered up at nights.  My solution.  Make her a new blanket for Christmas this year.

It is one of her Santa gifts and I love how it turned out!  I found the pattern off Pintrest. (Yes, I'm addicted.) I have now decided this will be my new baby gifts that I make for people.

I really love the "K".  When Nate was drawing it on for me to sew we didn't even think what it would look like on the brown back.  Pretty awesome huh!

I've been trying some new recipes lately too from Pintrest but we eat them so fast that I forget I want to take pictures of them to share.  I did take pictures of the gingerbread men I made.

Nate likes taking them to work and putting on a puppet show for the guys before he eats them.  "No, no!  Don't eat me!"  "Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!"  "You've been caught."

Now I'm finishing up the corn bags, making new dog beds and a few other little scrap gifts.  To think that Christmas is a little over 2 weeks away is a little crazy.  I still have so much to do and just a little shopping left.  Mostly for Nate. ;0)
