Christmas Present Makes

I know this is awfully late, but I made a lot of things for Christmas which I was pretty proud of, so I thought I’d share some of them! One of the things I did right for Christmas was getting started early – even if I didn’t finish them early, I knew everything was cut out ready to go.

Christmas 2013 Outfits6

An outfit for the son of a friend of mine. The shirt was made from a mens Tshirt and the shorts from a thrifted mens shirt. I returned to my old favourite patterns for this one: The Beachy Boatneck from Blank Slate Patterns and the KID Shorts from MADE

The same thing, but with different fabrics for the son of a different friend. I have three very close friends, 3 of us have little boys, and the other has a little boy on the way. Luckily I have some good boys sewing patterns, but it would be nice to sew a frill once in a while!

Jac's Present1

A sewing tin for my sister who got her first sewing machine for Christmas. I included a USB with some free patterns and tutorials on it for her

Biscuit bags! The tin from my sister’s present had biscuits in it, so I sewed up these little reversible bags to package them for other family members

Christmas Gifts4

Squirm’s Christmas day outfit. I really wanted something which was wearable outside of Christmas, so I went with a green pattern for shorts, white for the shirt and red details. This was the Beachy Boatneck and KID Shorts again – they’re just so good!

And his Christmas Eve pajamas. I bought the singlet at the shop, but the pants are a shortened KID shorts made out of a knit material with a little embroidery on the leg

Bags! I got this epic Mo material at Spotlight and made a reversible bag using this tutorial.

I also made one with this coffee label material which was in my stash. (I made a similar one for my mother in law too)

Bags galore! These were for my mother in law, mother and sisters

And two more of the reversible pouches – just the right size for a Bunnings gift card and a chocolate.

I was really happy to be able to make so many of these things myself – people are definitely appreciating hand made more these days!
