**fair warning, this post is picture heavy
It was exciting to figure out fabrics for each person and try out some new tutorials. I also made turtle bark and put some in each envelope before mailing these zipps out to friends.
|all of them together!|
I made zip pulls for each with a charm and beads. This one's for C so, of course, the charm is a crown! This print is so fun in everything I've used it in.
Next up was this coffee themed one for L! Her charm was a sea shell to remind her of the beach and I really love the colors.
It was a bit trickier to find fabric for S but I really hope she likes it! I loved this one too and used a heart charm for the zip pull.
Next up, my first triangle bag for Snaps - in the coolest fabric ever! I love these llamas and used the matching Peruvian blanket fabric from Laurie Wisbrun for the inside. Her charm is a turtle. :D
Then I made one for L after pulling her school colors! Hers also got a sea shell charm and I dropped it by her desk this week to lots of smiles.
Lastly, I had extra time on my hands since my flight home was cancelled due to high winds & storm. My apartment is super clean now with all that extra time and while catching up on Psych episodes I tried my hand at the wide mouthed bag tutorial.
It was lots of fun to make! I used scraps to piece the outside panels and used a fun Snoopy fall-themed print for the lining. I also fussy cut Snoopy for the zip tab. Momm loves Fall and I thought this bag would be perfect for her. Especially since she hasn't tried this tutorial yet!
Well, that's all of the homemade gifts I made this year and I hope everyone loves them as much as I do. Merry Christmas!
