Handmade holiday gifts

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas day!  Ours was really nice.  Started with brunch at 11 and the day finished with this yummy yule log my daughter made.

In between there were presents, plenty of cooking, a walk in a beautiful sunny afternoon and a settle down on the couch for the Doctor Who Christmas Special.

It was nice to have a family Christmas with all three kids at the house.  Plenty of laughs and hugs.

With the planning and wrapping all done and behind us, I wanted to share some of my handmade gifts.

I did several boxy bags (tutorial here) - one for my mom and one for my sister-in-law

Plus one each for the men in my house - husband is a runner and my son a math geek (his fabric is Elementary line).  (These were made from start to finish on Christmas eve.)

Each of my sister's got one of my Pretty Trash Bags - pattern in my Craftsy shop.

I also made one for my Dad - this fabric is from Spoonflower and created by taking a photo of his VW bug and some photo shop magic from my daughter.

Have a great day!

Happy Stitching!
