Before 2011 ends I want to take a moment to look at the homemade Christmas presents. Both the ones I made and gave away and the ones I got. For more inspiration check out my Pinterest board “Making Christmas Gifts 2011“.
But before I show off the photos I just want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Today I am 39 weeks on in my pregnancy and waiting and waiting for the baby to want to come out. In all likelihood it will happen in January as December is all but over now. I can’t wait to show off all the clothes and other goodies I have been knitting and sewing for the little one. If you are interested in some of the tutorials I have been using have a look at my Pinterest board ” Creating for baby“.
A bag I made for my husband with embroidered (not by me) birds (he is a big bird fan)
A tray my husband and I decoupaged with maps for my little brother who is studying geography.
I made these Christmas stockings for my husband and myself using this free tutorial.
My sister made this vinyl record bowl for my husband. There is a free tutorial for this here.
She also made him this fab pencil case for his art pencils.
For me she made this pretty shawl which I can’t wait to use.
