Finished Sewing Projects! Yep, I did something.

First up, aprons.

Made this for a friend to give her mom for Christmas. McCall's 5643This one was for a gal at work who is in her fifties and celebrated Christmas for the first time this year(er, that would technically be last year, huh?). She needed a Christmas apron, don't you think?? This pattern is called Four Corners.I made this apron for my Etsy shop, but it never made it that far. I took the inventory from my shop to work w/me and sold out in a day! Yay! But I wouldn't have minded NOT selling this own design.Next up, a knitting bag for my sister for Christmas. A friend of mine is a knitter and gave me some advice before I started on this bag...a wide bottom, plenty of pockets and sturdy handles. I took a bag pattern that I had on hand w/a fairly wide bottom and modified it to meet her other suggestions. I was pleased at how well it came together! And as a last minute decision, I made a roll up needle case to match the bag. When I bought these Amy Butler fabrics i had no idea what I was going to do with them(but I couldn't NOT buy them). I think they were perfect for this project! Aren't they yummy?

Love the aprons! I might have to go get that McCall's pattern. And as a knitter, I can tell you that the bag and needle roll are awesome! What a lucky recipient!

I invite you to link up to my blog to show your finished projects every Friday.

let me try again.....your aprons are gorgeous. I love the knitting bag.
You should make a ton of stock and take it to school with you more often!

I love the apron you sold at school! I also love your cute crab bowl for the dip. (Notice how I always focus on food?)
