Well I wanted to make this a handmade Christmas and I really did try, but two failed patterns got the best of me and it turned out not quite as handmade as I wanted … but I loved the gifts I did make and I felt good about those that I ended up buying too. It was still a wonderful (much scaled back) Christmas!
The handmade gifts that worked:
Superhero Capes (made for E and Claire and my niece, Katie) ~
Side One – I made a superhero monogram. The girls were in pink/purple felt.
Reverse Side – E’s had the star from SuperWhy and the girls had crowns.
Make- Up Bag for my sister ~
I loved this Japanese bird print and the punch of orange lining fabric! I packed this full of make up/facial products I’d been gathering the last few months.
Lesson learned AGAIN … start Christmas gifts in July!!!
