    Default A few things I've made for Christmas gifts

    Hi,

    As I mentioned in my welcome wagon post. I said I'd share a few of the things I've made for Christmas.
    I've used thrifted/scrap fabric for a tiny teen bag- bright yellow/pink.

    I used fat quarters to make the criss cross coasters- you can find the directions by typing in criss cross coasters into google, look for the all sorts blog. They are there.

    I also used fat quarters to make the head bands. You can find the instructions for these on Heather Baileys blog. Use google it pops right up.

    The pajama pants were made for my daughters. I hit the Joanns sale on black friday and got the flannel for .99 yard.

    The photo arrangement I will be giving to my adult daughter. I did the photos, bought the adjustable decorative curtain rod for $5 from big lots. I just need to cut lengths of black grosgrain ribbon to hang the photos.

    The purse I made recently. I've gotten addicted to making all kinds of bags.

    You did an amazing job on all of them!! The pink bag looks very similar to one I bought for almost 20.00 last year!! Everyone who is getting these gifts is very fortunate

    Beautiful items! What lucky gift recipients. An all cash Christmas is the best kind.

    Very nice. What are the three photographs mounted on? How are you attaching the ribbon?

    Thank you for your nice comments. I feel very humbled. I just really like making stuff. It's very therapeutic to me.

    The photos are 12x12, 10x10 and are mounted on a special type of matt board by the lab. I will most likely use some type of heavy duty tape to attach the ribbon. It's a cheap way of getting out of expensive frames.
