Although this was the year of the covered notebook, there were some other gifts made. In fact I gave out several handmade things this time around. Not sure where I found the time to make them though! Without further ado, here was the other gift lineup:
Many headbands and a couple of rosette clips:
A fleece UK blanket for my dad:
Kameron’s robot quilt for his toddler bed:
This was a simple square patch quilt, backed with white flannel, quilted with simple lines. It is nice and cozy and was to go with the robot blanket I made him last year. It looks cute on his bed!
A pennant bunting for my niece’s wall:
A little hat for Kyler:
Cute reversible pants for Kyler:
These pants are the “quick change trousers” from Handmade Beginnings by Anna Maria Horner. I love this book! These pants took me awhile with 4 little ones to take care of, but the pattern is easy to follow and they are the most adorable things ever! I have plans to make more of these for Kyler. One side is Car fabric from Riley Blake with brown flannel on the behind. This reverses to Brown flannel with owls on the behind. The whole time I was working on these Taylor offered her two cents. She thought they looked huge and would not fit and made that known. However, they fit perfectly!
A house pouch for a little girl:
I made several of these in the summer of 2010 and when looking for a quick easy gift for a little girl I remembered them. I stuck some paper dolls in it for fun. The roof fabric and the paper dolls are by Sarah Jane Wright, my fave designer/illustrator. If you haven’t seen her work please go check it out. Fabulous!
