Christmas Gifts

I am just now posting two of my favorite gifts this year- gifts I made and gave to others. I enjoyed making scarves out of Moda fabric squares and a sweet manger set for my step-niece.

New Shirt

I just love this new shirt- a pattern I borrowed from a friend of mine. I thought it was so cute. Unfortunately, Katie was as excited about it as I was, but did wear it after some coaxing.

Puppet Theatre

Last year I made this puppet theatre from an idea I found in a book. I found the pattern to have too many details, and thus began to stray from the original idea. I also made a bag so that it can roll up and store easily. Katie pulled it out the other day and I finally remembered to take a picture. She was using two puppets my Grandmother Lunsford knitted for her. She has had so much fun as the puppeteer!

Nap Mat Cover

I saw a nap mat for sale in Charlotte over the weekend and upon arriving home, decided to try to make my own. I used fabric that my daughter chose (Ariel) and a KinderMat, which I covered. What do you think?

Baby Wipes and Diaper Holders

I saw a friend with a neat baby wipes/diaper holder. I thoought I would make up a few of them and add a matching burp cloth to the set. What do you think?

Girl's Dresses

I love making "pillowcase" dresses. No, they are not made out of pillowcases, but they are as versatile as a pillowcase! These dresses are cool during the summer and, when worn with a shirt, are great for the winter too. I always make hair bows that match the dress fabric. Sometimes I even make a baby doll dress out of leftover fabric. I usually make several sizes out of one print of fabric. They are machine washable and already preshrunk.

Drink Coaster Sets

I've sewn up just a few of these coaster sets. They are fun to make- especially seasonal ones!

Drink Wraps

Wrap up your drink to keep it cool! They work well with most cans, plastic bottles and glass bottles. I've made a lot of these in different fabrics.

Reusable Notebook Cover

Reusable composition and small notebook covers are great for dressing up the typical black and white composition notebook. I have really enjoyed mixing and matching colors while making these!


These headbands are great for holding your hair back in the summer. They are reversible- essentially two in one! When they become dirty you can just toss them in with your washing machine! I've made several for my niece, friends, and myself.
