***Merry Christmas***

Merry Christmas to you!!!  
It has been a very busy December getting ready for my kids' favorite holiday. 
 I've had so much fun sharing some of my favorite patterns and gifts to make the past few weeks.  
You can find a recap and all the tutorial links [HERE]
Handmade Holidays are the best : )  
I was able to finish up a few more gifts for my family which I will share today.

My mom has been doing some embroidery and I wanted to make her a few useful and cute items to keep her embroidery supplies at hand.  I made the pouch big enough to hold a small embroidery hoop with inside pockets for storing notions and supplies.  The dress on the pouch is from my Vintage Dresses pattern reduced to 6" tall.

The needle book has a paper pieced design with my favorite "Kerchief Girls" print as the focal point.

Two front pleated pockets hold embroidery thread.
My favorite feature is this cute little scissor holder.

My boys both have MP-3 players and are always misplacing them!  I thought it would 
be fun to make a gadget pouch so they could keep their player and earphones in one place.

It was fun to put together a boy colored palette of blues, golds and browns.

Every Christmas my boys get a new stuffed animal in their stocking.  I found these cute Husky dogs but they needed a little something to make them extra special.  I made each a hand knit scarf and think they look extra adorable.

Wishing you Love, Peace and Happiness and a 2016 filled with Joy!
