handmade gifts -part 7

Here is the last of the gifts I made this year, I'll share what we got next week. 

For my art loving niece,

a custom art bag filled with supplies and...
a personalized clip board to match. 

Ever since I took this picture of my son at Halloween, he has been begging me to make him a boy apron. 

This is much more manly. Who knew a boy could get so excited over an apron. 

I don't make our Christmas PJ's. I don't need another project. I fell in love with the vintage print on these PJ's and wanted everyone to match again, but couldn't find something for the baby.  

So I bought the largest nightgown in the same fabric I could find and...

made her some to match. 

I then used the tiny scraps left over to piece together a pair for Samantha too. She already had the nightcap. 

Would you be interested in doing a linky party of handmade gifts? Something we could all look at when we need ideas for next year? If there is enough interest, I'll do one.

I finally have some time at the computer. I love all your handmade gifts, of course. I think the link party would be fun, although I took NO picture of them as I was making them, because I didn't think about posting after Christmas and knew I could not before. Love the purses you made, I made something close but bigger and baggier to hold my daughters yarn.


Happy New Year,
Cha Cha
