the first thing on my list is this colorful pile of stockings~ i sewed them last year, each of them is made from a thrifted and felted wool sweater. they simply need linings and a little loop to hang from. no problem, that will only take an hour or so.
then there is this bunch of cotton flannel purchased at jo anns black friday sale~ i am head over heels In LoVe with those owl prints! cozy jammies are planned. that blue flannel with the cresent moons is the only print that would not have come home with me if esme' had not been there. she insisted. so we bought 2 yards. she wants it to be a pillow case with pj pants to match. i told her i would put them on my to do list.
i also bought the latest copy of sew simple magazine while at jo anns. i found the pattern for this little guy within it's pages. add him to the list.
i am organizing another handmade toy swap with all my crafty and uber talented girlfriends! last year we swapped some wonderful toys and this year promises to be just as FUN! photos of toys that i made and toys i received to come...
and, in additon to handmade gifts for my family and friends i am also participating in the big Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway day, December 3rd. be sure to come visit me, i will have something LoVeLy for you!!
yours in handmaking holiday goodness,
