Christmas Gift Projects

This Christmas season, I had a fun time creating a few gifts and special orders.

Lana requested a few infinity scarves, and I made an extra one to give as a gift at the quilt guild meeting.  At the guild meeting, I received a handmade gift of a zipper pouch filled with notions and a few fat quarters!

Ellen requested that I copy a pattern for a kids apron she made for her son years ago, using fabric especially for her grandson and granddaughter.  They turned out cute and I practiced using bias tape.

I made a tree skirt (free pattern here) for Asami and Matt.  This turned out to be an easy and fun project, and using the big space for ironing and laying out pattern pieces at Sewing Saturday was helpful.

I also made a table runner for my friend Jill at work.  She just bought a new house and I wanted to give her something sunny and positive for her new space!

At school, we came up with the idea of a “Season of Caring” where each advisory class came up with a project.  Ms. Lowe’s group decided to make no-sew fleece blankets for charity.  Great job, kids!

I’ve been working on this baby blanket since after Ryan was born this fall.  It’s finally done as his belated Christmas gift!

 

 

Random Gifts and Special Orders

Sometimes it’s the random request “could you make this?” that provides the most fun and chance for creativity.
