Here are the last few pictures of sewing projects I made for gifts. Still have one gift to finish so can't show a picture of that yet. And, I have a few other miscellaneous gifts to show, but these are the sewing ones.
For a little grandson, I decided he needed his own little library tote. His older siblings have these. They are made from dish towels and are easy and fun to make.
|I actually bought the dish towel for this while we were visiting their family. I always give a book when I give a library tote.|
If you want to try making some, here's the link: Little Library Totes .
For my newest little grandson, I had to make a name banner to go along with the Happy Birthday banner I made for his family last year.
|Half of the banner|
|The second half. I have no idea why these photos are so different in size; maybe because I had to stand far back to get all of "Birthday" in. This project came from Alicia Paulson's wonderful book Stitched in Time.|
I also made a "dogbone" pillow for his mom's birthday which was just after Christmas.
|I was trying to sort of replicate a pillow she already owns which gets a lot of use. This one turned out to be a bit smaller.|
You can see the print sort of coordinates with the pillowcases I made for her and her hubby for Christmas.
Also, I previously showed a couple other sewing projects on my Christmas blog. One was these little purses.
You can read about them here: Little Purses.
|These are made from the little fabric pouches that some pillowcases come packaged in. This is the front of the purse.|
|And this is the back of the purse. I made these for my two youngest granddaughters.|
And then last of all I made some more felt food.
|Orange, cherry and lime felt popsicles|
|Felt Christmas cookies|
You can see more pictures and read about that here:More Fun with Felt Food.
And there you have (for now) the last of my Christmas sewing projects!
