Since all of these gifts have been given already (with the exception of the ones for Paul and LP who don't read my blog) I thought I'd share some of the homemade gifts I gave this year.
My local girls got little ruffly clutches:
And their families got jars of gingerbread caramels and heart ornaments made by LP (the ornaments, not the caramels!):
My mom was in the market for a new apron and I happened to have the perfect fabric in my stash so made her this one:
Along with some coordinating hot pads:
After Christmas we're heading to Vegas to visit family so LP got a felt play set to entertain him (hopefully!) on the long plane ride:
I printed pictures of all of the Lion King characters on the computer and then laminated them. Glued the scratchy part of some velcro to the back and the stick right to the felt. The whole thing rolls up.
Whenever we travel Paul throws his hairy razor into my toiletry bag so I decided it was time for him to have his own. I found this great GTO fabric on etsy.com and made one for him with a vinyl inside.
I also made a coordinating drawstring bag for his shoes:
And while this cuddly flannel blanket was a birthday present for a new little one, I thought I'd share it as well:
Two other things I made recently are my very own labels! It's something I've been meaning to do for a while but just never got around to. I made both quilt sized labels and smaller labels and printed them out on fabric that can go through the printer. I love how they turned out!
