Since I have not managed any art lately I thought I would share all the things I made at Christmas time. This year I ended up making quite a few things. I couldn't show them when they were made but now that the recipients have them its time for all of you to see.
I made five utility aprons, this one is for my friend Celeste. She is a spinner and knitter so I added a sheep to all the buttons in the placket.
This one was for Janet, she loves purple so I went through my stash looking for purple fabrics.
I made a tote bag from this fabric for my sister last year, so I took the scraps to make her an apron this year. She really loves New Mexico so its perfect for her.
My sister Peggy loves coffee so I chose some coffee cup fabric for her apron,
and lastly my daughter loves cats so it had to be cat fabric for hers. One of our cats is a siamese so I made sure to applique one that looked like Lucky.
Sarah started crocheting so I made her this holder for crochet hooks
This is the holder opened and you can see she has it filled already. I was really pleased on how well it turned out. I had seen a similar one on Etsy so I made my own pattern and tried it in muslin first. I tweaked the pattern a little before cutting it out of the fabric that Sarah picked out.
I also did some knitting, I made my daughter these fingerless mitts.
Then after Christmas I made my sister Marianne this pair, and then Sarah wanted purple one's so I made her a pair too! She kindly modeled them for these pictures, thanks Sarah.
