Handmade Christmas

Yeah I know, Christmas was weeks ago, but I couldn’t post these BEFORE Christmas, lest the recipients spy them out!
See, I have four awesome sisters that are all either teens or very close to it. And what does every teenage girl need? That’s right, a cute purse! And oh guess what? I have lots of fabric sitting around begging to be made into cute things, so I found out favorite colors and got to work!
I wanted to keep every single one of these bags! But I was good and actually gifted them :)
The far left and center right bags were made with the buttercup bag pattern from Made by Rae, and the far right and center left were made with the Juliet Bag pattern from Me and My Sister. I did shrink the Juliet bag to 70% size though, cuz I wanted a cute little bag. But now I think I’m going to make a full size one for myself…time for a new purse!
And while I was thinking about my handmade Christmas stuff, I realized I made another gift but TOTALLY forgot to get pictures! Luckily, it was for my mom, so I will get pictures to post soon! It’s not cheating to “borrow” someone’s scraps to make them a gift, right? Tee hee!
Have a great weekend all! I am feeling much much better today, so I am off to enjoy naptime the best way possible…quilting!
