Christmas trees

I made three stuffed christmas trees.  I was so happy I found this fabric.  Its perfect.  All I did was draw the shape I wanted, cut it out, sewed and stuffed.  Pretty simple stuff, all though none of them turned out the way I wanted.  That's ok, they have character.  I think im putting these on my kitchen table for the season.

Candy Cane dress

So, I have decided I love coming up with new ideas!  If you've been reading I have cut up a bunch of old t-shirts to make a quilt.  well, in the process, I ended up with a bunch of scraps.  I have taken a few of them and made myself a cute little dress. I didn't realize that it looked like a candy cane til after I made the dress.  all I did was take a few of the bottoms of the shirts, sewed them together into strips, and now I have a cute dress for christmas! I might add straps or something but here it candy cane dress:

christmas PJs!

I have finally got our christmas PJs done! I did a pair of pants for him, and pants and a dress for me! It was really quite easy to make them all. For the pants all I did was trace a pair of PJ bottoms I already have, cut it out, and sewed the pieces together.  There are tons of tutorials out there showing you exactly how to do it.  Most of them are for childs sizes but you can use the same technique for adults, I did! For the dress I used an old tank top and made it longer.  I also went with a square neck instead of a rounded neck.  I had fun making these.  I love seeing things come together!
