I made her one of Amy Butler's purse patterns called Stash and Dash bags. I dipped into my special fabric I have been hoarding. This is Amy Butler dot fabric and Heather Bailey Pop Garden fabric. I love how the fussy cut flower looks on this bag.
I have made myself a few of these bags and I love them. They are great to throw a wallet, keys, and a few other things in and go. But my favorite thing to use them for is my current sock knitting project. This bag is the perfect size! I also love the strap so the bag can just hang from your wrist.
I loaded her bag up with some goodies, including this pin cushion I made for her from some of my Hello Betty fabric.
I had to make a tuffet this month for A Year of Schnibbles so I thought I would make it as a gift for her. I used crushed walnut shells to fill it and I love the result. I bought a big bag from a pet store in the bird/reptile section. They weren't what I expected. They look like teeny tiny little pellets. The result is a nice, heavy pin cushion.
I made two sets of these Snow blocks for my two sisters that live nearby. We got together on Christmas Eve and had our traditional lasagna dinner. Yum! The blocks are painted and then I put vinyl lettering on them.
My daughter loved the socks and they seemed to fit well. She didn't want to take them off. She said they were nice and warm and cute too!
Speaking of my little sock lover... She has really taken off in her love of jewelry making. It is so fun to see her excel in a craft that I have no clue about. In the Christmas name drawing she got a teenage girl cousin on my side of the family and a teenage girl cousin on my husband's side. She really wanted to make them each a necklace and earring set. Here is what she came up with. It is so fun to see her designs.
I took a few days off from working on UFOs but I am back to it and should have something completed to share tomorrow. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We had a very relaxing, enjoyable day. I am soaking up the time with my family before kids have to go back to school and hubby has to go back to work. I love this time of the year.
