Is everyone surviving the lead up to Christmas? I don't blog about the holidays much (ok, ever), but still think about them just like everyone else. I'm not super into them (dysfunctional family...), and they come fast and furious if you want to blog about them and I'm just not organized enough with my blog posts to keep up! So I've made the executive decision to not blog about them at all.
But real quick, if you are still entertaining thoughts of making some Christmas gifts, here are two pattern suggestions:
- Grocery Bags - Super duper fast to make, good gift for just about anyone, make them in denim/cord/canvas for the guys, the small ones for lunch bags, and a good end of the year stash buster to boot.
- Card Wallets - Make Size 1 and get a gift card. These are less than an hour project and if you use a snap (like this one) it goes even faster.
Now about these photos...I finished this rose pincushion today. It's available in my etsy shop right here. There's still time to order for Christmas and it will ship Priority mail. During this last week before the USPS Christmas shipping deadline I upgrade shipping automatically if you spend $10 or more.
And of course, you can also get the pattern and make one yourself. I'm guessing, but think it would take 2 or 3 hours to make one the first go round. I can hustle one of these out in one hour, but conditions have to be absolutely perfect--no messing up and no breaks!
