It's Thursday! Time for some more making and listening!
Before I share what I have been making for the upcoming holidays, I wanted to show you my finished Autumn Sampler. I think I will try to frame this one.
I have started making Christmas gifts. I prefer making things as opposed to buying presents. Christmas has never been a holiday I have celebrated a lot, even growing up, my birthday was always a bigger affair than Christmas. I would like to start celebrating the winter solstice more this year and I am looking for suggestions. Leave me a comment if you have some.
My mother-in-law knows I enjoying making gifts and recently gave me her wish list. I started this past weekend with her quilted artist tote bag. I created my own design and I hope it will work out. For now, here is a sneak peek. It isn't much yet, but you can see the fabrics I chose:
I also started making pillowcases for my kids. Two of these are made with flannelette and are super soft. The Hello Kitty one is regular cotton, Celeste chose the fabrics for it. I followed a tutorial for making these easy tube pillowcases. They are super easy and fun to make. I think I will be making more!
Here is the tutorial I followed:
