Thomas and Abbie's Pillows

 
 
More Christmas projects, here are pictures of Thomas and Abbie's(my friend Michelle's little ones) monogrammed pillows.  I made several pillows this year for gifts.  I like making pillows and pillow covers.  These were pretty easy I found a free pattern online for paper piecing the letters and just sewn them together.  I hope they liked them I made Abbie's pink and flowers, and I made Thomas' green and black with camo print on the back.

Homemade Purses


Ok, all the presents have been opened so now I can post some of my Christmas present projects.  I made two purse this year, the grey for my sister and the red one for my niece.



  The grey was made from Pink Chalk Studio pattern no104, Mail Sack. I pieced the bottom half together with varies yellow and grey fabrics.  Inside is an open pocket and a zippered pocket.  Its a cross-body bag and the pattern come in two sizes.  This is the smaller of the two sizes. 



 
The red purse was made from a Pinterest tutorial.  Here is the link if you would like it http://imaginegnats.com/madeleine-tutorial/.   This bag also has an inside zipper but this one has a snap closure as well.

Another Christmas present done, I hope my aunt will like her adult coloring book and homemade colored pencil roll.  I modified a crayon holder to make it big enough to hold colored pencils.  Here is a great and easy tutorial if you would like to try and make one.
