I'm finally posting some pics of recent craft projects!
Girlie tutu for Isabelle's bday party - I have enough of the ribbon to do another one of these for Kira:
Scarves for FIL and SIL bday gifts:
kind of lacy for SIL:
a smidge more manly for FIL (he actually couldn't tell the difference between the two!):
I learned how to crochet from a friend who learned how from her dad. She didn't know the names of the stitches when she taught me, so I haven't been able to read a pattern. I thought I should go back and teach myself how to crochet. Derek brought home a book from the library and I have yet to find any of the stitches I currently use in the book. So, I don't know what it is I've been doing all this time! Ah well, I can make scarves and blankets with my crochet-sort-of technique.
- I'm finishing up a baby blanket for my nephew's Christmas gift. It's crochet-sort-of.
- I'm working on a checkers quilt for Jackson. I have the squares (64 of them!) all cut out (Thank you Kam and Teri so so so so so so much for the cutting mat and rotary blade!!). I need to sew the board itself and figure out how I want to do the border. I've never quilted before, so I thought this would be a good starter project.
- I'm going to make a mini dress up kit for my niece (almost 4) - with a tutu, superhero cape, and magic wand.
That's all the Christmas I've started so far. If you're doing a handmade Christmas, I'd love to hear how your projects are going!
