Every Christmas has its own sewing projects. This year I finished a quilt someone else started and gave it to one daugher. I altered, decorated and added to our Christmas stocking collection. And failed to take any photos of them. I had requests for an apron, which was purchased, a handbag, which is still under construction, and a stuffed whale. I think it is fun that my kids still ask for toys for Christmas even though they are now 25, 23 and 17.
The whale pattern idea came from this blog: http://valaanvillapaita.blogspot.com/2011/05/tee-se-itse-valas.html
This blog is written by someone in Finland. It doesn’t matter that even the translation is hard to follow. The pictures are fun. And if I could knit, it would be tempting to copy other things she has made.
This idea came from here: http://maker-land.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/hedgehog-pincushion-tutorial.html?m=1 My version is about the size of a baseball.
Maybe next year I will take more pictures of any new projects and post about them while it is still December.
What did you make this Christmas?
