More Handmade Gifts and Christmas Decor
Christmas is almost here and I am still finishing some gifts.
I made these bags for my nieces.
They are " In Cahoots" from Quilts and more winter 2010.
You can find the free pattern at the "All people quilt" website here .
I made them on the girls favorite colors. Each one is also getting a gift card and a Barbie dress that I have to make yet. Just a simple velvet black dress and a crochet wrap made from furry yarn (Fun Fur leftovers). They are ages 9 and 11 and had Barbie clothes on their wish lists.
Now some Christmas decor.
We live in a small two bedrooms apartment, what means not lots of space. But we do the best we can with what we have.
The Tree. This is the first year we have a big one. I need to make more cross stitch ornaments. This is a serious new year's resolution.
We also have annual picture ornaments of Brenda. A fun way to document her growth.
Now some other Christmas decorations.
The Gloria & Pat website has this and many more free cross stitch patterns . Just click on the pictures.
Redwork wall hanging. Pattern from the Gooseberry Patch Christmas Book number 4. I made this about 6 years ago.
Later I turned it into a pillow. Feliz Natal is Merry Christmas in Portuguese, my native language.
Hope you enjoyed my long post.
I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas.
