The holidays tended to go quite fast this year, and I didn’t get pictures taken of everything I made for everyone.
I made a few gifts:
– A white fur minky infinity scarf. It was very plush and the gift recipient was quite pleased.
– A white fur minky/Zebra fur minky cowl. It was a birthday gift for a friend, whose birthday was the 22nd of December. It was quick to make up, and she loved it.
– Our niece is expecting their first in March, so the family bassinet needed an upgrade. I made a new liner for the interior, and a new crib sheet. I got one cell phone picture of it, before they took it back to Tennessee with them. I quilted the pieces before I attached them together and then covered all the seams with bias binding. It ties in 7 places to the bassinet wicker.
– The kids each got several fleece pants and matching shirts. Here are a couple of them:
I made this top and skirt (and scarf) at some point in November maybe?? These are patterns I drafted that are in regular rotation for me, so nothing too earth shattering.
Another shirt and fleece pants for Kai that I made earlier. Who knows where that quote came from?
Boyd Crowder in Justified. “Remember your ABC’s. Always Be Cool”
Love that quote. The show is pretty great, too. 🙂 Obviously, I had to make it into a stencil for a shirt. I wrote out the quote in Photoshop with my Wacom pen and then imported it into the Silhouette software. You have to mirror the quote. I have a tendency to forget to do that, so I left off the “Remember your ABC’s” part. I had done it wrong and ran out of white.
I think that is all I have to show for the remainder of 2014…at least for the things that I took pictures. I am not as anal about getting pictures now as I have been in the past. Honestly, I have made so many of these types of things, so many times, that taking pictures just seems to be repetitive.
