Holiday Handmades

Sewing makes me happy, so in spite of everything that was going on I was still able to stitch up some handmade holiday gifts for my friends and family. 

I made half a dozen pairs of these pillowcases. They are my new favorite gift to make. You only need 2 yards of fabric to make a contrasting set and just by changing the trim and fabric they look completely different. Plus, sewing them up really is magic. Check out that tutorial. 

Batik for my mom to match her purple room. 

Red holiday for my mother in law since she loves red. 

Vintage cars for Robert's uncle Danny. 

Batik trees to match my Christmas quilt, if I ever get around to finishing it.  

Blue and green snowflakes just because they are pretty.
