But making for me is fun too!

I have been so happy because this holiday season has inspired me to make some pretty fun things. But I still had time to squeak in something for me. This pattern is a New Look pattern. Right now I can't find the pattern to put the number but I will update it later when I do. I am in special love with this peter pan collar and I think I will be making more of these. They are just so cute! I like that in this picture it looks like I am wearing cute cigarette pants even though I am really wearing work capris. I feel very 60's/hotel maid.

I have a couple of other shirts in the works for me, along with numerous christmas presents for my fam. Today is a perfect "make" day too, because the weather is so rainy and cold. That is my favorite! I am just going to put on a movie and knit/sew.

Im pretty sure that making presents is my favorite!

Or just making in general. I made this little elephant purse for Ryan's niece for her 7th birthday. It is from the Wee Wonderfuls book by Hillary Lang. I think it came out cute, especially because I used fabric I had on hand. The one in the book had a bow on her head, I changed mine to more of a flapper headband. I LOVE it! I hope she does too!

Here I am modeling it. It is a little too small for me but I think you get the point! I used sweatshirt fleece for the body and it worked out great. It is a little small for a bag, but it could hold money or something like that when you go out. It is probably better for a 7 year old's tiny hands too! haha

This is the underbelly where the cash goes.

I love Present making season! Well all except the part where my pics are so dark because the sun doesn't shine when I am not at work. But, that is the way it goes! And the fact that it is acceptable to watch Christmas movies and listen to Christmas music makes it all better.

Oh, Hey.

Hi There! It has been a minute. I have been busy. But not blogging :( and now it is Christmas present season so I can't even share with you the cool stuff I am doing. But I CAN show you some stuff you missed!

Ryan's mom and Step Dad came and they got Tattoos! Well Joan and Ryan did...

For Reals! Aren't they cute?

It was my OTHER cute little nephew's birthday! I made him some funny shirts and a sock skeleton. He really likes after dinner game shows...

Then it was Halloween, and we put out some pumpkins!

This present second, I am working on a really cute present for Ryan's niece, it is her birthday tomorrow. Now that we are all caught up, I feel much better. Now I can do some more cool stuff and can share it too!
