A Few More Christmas Gifties :)

This is my favorite time of year.
For our family, we don't see the Christmas tree until
Christmas Eve and we keep it up for at least 2 or 3 weeks after Christmas.
While others are taking down their decorations,
I get to really enjoy the beauty of it all
with no stress, just joy :)
I hope you have all enjoyed your time with
family and friends!
I just wanted to share a few more gifties
that I made and couldn't show until now.
I cross stitched the little Doxie and made it into
a zipper bag for my dear friend Amy :)

For my friend Denise, I made a "mug apron" organizer.
They are great for holding scissors, pens,  & crafting supplies!
I used Simplicity 2450.

For my beautiful DIL, I made these fun potholders :)
I just fell in love with the fabric!

Right now I'm working on getting all the info together for
the After Christmas Sew Along.
We've got some great prizes from some very generous people
so look for that info to be posted on Friday!


  1. And I LOVE my mug apron! It has been filled and is sitting next to my sewing machine with my "go to tools". Thanks Karen!

  2. More lovely gifts! I especially like the little doggie zipper bag --

  3. OMG, I LOVE the zipper bag!!! It's gorgeous!

  4. Everything is absolutely perfect :-)! One day I will be able to sew well enough to make something really special for you :-)♥!

  5. I knew the first pouch had to be for Amy, I'm sure she loved it! It's so cute! I can't wait to hear the details on the after Christmas sew along!!

  6. ok so i'm a bit behind on blog reading! I truly love the doxie zipper bag. I now carry it with me when I travel as my "in flight" bag. It holds my necessities - ear phones, chapstick, hand lotion and mints. I love it Karen! Thank you so much
