Christmas Craftiness

Here are a few of the things that I made that we gave as gifts for Christmas 2009. I love making a good deal of our gifts. It just makes things more personal and hopefully lets people know how much they mean to us. There are a few more gifts that I haven't finished yet (we have an extended Christmas since we have family and friends spread out over a pretty big distance). I'll hopefully have a chance to post them after I'm done and after we've given gifts. These have all been sent out into the world already, so here you go....

These light bulb Christmas ornaments were for my piano students. I made these and another style that had an angel on them.

These sock animals were for my daycare kiddos. I loved making them, and hope they enjoy playing with them!

These napkins were for Little Bro and Sweet Lizzy. I love making napkins, and really, really love working with cool Amy Butler fabric!! There are more pictures of these so that The Bum can revel in their Amy Butler-ness from afar

Oh, teach me how to do the sock animals! I've never done them before.

They are so easy! The hard part is finding good socks, and stuffing is always a pain in my rear. I used the patterns in a book called "Stray Sock Sewing" and "Stray Sock Sewing, Too" by Daniel. No last name. You're welcome to borrow them, or they're available at Michael's. Great pics that your girls will enjoy, too. They were fun :)

You know I love the sock animals, too. You should also post pics of the playfood you made for one of my kiddos. You need to be selling these things online, girl!

I thought I had! I posted them on the shop blog. I'll put up a post with them here. Good idea!
