my handmade Christmas presents

As I write this post I am still working on finishing the last of my Christmas presents, that’s right, Christmas is not over in this house yet. One more apron to go! The week before Christmas all the girls in this house had nasty colds and one little baby with croup. So I went a whole week with nearly any sleep and not sewing a single thing. Thankfully, I have some very understanding friends and family. You know making most of your Christmas presents is way harder then just buying them from the store. So thanks guys for understanding! So here are a few of the gifts that were given away this year for Christmas.

Casserole carrier using melon from the Meadowsweet collection.

**Quick question: Would you think differently of me if you knew that I carried my casserole dish to Christmas dinner wrapped in aluminum foil? That’s right, I do not have a casserole carrier of my own!**
Velour terry cloth dish towels.
And lots of aprons! This was year that lots of little ones were getting their first kitchen sets and NEEDED an apron to go along with it.

This is one of my favorites! First of all, you know my love for orange, but also I love this plaid fabric from Michael Miller! Hope it makes a little nephew of mine happy.

So, am I the only one still working on their Christmas presents?

    LOL – I do that all of the time, make things and give them away leaving none for myself! And then I don't feel like making another one, or if I do, I give it away to someone else. The only exception to this rule is my little girls, they are always the first to get the skirts, dresses or jackets I make. My favorite little inspirations :)

  3. All of your stuff looks amazing. As always! You are one of the most talented ladies out there! And the sweetest!! Some people sure got lucky with their gifts this year!

    Thanks Krystal! I try to be a wonderful mommy, but sometimes I wonder if I am. As far as the dish towels I was planning on making some more for myself and will definately put together a tute for you. I had a hard time getting the corners right until I found a great tutorial on line that I would love to share. I still need more practice with bias tape and corners, but Im getting there.
