Merry Christmas!

I guess I decided to make some handmade Christmas gifts this year after all. Originally I wasn't going to do it but then decided I should use my skills to make some fun and unique things. My husband's side of the family isn't crafty so I figured this was a good excuse to give them each something handmade made especially for them. We're pretty crafty on my side of the family but I still wanted to give some of my family members some fun things anyways.

I'll be out of town and up in the mountains until late next week for the holidays. I'll be hanging out with family without any cell phone service or Internet.....sooo.....
Merry Christmas!

For some eye candy...here are some of the things I made for this year...

A couple pouches filled with fun goodies for my nieces

A 241 Tote bag for a really good friend stitched with her name on it

A stocking for my daughter to keep at my parents house for Christmas morning
Patchwork Stocking

A San Francisco 49ers Banner to for my Brother in law ( approx. 18"X22" & made with felt)
I also made 4 mini versions for 4 of my nephews ( approx. 6"x9")

Hand stitched in Gold Metallic Perle Cotton (a pain to work with)

My husbands parents and sister will be receiving handmade gifts as well but they're not sewing projects so I won't bother you with those.

All the totes except the Briar Rose version in this post were for Christmas gifts as well.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
See you in 2014!
