A Homemade Christmas

Here is the post of Christmas Gifts that were made:

A lumberjack tote for my Dad:



A bag for my Grandmother:


Coasters and mugs for the teachers:


PJ pants for the kids:




Sheet quilts for the kids:




Messenger Bags for both kids:


A jacket and beret for my niece:


Pillows from my Grandfather's bed quilt from when he was a boy (Sara, I do have your's!!):


An apron and potholder for my brother's girlfriend:


And I think that is the majority of the gifts. The pillows were the easiest - they measure 18" square. And I made 10 of them total. I don't have pictures of the sheet quilt I made for my Mom (still in progress) and the fleece vest I made for my niece, Avery.

And I am starting in January for the 2009 Christmas gifts!

I hear you on starting early!! I'm trying to have a handmade year this year...all gifts handmade, so that means I have to start this month, too.

All your gifts look great! I love those pillows!

Well done! Love the pillows from the old quilt...great way to divvy it up..especially if is was getting tired. Sheet quilts?-are they just pieced and backed light ones?
Oops, you may like to call at my blog.....

It's so good you've documented your handmade gifts. What a treasure, past, present & future. Each and every gift is fun, happy and useful! I hadn't seen the lumberjack tote, your grandmother's bag or Tyler's messenger bag. Love ALL the fabrics you picked and you did a fantastic job, of course!

Happy, happy days and here's to an early start on Christmas '09. :)

Peace, Ana
