I sewed until late the night before we left for NY, to spend with Jennie and her sweet family for Christmas. I was able to finish everything I wanted to make, except my Christmas stockings. Picture to follow at the end of post.
Two potholders for Jennie, they are made with some of our favorite fabric and I hope they bring cheer to her kitchen. I used the tutorial I found HERE!
Two lined drawstring bags, the green one for Silas and the blue one for Norah. They held a couple of gifts for the bath for them. They were so fun and easy to make. I used a wonderful tutorial I found HERE. There are so many variations for making these bags, I am hoping to make a patchwork bag for me soon!
And I just had to make another pink cupcake purse for Norah, after she saw the one I made for Chloe, she wanted one right now!! She is keeping all of her baby changing and necessities in it. I used this tutorial HERE. I did add about an inch to the width and height, also a little ruffle for the flap, because I didn’t have enough rick rack.
Now for my partially finished stockings. Here is a quick picture of the fabric and what they will sort of look like. I still need to make the patchwork for the toes. We should have them ready for next Christmas, I hope!! I am using Jennie’s tutorial HERE and can’t wait to finish them, they are really cute, I only wish we had had our three to hang with their five, adorable!!
I had a wonderful Christmas, I hope you did too! I am ready for the New Year and all of the things it will bring. Sewing, blogging and now Instagram!! I am now on instagram as Cloverandviolet2. If you would like to follow me I would love it and I will follow you too!!
Oh and I did get some new fabric for Christmas I will show later on. I have some catching up to do on my Quilty Fun Sewing Along, I have a post coming up January 20th. Can’t wait to share my blocks!!
Have a great rest of the day. I have been picking up and putting away things that were left strewn about before we left on Tuesday. It feels good to be home and catching up on things. Starting tomorrow I will be cleaning up my sewing room, it really needs it. I have layers of fabric that really needs to be put away.
