Handmade Gifts -part 4- upholstery bags

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas.  We did. My sister in Maryland, was suppose to fly in Christmas night, but had to move it up to Christmas eve because of the weather.  I was fun/crazy to have all eight cousins opening gifts together. 

Christmas Night is my favorite part of the day.  My dad works all day on a feast of prime rib, salmon,shrimp, and my favorite king crab legs.  For dessert he makes creme brulee and chocolate mousse. After dinner we gather for a prayer of thanks and open handmade gifts from each other. I've blogger about it HERE. There is always crying, we are a bunch of babies, and a couple of unfinished gifts.  My family gave some amazing gifts this year.  I'm excited to share them with you in a few days when I can get some pictures. 

Until then I'll share some of my handmade gift the next couple of days. 

For my mom and sisters I made upholstery bags.  I made one a couple months ago for myself and love it. I tried to find fabric to match everyones personality. 








I'll be back tomorrow with another gift.

These bags are beautiful! How difficult are they to make? Do you break very many needles?

I love these! I think the purple is my favorite. I live near a fabric store that has a great selection of upholstery fabrics and I have been wanting to make a bag like this for a while! Great job! Would love for you to come visit me at Sew Chatty and link up to Made with Love Monday. I host every week. I am leaving the party open longer this week so that people can link up multiple projects if they wish to. Hope to see you there! http://sewchatty.blogspot.com
